Have I mentioned that I'm growing herbs...and peppers...and tomatoes...and all the things necessary for a good salsa?! Yep. During this time of quarantine I have found my green thumb. Well, only time will tell, but everything is still alive and growing so I'm considering it a success thus far.
While we wait for the salsa-ready bounty to bloom and ripen, the herbs are coming along nicely. So nicely that I cooked with them for the first time this week! Huzzah!
We were craving salmon and as much as we love Blackened Salmon this one feels more like summer. Fresh herbs, minced garlic, Herbs de Provence and Garlic Herb Bread Seasoning. Yes, Garlic Herb Bread Seasoning. I needed a little something extra for the salmon rub, saw it unopened in our pantry and thought "what the hell! The label says its good on other things, too!" For those curious, it's from The Spice Hunter and the ingredients are: garlic, paprika, onion, oregano, basil, thyme, cayenne and marjoram. It really was the perfect addition to this seasoning blend.
The salmon was delicious, easy to make and done in 20 minutes. Definitely a winner, people.
