WEDNESDAY MEMORIES: From 8/18-2015. Southern-Dry Rub Roasted Salmon with Chimichurri Sauce, Sweet Potato Fries, Cherry Tomatoes and Steamed Green Beans
Price: Dinner for 4 people. Remember, this dish is not $10 or under because of the salmon. It is ok to spend a little more for your meals sometimes! Indulge
Steps to Follow: (In this order)
1. Prepare the Chimichurri sauce first and then set aside.
2. Season your salmon well and set aside.
3. Steam your green beans and set them aside.
4. Stir fry your filet medium well.
5. Plate the dish, garnish, and serve.
Ingredients for the salmon: (Purchase four steaks)
2 Atlantic salmon filet
¼ cup of Olive Oil
Generous amount of any southern BBQ rub seasoning (Memphis or Texas) you have in the pantry.
Ingredients for Chimichurri Sauce: Chop the first three ingredients, and then add the liquid ingredients. I usually eyeball the liquids to ensure they are not overpowered by the dry ingredients. Remember, it is a sauce, however, if you want to cut down the oil a bit, do it. Use at room temperature and refrigerate leftovers to use with beef, chicken, etc.
1/2 cup chopped Parsley
½ cup chopped Cilantro
5 cloves of chopped Garlic
3 tbsp. Red Wine Vinegar
2 teaspoons of Lemon Juice
½ cup Olive Oil
1 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. fresh grind Pepper
Pinch of red pepper flakes (Optional)
Sweet Potato Fries (2 large)
Peel the sweet potato and cut them in thin string pieces to fry them fast. (You can also bake them by marinating the strings with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Bake at 350 degrees until done.)
Steamed green beans in chicken or beef broth until tender. Watch to ensure the beans keep the crisp green color. If they start to change, shock them in iced water. Add the cherry tomatoes and enjoy!
