About that goat that’s been hanging around here, oh don’t worry, I mean goat cheese! I know some of you (yes you!!) will say something like “eeewww, first Bulgur and now this!” But believe me, even if you don’t like it, the Vodka and the spices and herbs match so good with this that you won’t even notice it’s goat cheese anymore (ok, almost then) but if you have added enough Vodka (to your glass) that might work as some sort of beer goggles too. Vodka goggles, what an idea, I found this on the internet (purely coincidental) read this:
Vodka can also help make the opposite sex look more attractive than they really are, or plied with enough vodka, a member of the opposite sex can find you more attractive than you really are! So if all else fails, tip the bottle up and drink it!!
Told ya… gimme more…!
If you would like to know more about the usefulness that Vodka seems to be having (other than getting people inebriated), keep an eye on the Bar Talk Page these days…you’ll be amazed!
But now we’re going to cook, while we still can!! It’s an easy one, as every recipe should be. Oh and it’s important not to use a large oven tray, the smaller the better because now the salmon will bubble nicely in the Vodka! And yes, you’re allowed to stay close to the oven, that smell!!
2 salmon fillets with skin
1 garlic clove, mashed
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
½ teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
½ teaspoon dried chili flakes (take less if you don’t like too much heat)
3 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup Vodka (yes I realize that IS a lot, use less if you think that’s better for you…)
1.5 cup soft goat cheese
In a small bowl, mix the olive oil with the garlic, lemon juice, lemon pepper seasoning, Italian herbs, chili flakes and stir. Add the Vodka.
Place the salmon fillets in a small oven tray (skin down) and pour half of this mixture over the salmon.
