Toronto, Canada, taken on October 13, 2015
Salmons are resilient creatures as they must swim upstream against violent currents to spawn. While strolling along the Don River with my dad one autumn day we saw HUGE salmons in the river, jumping fiercely against the current but failing to reach the high point time after time. Then after a few minutes, they tried again, failed again, and prepared again to continue trying. Keep going, buddies!
Tonight’s dinner was a farewell for Kana with a few friends at 7e Art. First up – “saumon tartare” as an appetizer, lovely!
I’ve been indulging myself with salmon for the past month, and realizing how good baked salmon tastes, I made it again for dinner. Yum!
Not sure why I randomly went into a salmon frenzy today, but hey, why not? I wanted to try some new recipes before I invite my friends over again, and salmon became the main character. After a trip to the grocery store, I made asparagus wrapped in smoked salmon and pan-fried rosemary honey salmon, and I ate everything on the table. Oh, plus some instant noodles as well, just because.
One thing I missed about Toronto is good Japanese food everywhere, especially the AYCE…indulgence to the max! I love white tuna sashimi, though of course you can’t miss the classic salmon 😉
