An easy salmon recipe to prepare with soy and ginger flavors from fivelittlechefs.com #salmon #kidscooking

Next Thursday is "Talk Like A Pirate Day."  My Little Chefs and I thought it would be fun to make a piratey menu for the day and have a piratey activity. Walk the Plank Salmon is an easy recipe. I would say it is a quick recipe except for it has 30 minutes of marinade time.  If you call a recipe that can be made in 1 hour quick then this is one of those. Submerge your cedar planks in water for 30 minutes. You will need to start with a defrosted salmon or salmon fillets. Whether you buy it frozen and defrost it or buy it fresh that is your choice. In a small bowl, combine the ginger, garlic, maple syrup, soy sauce and black pepper. This is a great recipe for your Little Chefs to practice … [Read more...]

It seems when we grill my Little Chefs are starving! I don't think it is because it takes longer to cook on a grill but because we are starting to cook later then usual. If we are past our regular dinner time my Little Chefs get a little unpleasant. Instead of making them wait why not make appetizer skewers that can be eaten while everything else is still cooking. The key is to only make enough to for the kids to be happy, not enough to fill them up. We still want them to eat all their dinner! Skewers are always fun to grill. There are so many different ingredients and flavor combinations that work well on skewers. Today we are using peppers, bread and shrimp to make appetizer skewers. … [Read more...]

Five Little Chefs - Coriander and Mustard Seed Crusted Salmon   Today's recipe was chosen by Little Chef C, Coriander and Mustard Seed Crusted Salmon fromChef Robert Irvine. We watched an episode of his show, Restaurant Impossible, where he was making over a school restaurant. I think because he was working with High School student chefs my Little Chefs were OVERLY excited and enthrawled. Since viewing this episode every time I ask Little Chef D to do something she responds "Yes, Chef!" Its not a quiet response, because Chef Robert explained to the kids when he asks you to do something you need to respond like this, as he yelled "Yes, Chef!" Little Chef D repeats over and over in louder … [Read more...]

Not too long ago we went to a new restaurant. We ordered, sat down, and started eating when Little Chef C said "Mom, did Chef Robert come here?" I had to laugh. "Did he change this place to make it look nice?" I asked. "No, he didn't come here, this is a new restaurant." It has only been open for a few months if I remember correctly. It still had a "new" look to it. It was very bright with the lights, the huge windows and the colors were vibrant. No wonder she thought Chef Robert fixed this restaurant! Whenever Little Chef C thinks I'm turning on the television she says "Chef Robert" as a subtle hint for me to turn on Restaurant Impossible.  I'm not sure why she became attached to him and … [Read more...]
