Hot dang is it hot out! And of course, when it’s hot out and I’m hungry, the best thing to do is to eat like I live somewhere even hotter then where I currently live! Thus, the practice of baking meats floating in puddles of tropical fruit.
This particular instance of said practice involves salmon. This started off with the intention of being just Mango Salmon, but the pineapple was being whiny. See, mangoes and pineapples are pretty good buddies. When there’s a crazy salmon party going down, one has difficulty if it’s not invited and the other is. So I decided to let the pineapple in on the action. This turned out to be a pretty good idea, because this was totally a BYOJ event (bring your own juice) and lets just say that the mango showed up empty handed. Or as they say: my pineapple brings all the moisture to the yard! So the salmon got to soak a bit, quite enjoying itself I should add. The cilantro, as usual, totally crashed the party, but it definitely spiced things up! The carrots, stodgy old buggers they are, were there, but luckily the pineapple’s juices totally softened them up as well, if you know what I mean.
Post-party was a complete mess, as you can see:
My mouth was rather efficient at cleaning up the mess though, so it was all good.
