Friday Ramblings and Chimichurri Sauce

28 Jan

TGIF everyone! I’m so glad the week is OVER and weekend is finally here!

Btw, remember the Chimichurri sauce I made last time? My salmon turned out GREAT!

Baked Salmon (or other fish) with Chimichurri Sauce (adapted from The Food Lovers’ Primal Palate)
1-2 Tbsp Avocado Oil
3-4 garlic cloves
Handful of fresh Italian parsley
Dash of salt
Dash of ground black pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
Freshly squeezed lemon juice (3 lemons)

1. Mash garlic and parsley in your food processor (I used my mortar and pestle since the amount is not a lot and I didn’t feel like washing my food processor)
2. Mix everything and refrigerate until you’re ready to bake the fish.

3. Line the salmon steak on the baking dish (I pre-seasoned the salmon steak with some salt before)
4. Pour the Chimichurri sauce over the salmon

5. Bake in 350°F for about 25-30 minutes


I had extra sauce so I used it to bake the Star Butter Fish as well. Delish!

Yesterday I had some stomach indigestion *ugh* after devoured the whole package of this:

Don’t get me wrong! Artisana Coconut Butter WAS SO YUMMY that I couldn’t stop myself. I was driving home and was kinda hungry and this thing popped in my head. So without hesitant, I just scarfed down the whole thing. One bite, two bites and I was like “to heck with it, I’ll just finish the whole thing!”

Since it was in a cooler temperature, the texture was kinda chalky. It might be better to melt it a bit so it’ll be more like a spread. But it melted once I put it in my mouth. I guess now I learn not to indulge it all at once or my stomach won’t be happy. No more indigestion. Good thing I didn’t barf.

Have a good weekend!

Btw there’s $50 iHerb shopping spree giveaway!

    That salmon looks great and the sauce sounds yummy. I love avocados, but have never tried avocado oil before. Sorry about your indigestion. Hope you’re feeling better now. I probably would’ve eaten that whole bag of coconut butter also. Have a great weekend!

      Avocado oil doesn’t have any taste to’s just a healthier high smoking point cooking oil compared to vegetable/soybean oil. My indigestion only lasted that night..thank goodness 🙂 Have a good weekend to you as well!
