- Quick Preparation
- Seafood Is Expensive
In a state of divine inspiration, and late night hunger, an idea came to me. This is not insignificant because in the past I’ve been able to conjure up very simple meals, and lately they consisted of fish and potatoes, or toast and avocado, or cereal. You know, these are the types of food that a man can make that doesn’t take too much effort, are healthy, and that captures the hunger and tosses it away.
This evening I created a meal that is more interesting than a simple fish and potatoes meal. I call it Abundance, and the name is a take on the Po’ Boy. We’re not poor, we’re rich with opportunity, possibilities and declarations for the the future. We’re rich in our lives and our friends and family, and the people we love and the lives we stand for. We take a stand for people.
That’s Abundance, and this is that meal.
In house I had shrimp, salmon, potatoes, onions, spices, bread, butter and olive oil. These are the ingredients.
I started by peeling eight shrimps and cutting them into pieces. The salmon was filleted from its skin.
In a bowl I mixed the two seafoods and doused them with spices. I love the Paprika for look. It’s red, vibrant and ads a touch of visual magic to the dish. It’s subtle flavor means you can add a lot for look, and not worry about saturating the flavor. Then I added a variety of Lawry’s spices, garlic, some of the garlic oil, and the rest of the ingredients you see below. The Old Bay is great on seafood!
Next, switch to the vegetables. Cut and dice half a small onion and start sautéing it on low heat. Add in already baked potato, about a quarter of a small sized potato.
Finally, add in the Abundance. Let the spiced salmon and shrimp sautee for about 7-10 minutes. Mix all the goodness in the pan.
Meanwhile, get a sourdough bread toasted and slather on some butter. I use Land O Lakes Olive Oil and Salted Butter. Fantastic.
Prepare on a plate, make the sandwich douse in lemon and Red Rooster Louisiana Hot Sauce and serve.
Final note. These proportions serve two, or make for a health second helping. Feel free to have it all if you are eating alone! Great and easy meal.
The prep time was about 15-20 mins!
