Happy Friday. We made it. Now don’t get me wrong, I still have plenty of work to get caught up on this weekend, but it’s the weekend, so I can half ass it, right?
Anyway, it’s Fitness Friday, Foodie Friday, and Foto Friday all rolled up into one big Flavor Ball. This Friday is all about Mojo. Not really sure what Mojo really means, but to me it means spice. It means sass. It means magic! So here’s a little bit of my MOJO flavor to end the week.
Sweet and Spicy Mojo Salmon with brown rice and papaya salad.
This is quite easy to make. Take a spicy marinade, like a Jamaican jerk or Southwestern flavor, add it to a pan with a little white wine, garlic, lemon, water, and basil. Place the salmon fillets in pan and coat with sauces. Then cover and steam on medium high for 10-15 minutes. I add the basil last 5 minutes. For the papaya salad, use romaine lettuce, grapeseed oil, balsamic vinegar, goat cheese, chopped zucchini, and pine nuts (optional).
This dish goes great with a light red. I used a classic table wine from this vineyard. Definitely a good buy!
Oh and don’t forget the great view! It completes the MOJO dinner.
Next up are my MOJO Healthy Bites flavor. Yes, these were MAGICAL!! Can you guess the flavor?
It’s Muddy Buddy Mocha and it just so happens to be Vegan and Gluten Free. Magic in the making people!
And last but not least, my MOJO playlist. It had been way too long since I made a playlist for teaching classes. Here’s the one I used for my cycle/yoga class. It’s sassy, yes?
Alright, that’s enough flavor talk. Enjoy your weekend! I’m off to celebrate Wine Friday.
What’s your Mojo like this week?
