Recipe for Fun by Bryan

Learning how to cook is as easy as 1..2..3!

A couple of you asked for the recipe for my plantain crusted salmon, so here it goes.

Disclaimer: I kinda eyeballed everything and nothing really is exact.

What you need:
Salmon filets
1 bag – Plantain Chips
Garlic Powder
Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 350 F.
Clean your fish and then squeeze lemon on both sides.
Dust both sides of the salmon with salt and pepper.

In a blender or food processor, take your plantain chips, oregano, and garlic powder and crush to your desired “crush factor.”

Lightly coat both sides of your salmon filet with olive oil and then dip in plantain chip crush.

Place on cookie pan covered in aluminum foil and bake on the top rack of oven for 10 – 15 minutes.

Eat and be merry.

As far as the smashed sweet potatoes, you can either boil sweet potatoes, then peel them…

Or you can cheat and buy yams in a can.

Blend the sweet potatoes with a little water or milk.
Add a little salt and a little light brown sugar.
Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes.

Eat and be merry….again.

The thought of salmon reminds me of my voyage to Chowderfest this weekend, but if I told you about that now, I wouldn’t have anything to tell you about tomorrow.
