  A day of cooking
I was on my feet practically the whole day cooking! In the morning, I made pancakes and crepes with Betty Crocker instant pancake mix. Well, I am no pro and I don't have a skillet or a griddle. I used a flat pan to cook the pancakes. Hence, my pancakes are thin and rather dried up. They looked horrible but thankfully, the taste was good (I added chocolate chips and cheese in a few of the pancakes hee hee). 

I made crepes too using the same instant mix because my little bro still wasn't full even after eating like 4 pancakes. He has a big stomach damn! The crepes are kinda dry and I have no idea why. I followed the recipe exactly! But I added a teaspoon of vanilla essence though haha. Still, I don't think a teaspoon of liquid can make my crepes dry... 

Anyway, I checked the ingredients stated on the package and saw that Betty Crocker uses bleached flour. Wth, they really should be using unbleached flour!!

I took a break by watching the diary of a wimpy kid, funny show and touching at the ending. Then,  back to cooking. I made salmon in orange juice! Yum! It might sound weird to you, but seriously the orange juice somehow added taste! Yummy!

So here's the recipe. It takes only around 20 minutes to prepare if you're a fast-mover.

1. Defreeze the salmon 2 hours before you start. How much salmon meat depends on how much you eat. 1 fillet per person should be enough.

2. Squeeze the juice out of 1/2 orange, the orange shouldn't be too sweet nor too sour. Pour the juice into a deep metal plate or tray. Add around 1 tablespoon of soy sauce or more if you like it to be salty.

3. Slice the salmon with a thickness of 1 finger, its length is up to you. Just cut it to fit your mouth. 

4. Put the salmon into the deep plate/tray of orange juice and soy sauce. Try to make sure the salmon is completely soaked in the juice, look for the right plate/tray size. Leave it marinated.

5. Prepare vegetables. Whatever you want. You need a balance diet ;)  

6. Steam or bake the tray of salmon and juice for around 10-15 minutes. If you're planning to bake it, then make sure you heat the oven at 200 degree celcius for around 10 minutes before you start. Bake it at that temperature. You may add thick vegetables such as tomatoes or carrot into the salmon and juice.

If you want sauce, you can try making orange juice yogurt dressing for your veggie (if you plan to have your veggie raw or tasteless). All you need is plain yogurt, orange juice and soy sauce. Mix them together in the ratio of 4 : 2 : 1. Say for instance, for 1 person's serving, 2 tbsp plain yogurt, 1 tbsp orange juice and 1/2 tbsp soy sauce should be enough.

*It's better to use pure orange juice, the one freshly squeezed from the fruit. Processed orange juice doesn't taste the same, but you can try.

That's all for now. I'll be making white chocolate parfait and crumbles soon!
