Spicy garlic salmon & cauliflower rice

After finally having a successful meal for the “try a new dinner recipe” Lindsay and I are doing, we’re feeling more confident in our cooking abilities. For the latest week, we made a spicy garlic salmon recipe from All Recipes and cauliflower rice recipe from The Kitchn. We changed both recipes a bit to fit what ingredients we had available, and it turned out great. We were a bit nervous for the salmon because we didn’t have the proper mustard, but it was still tasty. We were also surprised by how good the cauliflower rice was. I sometimes worry healthy alternatives are sad attempts at the real thing, but this rice was scrumptious and I will be making it again. Stay tuned for our upcoming cooking adventures.
