Yorkiepoo and a Salmon

My daughter was recently given a Yorkiepoo, a tiny bundle of puppy with black silky hair, who weighs only a pound or so, but is nothing but a ton of pure cuteness and love.
The Yorkiepoo, named Poo, is so adorable, and funny. I have never been fond of dogs, but fell in love with Poo. He likes to chew on shoes, on my fingers, and fall asleep in my arms. Of course he does this with everybody, so the whole house is smitten with this teeny rascal. He also likes to fall asleep on top of my feet.
Yesterday Zee decided to cut off some of that silky hair while I held him. Poo squirmed and Zee cut, and cut, then shampooed him. I have never laughed so hard. Poo looks half his size after that haircut, and the haircut was, um, shall I say---gappy.
Poo now has a Mohawk, and an unfortunate strip of hair nearly shaved off on his back. I have never laughed so hard. I am laughing as I look at him now, as he tries to chew up a book I'm reading about King Tut. Oh my, never too old to fall in love!

Then this morning Zee was given a frozen salmon that weighs at least 20 lbs. I didn't know salmom could get that big. She gave half of it away to a neighbor so she could get the rest of it in the sink and wash it off before cooking it. She's in the kitchen now wrangling with it. I'm keeping my mouth shut about how to cook it, because I've never cooked a salmon. (Give me a catfish and I know what to do with it.)
I think she's gonna cut it up and fry it--we'll see how it turns out.
Got to go cuddle that Poo again, bye from susil

Sounds like a cute pup!

Hi jj; he is a rascal and a Houdini-he can get out of his doggie harness in no time flat!

There is a recipe for salmon in foil that is quite good on food network.
It takes the fishy taste out and makes it bearable for people who are
used to fried cat fish like you and me.

Hi jeri; I had a sister who would grill salmon steaks and it was good. But the way I like salmon best is prepared as salmon patties served with cocktail sauce with lots of horseradish.

Nothing like a cute, cuddly pup to lift our spirits.

Hi Laura; that is so true-I have learned to keep the door to my room closed because Poo likes to go in there and chew on electrical cords. When he can't get in, he scratches on the door and whines. Of course someone always picks him up and pets him right away.
Best of everything to you,

Cut salmon into individual portions. Coat with mixture of olive oil and vinegar, lemon juice if desired. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, paprika to taste. Bake at 325 degrees for 35 - 40 minutes depending on thickness. If one end of a portion is really thin, turn it under, or overlap it with another piece.

Hi teal, if I ever encounter another salmon in my lifetime, I will suggest that recipe.

Fried salmon!!! NOOOOO! Grilled baked or barbecued. Although, I prefer mine smoked.
I wonder if I could talk cat loving DH into a teeny tiny pooch.

Hi nittin; Well, it got fried, and was good--Zee had at first thought of grilling/smoking it, but finally settled for frying.
nittin, just get DH to hold a tiny, lively, loving pooch like Poo, and he won't say no to it!

I like to grill it with a bit of butter, salt and pepper. Serve with lemon wedge. Mono likes dill on hers. Sounds yummy!

Hi karen; butter, salt and pepper, dill and lemon sounds good to me!
Hope you are doing well.
