I gotta tell you about this fish.
And not only because I’ve met the owner, Rob and fell in love with him and his cedar-plank salmon at Blend 2014. And not because one of my best friends works as the Social Media Coordinator for the company. And also not because when you go to price this fish out, you’ll find that each filet comes out to about $5 – much less than if you ordered it at a restaurant – AND that’s including the shipping cost!
I actually really just LOVE fish.
And having it once a year when we’re down in Destin, Florida just isn’t enough.
Sizzlefish offers perfectly portioned, frozen seafood right to your door! If you’re like me and live at least 7 hours away from the nearest ocean, you’ll understand the hesitation that comes with ordering fish in the mountains. My mind just doesn’t go there. If I saw items like “Coho Salmon” or “Sablefish” on a local eatery’s menu, I’d probably make a “ehhhhh-face” and skip right to the cheeseburger (mmmm…cheeseburger….).
Honestly, when I received a sampler pack of some of their filets, I panicked a little. I don’t cook fish (read the paragraph above). My friend Katie told me to do something simple. Something Lindsay-ish, she said. Hmmm…Lindsay-ish.
So I plopped down on the couch and googled “Crockpot Salmon.”
Yes. Yes, I seriously did.
To my great surprise, turns out there are like 600,000+ recipes out there for cooking salmon in a crockpot. Go figure. I almost went there but decided not to. This fish is special and deserves better than a 2 hour soak in that little appliance. Chili, yes. Coho Salmon, no.
All I did was pull out my Calphalon sauté pan, defrost two salmon filets (10 minutes in warm water) and then pan-sear them. Just to get a little bit fancy (and because I’m 4 and like to dip my food into sauces and stuff), I whipped up a quick dijon topping (equal parts spicy dijon mustard and plain greek yogurt). I served it all up with a side of my spaghetti squash/hummus/spinach creation and Travis and I sat down to a meal in less than 20 minutes. We “mmmmm-ed” and “ahhhh-ed” through each flaky bite.
I was at the beach, you guys. Except in my pjs and at my house.
