Teriyaki Salmon

June 1st, Friday:

  • Miso Soup (Wakame Seaweed, Rice and Gluten Crouton, Carrot)
  • Twice Cooked Pork (Pork, Cabbage, Red and Green Peppers, Green Onion)
  • Teriyaki Salmon
  • Rice
  • Milk

Twice Cooked Pork is apparently some sort of Sichuan Chinese cooking, but I can’t say I like Chinese food. I have never been to China, so maybe real Chinese food is different. But while I find the taste ok, the food’s texture greasy and slimy. On the other hand, Japanese fish is so tasty. Today’s salmon was in fact so tasty, adorned in it’s shiny silver skin, that I couldn’t help but bring to mind the riddle Gollum tells Sam while crossing the Dead Marshes:

Alive without breath
As cold as death
Never thirsting, ever drinking
Clad in mail, never clinking.
Drowns on dry land
Thinks an island
Is a mountain,
Thinks a fountain
Is a puff of air
So sleek, so fair!
What a joy to meet!
We only wish
To catch a fish,
So juicy-sweet!

Yum! Yum!
