dash of garlic powder
1 tsp of sugar
Italian seasoning (marjoram, thyme, rosemary, savory, sage, oregano and basil)
Pepper flakes (optional)
Grated cheese ( i used cheddar)
Uncooked spaghetti

Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper.

Cook the pasta according to package directions.

Heat the olive oil. Add onion and bell pepper strips. Cook until until slightly soft.. Add the salmon fillets. Cook about 5 minutes, turning pieces often. Add crushed tomatoes and simmer for about 5 minutes.

Season with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, sugar and pepper flakes. Simmer for another 3 minutes.

Serve over pasta, grated cheese and enjoy!

Pizza Flavor Baked Mussels (kind of)

without comments

I was supposed to cook the green mussels tinola style but Leng wanted clams instead. So we bought half kilo of both (para walang away hehe). I decided to bake the mussels but  instead of using garlic-butter mixture I experimented with tomato sauce-garlic mixture. Here’s the result. IMG_1571


green mussels
grated garlic
tomato sauce
Italian seasoning
grated cheese
1 tsp. sugar (optional)

Before cooking, soak the mussels in water for 20 minutes. Clean the mussels by removing the beard, additional sand and other organic attachments. Rinse the mussels under cool water then towel dry.

Combine tomato sauce, garlic, sugar and Italian seasoning. Simmer for 2 minutes. Set aside.

Bake mussels in a pre-heated oven for 10-12 minutes until partially open. Remove half shell. Top mussel meat with tomato sauce mixture and grated cheese. Bake for 3 minutes until cheese melts. Serve immediately then devour!
