Sweet-glazed Arctic Char with corn salsa
I’m checking in a bit later than usual today because I had a doctor’s appointment this morning, and because I kind of got side-tracked watching Lionel Richie on The Today Show.
Talk about a great way to start the day!
As this number one fan watched Lionel’s performance, I had an egg-white omelet with spinach and red onion sauteed in some olive oil. I also had my favorite sprouted wheat and rye toast.
Are you proud of me for switching up my breakfast again?
By the way, I loved reading all of your favorite breakfasts in the comments yesterday. You gave me some great ideas!
Going from the subject of breakfast to dinner…
I made a really good dinner last night that was inspired by one I saw in my Trader Joe’s cookbook.
Sweet-Glazed Arctic Char with Corn Salsa
1 1/2 tablespoons Earth Balance butter (melted)
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
(original recipe called for agave instead of the butter and brown sugar)
2 cloves fresh minced garlic
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 Arctic Char filets (or salmon filets per the original recipe)
Trader Joe’s Corn & Chile Tomato Less Salsa (to taste)
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Stir the melted butter and brown sugar together along with garlic, vinegar, and ginger. Place the fish in a casserole dish and brush with the glaze. Cook for approximately 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with as much or as little salsa as you’d like.
I really loved this meal, and even though he isn’t a huge fan of fish, Michael enjoyed it too.
After dinner, Michael wanted to fly some of his RC planes, so I decided to join him. We went to a nearby field, and after a few minutes of flying, it began to rain.
Once the rain cleared away, we were left with a beautiful rainbow…
And then we saw a double rainbow!
I love how seeing things in nature like rainbows, sunsets, and baby deer never gets old- and I love how men get just as excited to see them too.
Have you ever tried Arctic Char? It tastes a lot like salmon, if anyone is curious.
When was the last time that you saw a rainbow?
Have a great rest of the day!
