Salmon Poached in Wine #pescatarian

Pescatarian means I eat feeeesh (known to the general public as fish, which doesn’t do justice to its delectableness and delightfulness).

We got some, frozen, and I put it in a pan with some vegan margarine. For those who don’t know, I use vegan margarine because I think it tastes delicious. I use Smart Balance with EVOO (which sounds like a lot more fun than it is, EVOO standing for Extra Virgin Olive Oil).

Okay, so there’s frozen salmon inna pan. I sprinkled it with Jane’s Krazy Mixed-Up Salt, ’cause that’s how we roll.

I put the timer on seven minutes. The salmon began defrosting and throwing off water. Oh, noes! Well, I know a trick worth two of that, so I parried and counter-thrusted with a buttload of white cooking wine. While I was at it, I threw in some mushrooms. Because: mushrooms.

Seven minutes later, I flipped the salmon, krazy-salted that side, and turned the mushrooms. Reset the timer.

The water and wine evaporated, leaving the margarine to glaze the salmon and mushrooms.

On the side, there, are sweet potato fries, ever-so-slightly over-baked in the toaster oven.

Gonna do that ‘un again sometime.

      I like rice with fish, too — we have it so often, I thought I’d mix it up a little this time. I think the orange of the raw salmon put the sweet potatoes in my mind.
