We have four major meals, this weekend and another four on the 7th and 8th days. That is a total of four for two days. As I cook, I place each completed dish, on a list with a designation as to which meal, it is for. I dare not eat it up. It just means more cooking and as much as I love cooking, I am on overdrive, right now and I am not looking to create more meals.
I had to trust it would be edible. That was not my big problem. I could not imagine what to serve it with. I didn't want to use potatoes since we eat more potatoes than you can imagine, on the holidays. No rice, no pasta, no quinoa (although some people do eat this on Passover). What did I come up with? Spaghetti squash. This is a great pairing.
Dinner was a success, much to my surprise.
Salmon with Spaghetti Squash
1 small spaghetti squash
Bake in oven for 45 minutes. Remove and let cool a little. Cut in half and remove the pits.
With a fork, pull out the strands and place in a serving dish.
3 salmon fillets
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoon white horseradish from a bottle
Mix all ingredients except the salmon. Place a little to cover the bottom of the skillet.
Add the fillets and cover with remaining liquid mixture.
Cook in pan for 10 -12 minutes.
Cut salmon into small pieces - 1/2 inch. Place salmon and liquid on the spaghetti squash. Mix the squash with the liquid and salmon. Top with a green like parsley or cilantro. Serve.
Eat and enjoy.
