Fajitas

Source: Simply in Season
Date tried: July 15, 2012
Yield: 4 servings
Time needed: 20-25 minutes

This is a fajita filling that can be made with a variety of meats marinated in a choice of sauces.  I made it today using venison (purchased at our local farmers’ market from farm-raised deer) and the cilantro marinade. I love it!  The blend of cilantro, chili powder and lime juice imparts a tantalizing flavour and worked well to tenderize the meat so the quick cooking over high heat did not dry it out.

Asian Grilled Salmon

Yield: 4 servings
Time needed: 30 minutes

I had a bit of trouble with this as I was using a gas broiler for the first time, and not sure how that would affect timing. Also, I found no fresh salmon, so used frozen. It was still a pleasant dish, but I think with fresh salmon and a familiar broiler or grill it would have been excellent.
