Mexican Chili and Muscavado Brown Sugar Coated Salmon


photoPlease pardon my long absence, but life gets busy at times, and it is difficult to do all that you want unless being sleep deprived. The recipes have been piling up in my dashboard, but I have yet to find time to edit them.

Well, today I thought i would share with you a very quick recipe that I ate a few days ago. I had some fruit left-over and wanted to find something a bit spicy to counterpart the sweetness of the fruit. The combination is somewhat interesting, but still wonderful. Try if you dare;-)

Ingredients for 2:

  • 1 salmon filet
  • 1 tsp of Muscavado brown sugar
  • 1/2- 1/4 tsp of Mexican Chili seasoning
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1 slice of pineapple
  1. Place the salmon of a small or medium silpat. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the muscovado brown sugar and the Mexican Chili Pepper and stir well.
  3. Coat the salmon with the mixture.
  4. Cook in the oven at 400 for 5-7 minutes. ( I like my salmon still flaky and moist). You may need to cook a bit longer.
  5. While the salmon is cooking, dice 1 kiwi and chop the pineapple slice in small cubes. Mix the two together.
  6. When the salmon is cooked, place it on a plate and spoon the fruit mixture over it. YUMMY and so HEALTHY!!!

Easy Dessert or Snack: Tropical Fruit Salad.


I cook most days. Sometimes though things happen that makes it difficult to have dinner in a timely fashion. Tonite was one of those night. I had been running all day and all evening and had so much work to do still that I told my husband he would be on his own as far as his dinner. Me? I was not very hungry but was craving something fresh and light. I did not want to just eat a fruit, too boring and so unappetizing… I had some kiwis, mango and those wonderful persimmons in my fridge and though I had bought them to make a tropical dessert of some sorts, tonight they looked like a very appetizing dinner;-) and so this is what I had: Tropical Fruit Salad.

For two servings: 1 whole mango, 2 kiwis, 2 persimmons. Peel all the fruits and dice them in small cubes. Place them in a small bowl. Add 1 tsp of turbinado brown sugar and stir. You may also add 1 tsp of flavored rhum. Yum! Et voila!!!

This was such a treat!
