Wisdom Calls said...

I love Salmon. I think i prefer to make it myself than eating it at a restaurant because they tend not to cook it fully. I love the way it looks in your pic and that's how mine would look but not in the restaurants, it always looks a bit raw..

I will try out this recipe.

AmeborAnjelar said...

Yummy! yummy! Salmon one of my favorite fish. Inshot I love sea food to-bad. I can seat all day on your blog.. Now am feeling hungry.

os said...

I did, and I loved it.

Don't know if you've thought about it but how about publishing your top recipes as a cookbook? There a very few, if any, cookbooks targeted at Africans or Nigerians in the diaspora that present taste-friendly, easy-to-cook recipes with easily accessible ingredients abroad. Take this recipe, for e.g.. Salmon is easily available but the suya pepper/peppersoup seasoning makes you feel you're eating a Nigerian dish as opposed to what many Nigerians will consider plain Western-styled bland salmon.

os said...

Meanwhile, copyright your recipes (even if it is as variations of other recipes).

9jaFOODie said...

@Wisdom calls: yeiiii.. let me know how you like it.

@Ameboranjelar: I am a seafood lover myself, lol...sorry about the hunger.

@OS: my sister!! Thank you :)... there is actually a book in the works :D...I didn't want to announce anything officially yet, so you are the first to know in blogville. On the copyright thingy, I have someone looking into it. Thank you so very much for having my back, I really appreciate it love, God bless you.

Sounds easy to make and looks like it will be a treat to eat.

9jaFOODie said...

The Relentless Builder said...

Oh my goodness! I would never have thought of using suya seasoning on fish. I prefer fish to any other type of meat and croaker is my favorite. But the Salmon works very well too. Thanks for the inspiration! This is what I'm eating for dinner.

9jaFOODie said...

Yeiiii... you are welcome :)

Koinonia said...

The salmon texture is just right, nice and succulent. Not too dry and not too moist. I'm not a big fan of tomatoes though, I'll add some red pepper in it's stead......Hope that doesn't spoil the taste .

9jaFOODie said...

Nah... it will be just fine without the tomatoes.

Locs Galore said...

Tried this recipe (with a different fish...can't remeber the name) and served it with brown rice....very nice!!!

9jaFOODie said...

@Locs Galore: hooo I am happy to hear that, thanks dear

@Desperatehousewife: why am I just seeing your comment ooo... sorry love. I am sorry I don't know a local name for it... you can try using croacker or Tilapia though.
