Grilled Salmon topped with an Avocado Lime Salsa

Salmon is what you might hear called, "fillet mignon of the sea" with its rich flavor and nutritional value with a source of protein, Omega 3 fatty acids, and vitamin D. 

When searching for that perfect piece of salmon the flesh should be very firm and together.

SMELL YOUR FISH before you buy: This applies to all types of your fish buying skills, but your fish should smell like rather sweet with a bit of saltiness if it is fresh. Of course if it smells like typical fish smell it should be discarded.  Makes sense right..

Story Time:  Well, we all have ordered a piece of fish off the menu at a restaurant as some point of our lives.  Maybe walked away saying that was the best piece of fish or saying that was the worst.  I just want to point out that if you hate what your eating or tastes funny (Tell Your Waiter).  It's ok to be picky beacause who wants to get sick.  (or pay for food we are not having an amazing experience with)
I had this happen to me the other day.  I ordered an arugula salad and topped with a piece of grilled salmon. I took the first bite and almost gagged with that "fish smell".  Since I just made this video for you guys and spoiled myself by eating my nicely picked fresh fish from the market.  I did not feel bad at all telling the waitress that it smelled fishy.  Then she proceed to tell me, "It's fish, it's supposed to smell fishy".  Here I was just letting her know incase all the fish smelled like this and of course I was not going to pay for a $7 tiny piece of smelly fish.  Then all of a sudden I was feeling bad, like "well maybe that is how it's supposed to taste, and smell", but it is NOT.  And I don't feel bad..

how to make a Baked Alaska

This desserts is my all time favorite.
Let me tell you this is the easiest dessert and is so fun to make.  We are talking ice-cream,  cake,meringue, and flame.  The main ingredients to any desert.  Perfect for a b-day party or get together. Just make sure it's not to hot or it will start melting...

Baked Alaska
thaw out three different flavors of ice-cream
grab a bowl and line it with saran
take the 1st ice-cream and pore it in
freeze it till hard
take it out pour the 2nd ice-cream on
freeze till hard
take it out and pour the third on and freeze
then take cake or I used pre-made brownies and place on top
then you need to plop out the ice-cream but it can be hard
I used a flame or use can place in warm water
then taking the syran wrap from the sides grab and pull out
then top with Meringue
4 eggs whites
2 Tbs sugar
take egg whites and using a hand mixer whip up and slowly drizzly in sugar

just keep an eye on it
top it on the ice-cream then using your flame torch and flame it
