Cajun Salmon w/ Spicy Eggplant Salsa & Minted Cucumber Relish

This is probably the fanciest recipe I have ever made. A friend of mine typed this recipe up and sent it to me during her vacation, I had been looking forward to cooking it with her. I was like a little kid with a new toy while I was cooking and plating the food. It is always fun to make fancy dishes that you can plate nicely. This recipe has a LOT of flavors in it, but my friend and I decided that the cucumber relish really isn’t very necessary and it would probably have been better without it. The eggplant salsa was very unique, but really good!

Banana Bread

2 Loaves

  • 3 cups rotten bananas, mashed
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup nonfat yogurt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • cinnamon sugar, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375° and grease 2 metal loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, combine banana, eggs, yogurt and sugar.
  3. In a small bowl, combine remaining dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated.
  4. Divide batter between 2 loaf pans. (If desired, sprinkle top with cinnamon-sugar.)
  5. Bake until toothpick comes out clean (about 45-50 minutes)
  6. Remove from oven and let cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan. If not serving immediately, wrap in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator or freeze up to 6 months.

Note: If you want to make zucchini bread, just substitute the 3 cups of bananas for 3 cups shredded zucchini.
