“That golden corner looks yummy,” sad my best friend. She and I are constantly in touch during the day by text when we can’t call each other. Sometimes, our banter will be serious and involve big, life decisions. Other times, it will involve what material for a rug is “ideal” for a dining room (anybody have any advice on that one?) or what we’re currently eating. I sent her a photo of my lunch from yesterday as we talked food this morning and her first response was, “that golden corner looks yummy,” and she was right. It was yummy.
This week at The Modern Bee, we’re settling in with Debi Young. In addition to being a busy makeup artist in the film and television industry, she’s also a fabulous cook. When I asked her what her favorite thing to eat or cook was, she shared her recipe for this salmon dish. I made it the other night and made sure to have extra for my lunch the next day and definitely recommend it for anybody who loves salmon, eats salmon on a regular basis and is looking for a new way to flavor it up. I made a few edits (swapped out bok choy for the peppers because I had a bunch of it in my fridge, and maple syrup for the honey because I have a lifetime supply of it, which is a whole other story) and it was delicious, easy and satisfying. What kind of person would I be if I didn’t share the recipe? Check it out below and enjoy. -Michaela
