|Crispy salmon nibbles.|
It turns out that I am horrible at taking the skin off of a salmon filet. I mean really horrible.
What was once a beautiful, plump fish filet turned into a scene from a gory horror movie - sans the blood and a lot more fish bits.
But, it is best to just roll with these kind of things.
Since the whole plan was going down in flames I decided to ditch the egg dip and just coated the salmon (bits) with a mixture of breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, paprika and ground black pepper.
They went into a 450 degree oven (another big mistake) which after 10 minutes I turned down to 400 degrees.
And even though I did my best to ruin this dish - it actually turned out pretty yummy.
Defying the laws of nature and my oven - the salmon was quite tender and juicy - go figure...
But, no fear, I did manage to fully incinerate some of the smaller chunks so the dogs got to munch on those.
I enjoyed the crispy salmon nibbles with a dipping sauce of non-fat yogurt, yellow mustard and a liberal amount of paprika.
So the theme of the day is - embrace your failures because sometimes they turn out pretty tasty:-)
