In the wake of the recent tragedy in Calgary involving young students from the University of Calgary, I feel a particular need to re post this excellent project done by the NUTV television and film club at the UofC
The producers, writers, camera people, editors, stylists, lighting technicians are young, smart funny and talented people, who volunteer their time to make the University a more vital and interesting place. I feel so fortunate to be able to work beside you on this sweet and delicious project. Bless you all, and Happy/Sad Easter.
BITE ME is NUTV's student cooking show that appears as a regular segment on NUTV's Full Frontal Show. The goal of each short episode is to improve the dull culinary habits of university students through a series of fun challenges to demonstrate quick, cheap, and easy ways to cook, broadcast on Shaw Cable and on campus.
Butterfan has been part of a wonderful group based out of the University of Calgary called NUTV, in particular I've been Food Styling a cooking segment entitled, Bite Me. The goal is to inspire University residence students to cook meals for themselves using what they have on hand in their dorm room, not an easy task seeing's how most students only have access to a microwave.
We started off season two with a bang! With two new student hosts we dove straight into fresh healthy options that can be prepared with minimal effort and ingredients (all in a toaster oven no less).
What I really love about this recipe is that the salmon and the kale chips cook for the same amount of time, and at the same temperature making it easy to cook both dishes at once, and making it easy to cook in such a limited amount of space. Here's what you'll need;
Maple Glazed Salmon
2 salmon fillets (1 - 4oz boneless salmon fillet/per person)
1 tbsp grainy mustard
1/2 cup maple syrup (or honey if you like)
1 tsp soy sauce
salt and pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
Preheat your toaster oven to 400 degrees
Rinse and pat dry your salmon fillets with paper towel and then season both sides with salt, pepper
Place Salmon fillets on a tin foil lined tray (shiny side up)
Time to start your glaze
In a small bowl whisk the maple syrup, grainy mustard fresh ground pepper & soy sauce
Pour most of the the glaze over top of the fillets, reserving 4 teaspoons
Bake the fillets in a 400 degree toaster oven or oven for approx 10 minutes, depending on thickness
When they are finished baking remove from the oven and glaze again
Pour the glaze on reserving 4 tsp
Baked Kale Chips
6 large kale leaves
salt and pepper
Directions; Preheat your toaster oven or oven to 400 degrees
Clean and cut your kale into a little larger than bite size chips (they will shrink a bit when you cook them) removing the big white rib in the middle, discard that part.
Toss the cleaned kale in 1 tbsp of olive oil and 1/2 tsp of each salt and pepper. Play with different salts here, use sea salt, spicy salt even grey salt, why not try some of them?
Spread on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper and bake for 10 minutes
