I Said No Salt On My Margarita!

I must confess, I don’t really like margaritas (especially with salt on them!)  My buddy Steve used to walk around saying that totally out of context, fun.  **update-I have mistakenly referenced the WRONG movie in this post.  Yes, I know, stupid on my part and I should have known better, I published a big blunder.  The quote is from Milton of Office Space, much apologies people.  So without further ado, I give you Milton, in all his glory.

"I said no salt in my margarita, no salt!"

This post has nothing to do with margaritas, just salt.  For tonight’s meal, I didn’t use ANY salt, instead I used fresh orange juice and garlic.  You might also notice a theme for this week: chicken, mushrooms and asparagus.  We get a farm fresh delivery each week and we tend to use the ingredients until they are gone.

I marinated a 6oz. organic chicken breast in fresh orange juice and garlic for about 25 minutes.  I marinated the asparagus in olive oil and garlic powder (powder makes a nice little crusty coating when it’s grilled.)  I am hooked on herb goat cheese so the mushrooms got stuffed with it.  After I grilled the chicken( about 9 minutes) I squeezed the rest of the orange onto it.  Delicious!

Not bad, a little smoke, earth with a slight fruity finish

A little glass of Shiraz and a couple orange jelly slices and it’s a great night!

  1. That quote flashed me back to Milton on Office Space. “I said no, no salt on my margarita. There were big grains, big grains of salt”
