Pink Chicken


(I’m still “sharing” my laptop with Fiddledaddy.  And I use the word “sharing” loosely, because he has no qualms about ripping the keyboard  from my clinging fingertips while I hang onto his leg as he walks away.  Therefore, while I’m in possession,  I wanted to post a recipe from Januray, 2007.)


A few minutes ago my phone rings. A deep gruff voice on the other end says, “Yeah, uh, could you fax me a menu?” I replied, “I’d love to, but I have no idea what I’m fixing for dinner.”

A moment of silence passed.

Then, laughter on the other end of the phone when Mr. Deep Voice realized his error. Then, click. Just as quickly as he entered my life, he was gone.

I, being starved for a little adult conversation, was willing to discuss his thoughts on what I should cook tonight. Iwas waffling between Marinated Salmon or BBQ Chicken and Cole Slaw.

I went with the Salmon.  (Which my children know only as Pink Chicken.)

Salmon Marinade

3-4 Salmon Fillets
1/4 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice (about 1 1/2 Lemons)
1 T. Worchestershire Sauce
1 T. Oil
1 T. Water
1/2 t. Dried Rosemary
1 Clove Garlic, Minced

Mix indgredients and place in shallow bowl with Salmon. Cover and marinade at room temperature for 30 minutes, or in fridge for 2 hours.

Broil in oven approximately 7 minutes each side, brushing with marinade after turning.

Have an awesome weekend!

  • Pink chicken? I love it. That made me grin this morning. Have a GREAT day, Dee Dee!

  • Hee hee hee. A lovely tale to recount.

  • So is it another “chicken of the sea”?

    I may have to try this, I love salmon and the rest of them tolerate it.

    I am lucky, my daughter will eat just about anything. My son will eat just about anything while complaining about the ingredients he doesn’t like – “I like spaghetti but I hate onions, and mushrooms, and cooked tomatoes”. The rule is, what I cook is what they eat or they go hungry until the next meal. I do make an exception if it is something that I know is going to be too spicy.

  • I’m not cooking today, but my 16 year old daughter is and I’m sharing her blog address so you can check out her recipe blog.

  • How funny! I love phone calls like that. I’d offer to email it and then make up a quick and ridiculous menu!

  • Oh, to have your presence of mind when a man with deep voice calls…

  • Does the “pink chicken” thing fool Jensen too? Cause Jude generally won’t touch anything pink. Hmm…maybe I could say it was “orange chicken”.

  • I just made this for supper, and it is delicious. Thank you!
