Hi everyone. I know I keep talking about the laundry, but I really just can’t believe how much laundry I have to do every day. One of the worst parts about it is the frustration of sorting it into so many piles for every one in my family. I had an epiphany the other day: If I only wash my clothes as well as my husband’s separately instead of throwing all the kid’s clothes in, it will decrease my sorting time tremendously. This may seem obvious to some, but not to me! It’s taken me this long to figure it out but I finally did and it has made a world of difference- and the laundry doesn’t seem as dreadful. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a nightmare but not as bad as before.
We can certainly do this separating in our pantries as well. I like to put all my Asian ingredients and spices in one section and Italian or Latin in other sections. This way I know exactly what I have when I need it.
Speaking of Latin, here is a tasty summer condiment that can be served with fish or as a salsa for chips, etc. I like it with salmon.
Salmon with Spicy Mango Salsa
1 lb salmon cut into 2-3 fillets
2 Mangoes, peeled and cut into 1/4 ” cubes
16 oz. bag Whole Foods frozen Organic Sweet Corn, drained well
1/2-1 whole Jalapeno, minced with seeds , without seeds if you don’t like it so spicy
5 TBS Rice Vinegar
1 TBS sugar
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
Cilantro to taste but make sure it is FINELY chopped or it will taste like you’re eating grass. Make sure it is washed-I like a handful
In a small bowl, mix rice vinegar and sugar together until sugar dissolves. In a med. sized bowl, mix all other ingredients and then stir in rice vinegar sugar mixture.
Heat up a heavy skillet or non-stick pan with a little canola oil. Pan fry salmon until it is opaque in the middle, maybe 4 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of the fish. You can also put it on parchment paper in a baking pan at 350 degree for about 20 minutes or until opaque. Salt and pepper to taste.
Serve mango salsa on top or on the side and enjoy. Can also serve with a few slices of avocado. Enjoy!
