Of all the ways there are to cook salmon, baking it is one of the easiest. Just brush the fillets with a little olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and cook in a hot oven on a foil-lined pan for 10 minutes. No fuss, no mess, no difficult clean-up. One of my favorite things to serve with salmon is avocado. In this recipe we are gently tossing avocado with a little chopped mango, red onion, serrano chile, and lime juice for a sweet, sour, and savory salsa (try saying that five times fast!) Perfect to adorn our simple baked salmon. Enjoy!
On any given day after a run to the farmer’s market, you’ll find a bowl full of red radishes, greens and roots lopped off, soaking in water in my parent’s refrigerator. My father loves radishes. Whereas some parents put out cookies and chips for their kids for snacks, my dad put out radishes for us, and still does. Crunchy and cool, they’re a great snack. Cut up and tossed with some lemon, oil, mint, and pistachios, they make a great little salad too, or a lovely side for steak, Mexican pulled pork, or tacos. We tossed the radishes with toasted pistachios; I’ve also made with with toasted sunflower seeds, equally good.
