Tequila & Sriracha Glazed Salmon

Salmon! It’s my fave. I am SO excited to be moving closer to an ocean – I’m hoping it will mean fresher, more plentiful seafood in my life. I’m a west-coast gal, born and raised, so it’s been crazy these last five years living in the Midwest. I’ve loved my time here, but I am SO ready to stop feeling landlocked all the time. I haven’t spent a summer at home since I was 19 – I miss going to the beach! And I miss mountains! I’m so excited for a change of scenery, even if it does mean going farther away from home.

On a side note: I hate packing. HATE it. Partially because I always feel like I have better things to do with my life and partially because it means I have to live without access to a bunch of stuff I use on the regular. Like…I packed up my ice cream maker today, which in and of itself isn’t that big of a deal, but as I wrapped it up and put it in the box I was all “Wait – what if I want to make ice cream tomorrow?”

Not that I WOULD have made ice cream tomorrow, but knowing that I don’t even have the option of making whatever I want is super duper annoying. Watch, now I’m going to crave ice cream all day every day until we get to New York. Ugh.

Also, I just realized I didn’t tell you anything about this salmon yet. But it’s good. You should make it. Change up the amount of sriracha you add based on how spicy you like things – the amount called for will give it a nice kick, but kick it up or down a few notches depending on your personal preferences.
