Made this tonight and had the comment of "absolutely A blank-ing delicious"!!! will not say what the blank is but you can use your imagination. lol! I altered it slightly by adding some celery and carrots done on the mandoline and added yellow peppers, subtracted the tomatoes, added a squirt of ketchup and siracha sauce, subtracted the dry mustard, used light brown sugar, and low sodium soy. Pan fried salmon filets, and served with long grain and wild rice. Da bomb diggety!!! Oh yeah - also used straw mushrooms as thats all I had. I will post pictures. Thanks for an awesome recipe!!! It's a definete keeper and will go into meal rotations for my house!
This is a quick and easy dish to prepare. I made this exactly as written and although I cannot handle green peppers, I do no regret putting them into the dish. There were just enough left-overs for lunch tomorrow and DH put his name on that dish! Quick, easy, low-fast & tasty...what more can you ask for?! Thanks for posting a great recipe! Made this for PAC Spring 2008.
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
<ul> <li>In the summer of 2009, my DH and I moved to McGrath, Alaska (on the Iditarod trail) to spend our first of many years there. We live a semi-primitive life, only electricity for appliances, no indoor plumbing and wood for heat.</li> <li>We live in a small village of around 300 people. We are off the road system and everything is flown in. There are 2 stores here but they are small and what is sold is around 2 times what it costs to buy it elsewhere. Many people buy their groceries in other parts of the state and mail it back. Game meat (moose and bear) and fish are very popular. I work part time at the local post office. Most of our meals are soups, stews and one pot. DH cooks dinner about half the time.</li> <li>I like to fish, pick berries, and of course cook. I like to volunteer to bake for the local school bake sales. I like to collect recipes for foods that I have a lot of and can easily get, hence fish, local berries and rhubarb are very popular items on my availability list. I don't have much of a knack for making up my own recipes, so this site has been wonderful as I used to stick to around a dozen different recipes. Before I got married, Top ramen and mac and cheese in a box were my usual foods. </li> <li>My life was different before I moved here. I had more time to cook, now I have very little free time and I cherish the little time I get to sit down.</li> </ul> <p>This life is not for every one, but it is simple and we are learning to live life and enjoy it. ( You don't move to Alaska for the weather)</p> <p><br /><img src=http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/banner.jpg alt= /><img src=http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i25/bayhill/bswap11.jpg alt= />, <br />..................with***Mandy***...................with Carol AT <br /><img src=http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o195/Lorrie61/holidaylinenswap07a.jpg alt= /><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/St%20Pats/4811_68279.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br />................. with Alskann...................with Becky in Wisconsin <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src=http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j10/housedaughter/cswap.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /> .............Adopted by Trinkets.................with Jacqueline in Ky <br /><img src=http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/Zaar%20Food%20Photos/Food%20Photos%202008/herbspicesticker.jpg alt= />,with FrannieJ <br /> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket />, Adopted by Cindy J<img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/honey-pot-print-c10069558.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> with K9 Owned <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg241/borealisbeegirl/ShoeboxSwap08BannerByUmSafia.jpg alt= /> <br />with Antifreesz <br /><img src=http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj294/QueenBee49444/CrazySwapBanner4.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src=http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/Birthday%20and%20Celebration%20Images/spicesswap_amtag1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /> Package sent to HokiesLady ....................with lazy gourmet <br />Received package from Amanda in OZ <br /><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/Purple-Swap-AM-Banner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket />with Susiecat Too, <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt= />................<img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg alt= />, <br /> by FloridaNative.................I adopted Diann is Cooking</p>
