Difference between: shrimp and crayfish (with a glance at prawns and lobsters)

There are always crayfish in this one pond where the fiance and I go hiking. The first time I saw them I thought they were shrimp.

Let’s check out the difference between shrimp and crayfish.

Dijon mustard salmon

I’m proceeding on in the quest to eat more salmon.

Side note: I visited the Bonefish Grill recently for the first time, and it beyond exceeded expectations. I had the sea bass, and I also tried the fiance’s ahi tuna, and my friend’s tilapia. In addition, we had bang bang shrimp and bacon wrapped scallops with mango salsa for appetizers. To say it was amazing would be a gross understatement.

This is a dish I got from AllRecipes.com a few years ago, and have made four or five times.

Ingredients:

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • Dijon mustard
  • black pepper
  • Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • additional butter or cooking spray for greasing

Superb weeknight salmon

Salmon is a food item that I need to get back into. I used to cook it fairly frequently, and have been on an unintended hiatus. 

In my time, I have tried many a salmon recipe. This one is by far the best from my own experience – this 4 ingredient, 15 minute, recipe has triumphed over salmon marinated all day, and salmon I’ve eaten out at restaurants.

This is the best salmon.

Ingredients:

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter, melted (plus more for greasing)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • lemon pepper
