fit food: thai kale salad with salmon and avo

If you are in the mood for something fresh, tangy and totally satisfying, then you have come to the right place! 
Asian Salmon
Soy Sauce
Lime juice
Garlic olive oil
Extra virgin olive oil
I don't have exact measurements for the salmon marinade, I kinda just eyeball it.  I would start with 1 T soy, 1 T lime, 1/2 tsp. garlic oil, 1/2 to 1 tsp. Sriracha and 1-2 T olive oil, for one fillet and adjust accordingly.
Grill at about 400° 3-4 minutes on each side, depending on thickness of fillet.
Thai Salad
1/2 T fish sauce
1/2 T lime juice
1/2 T Sriracha
1/2 T soy sauce
1/2 tsp. rice wine vinegar
1 clove of garlic, pressed
1 tsp. sugar
Kale, cleaned and torn into bite size pieces, enough for a meal size salad
Avocado, sliced
This recipe is for one big ass meal size salad, again, adjust accordingly.
Wisk together fish sauce through sugar.  Toss dressing with kale.  Top with salmon fillets and avocado.

dining in: ciabatta* pizza with turkey italian* sausage, clams & shrooms, cooking light may 1999

One of my absolute faves!  It may sound "different", but it is one of the most tastiest and easiest dishes to create for a fun, relaxed, comfy food kinda night.  I have to admit I stayed at the dining table for about 4 hours this night; listening to a mix of 80's on Spotify, mostly Genesis, and feeding the girls cat nip...very entertaining!
Ciabatta* Pizza with Turkey Italian* Sausage, Clams & Shrooms
1 (4 oz.) link sweet Italian turkey or chicken sausage
2 T flour
1 1/2 C sliced mushrooms
1/2 C skim or 1% low-fat milk
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/8 tsp. black pepper
Pinch of red pepper flakes
1 (6 ½ oz.) can chopped clams, undrained
3/4 C grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
1 loaf of Ciabatta, cut in half horizontally
2 T chopped fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 400°.
Remove casing from sausage.  Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble.  Add flour, and cook 2 min., stirring frequently.  Add the mushrooms, milk, oregano, pepper, pepper flakes, and clams; bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes or until thick.  Remove from heat.  Stir in 1/2 C cheese.
Place bread halves on a baking sheet; spread clam mixture evenly over cut sides of bread.  Sprinkle with 1/4 C cheese and parsley.  Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until golden brown.  Cut each half into 3 or 4 pieces.
