Hello blog world, my name is Boris and I will be your guest writer for today. As this is a blog about food, I’ll be sharing a savory salmon recipe I’ve played around with. But first, a little background on my cooking credentials. I have none. I simply enjoy experimenting with basic ingredients such as: salt, pepper, lemon/lime, butter, oil, basically things you’re likely to have in your cabinet. I’m not a big fan of all the fancy spices and herbs, but if you are, more power to you. So let’s get started.

cayenne pepper
soy sauce

You’ll notice that I didn’t include measurements to any of the ingredients. Everyone has different taste buds and preferences, so feel free to use however much, or little, of each ingredient as you want. And if you don’t want to use a certain ingredient or add your own, it’s all up to you. But for this entry, I’ll be giving directions on the recipe that I used.

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
2. Place your piece of salmon on top of some aluminum foil (make sure the foil is big enough to cover the fish).
3. Rub a light layer of butter on top of the salmon.
4. Cut and squeeze some lemon onto the salmon (you can leave it in with the fish while it bakes if you wan’t a more lemon-infused taste).
5. Sprinkle some salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste.
6. Put some soy sauce on a spoon and disperse it over the salmon (you don’t want to soak the salmon, but you’ll want a little extra sauce for it to cook in).
7. Lightly spread some honey in a “toaster strudel-esque” manner.
8. Bring the ends of the foil up to cover the salmon, but leave a little opening so it’s not completely sealed, and put it in the oven for 20 minutes.

And there you have it. It’s been girlfriend approved, so hopefully you enjoy it.

Hellooo Hungry Students!

I am excited to report that the boyfriend cooked me salmon for dinner tonight because I was super tired after coming home. It turned out to be AMAZING, so I asked him to write a guest post for us! Make sure to be on the lookout for that recipe soon. 🙂

Now, back to the corn salsa! As I mentioned earlier, I was pooped after coming home today because I’ve been prepping for a BBQ that my business club had for its members. We did a Chipotle-inspired setup with lemon-cilantro rice and all sorts of toppings, but my favorite topping from today was the corn salsa I made with my friend Wendy! It was a major hit, and out of all of the toppings, it was the first one to run out! Boo, no leftovers for me to take home. 😦

But, good thing it’s super cheap and simple to make! Here’s the recipe I used:


The only hard part about this is the chopping up of all the vegetables!! Me chopping vegetables is reminiscent of a scene out of the Saw movies, so I let Wendy take care of that for me, while I threw together all the ingredients and added the seasonings according to taste. If you like the corn salsa they serve at Chipotle, I’d say this is almost an exact dupe!

Eat this with chips, in a wrap or a salad, or simply by itself! You don’t have to make a tray-full like we did, but if you make a bit more, this salsa could last you a few meals/snacks and it won’t cost you more than $5-6 to make!

***Added Bonus: The colors look absolutely divine together!
