Baked #salmon in special #spicerub w/ #MangoYoghurt #salad @ Lake Villa, Illinois
I’ve really been enjoying the dijon sauce I typically make for salmon but didn’t want to wear it out so did a throwback to my favourite spiced salmon rub and the result was fantastic.
The salad was good, as always, with the mango yoghurt dresssing, blueberries, granola, and strawberry.
I wanted to try something a bit different with my 2nd time making ribs so, instead of the custom apricot bbq sauce I’ve made before, I followed a suggestion in Snoop Dogg’s cookbook and used a spicy arrabiata sauce for to coat the ribs after baking but pre-broil.
While I had my reservations, it was actually amazing. The spicy arrabiata sauce contrasted very nicely with the sweet from the brown sugar/garlic/pepper rub on the ribs.
The mango yoghurt salad dressing always makes the salad a nice treat. Topped with french vanilla granola, strawberries, and blueberries, it really feels like eating a dessert.
I decided to try something new (to me) for our special night and I made #SauteedClams in #CurrySauce from the #FourKitchens cookbook. They were fantastic <3
The finished product
The homemade curry sauce was added to boiling white wine and tamarind juice
The clams opened up nicely whilst being sautéed
