Wasabi Salmon with Bok Choy, Purple Cabbage and Oyster Mushrooms

Salmon is one of my favorite fishes. For this recipe, I wanted to make something healthy and this recipe definitely fits that bill.

I highly recommend using wild-caught Pacific salmon. Beware of Atlantic salmon — it’s most likely farmed-raised.


  • 2 8-oz. skinless salmon fillets
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. wasabi paste (or sauce)
  • 2 1-inch pieces of ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • Bok Choy, Purple Cabbage and Oyster Mushrooms

  • 3 garlic cloves, finely grated
  • 1 lb. baby bok choy
  • 2 cups shredded purple cabbage
  • 1/2 cup oyster mushrooms, stemmed
  • 2 TBSP olive oil (plus more for greasing baking pan)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 450F and heat a large baking sheet for 15 minutes.
  2. Wasabi Mayo

  3. In a small bowl, mix mayo and wasabi paste then stir in half of ginger and half of garlic. Set aside.
  4. Season salmon with salt and pepper.
  5. Place bok choy, purple cabbage and oyster mushrooms…

The Political Gourmet: Bourbon Steak

By Jueseppi B.







This was borrowed from the blog: “The Northwest Meets Southwest Infusion Cuisine”……….

“My most decadent signature dish for carnivore fly-fishing clients is loaded with so much trans-fat and cholesterol I can feel my arteries hardening just making it. Really though, if eaten as a rare treat, your heart will not come to a dead stop with this one-time indulgence.

I start with aged filets of Montana beef tenderloin which I season liberally with spicy steak rub.  I let the steaks warm up to room temperature so the salt and brown sugar in the rub can work their magic on the meat proteins. I then wrap the entire filet in thin cut bacon (the cheap stuff).  Thin bacon wraps around, and clings to a lukewarm steak like a second skin. If the bacon is still not willing to adhere to becoming part of this match made in hog heaven, a thirty second zap in a microwave will do the trick.

The bacon wrap not only works to lock in the mouth-watering meat juices, it also seals the southwestern spices in and imparts a smoky flavor into every succulent bite. I pan fry the steaks over medium to medium high heat until the bacon is brown and crisp.  This puts the meat at about 140 degrees.

I remove the steaks to rest, while I de-glaze the pan with bourbon, ignite the fumes to burn off any alcohol, and then add un-salted butter, and heavy cream along with a little Mexican oregano.  I finish by adding some of my hot steak rub to the rich sauce, and simmer it down to a piquant gravy to finish off an entree that can only be described as utter ecstasy.”


I have cooked this dish before, and it is delicious. I highly suggest this be prepared for a very romantic evening with that very special someone, whom you have in your kitchen helping you cook this most magnificent meal. I’d serve some excellently grilled asparagus spears along with a cold pasta salad. Some warm garlic bread as well on the side. I’d choose a nice bottle of Merlot.

Give this one a try and let me know how it turns out. Good Cooking & Good Eating.

UPDATE: According to ThinkProgress, 12 advertisers have dropped Rush Limbaugh, including AOL, in light of his comments AND the outrage that followed.

Rush Limbaugh Cartoon: The face of the Republican Party

Rush Limbaugh cartoon by Ian D. Via Wikipedia.

Let’s be clear: they are not pulling away because of what he said; he has said much worse things about other women, other groups and he is not the only one who does it. Though the advertisers are being hypocritical, I for one I’m glad that this might signal the demise of Rush Limbaugh.

So let’s not all pretend like this is the first time in recent history that either Limbaugh or many, many others have insulted women in misogynistic and self-entitled male-privilege ways. Even Limbaugh himself spoke about this:

“Talk about a double standard,” Limbaugh said. “Rappers can say anything they want about women. It’s called art. And they win awards.”

Conservative radio and talk shows are riddled with misogyny

The Soapbox ~ Are You Serious?

By Jueseppi B.





Rush Limbaugh…….
He lost a few sponsors, after calling Georgetown University student Ms. Sandra Fluke a slut & a prostitute, because she wants The Affordable Health Care Act to cover women’s contraceptive and birth control. He followed that up with suggestions this young woman post her sexual relationship online so he, and all the other TeaTardedRepubliCANT males, can watch. Since they have penile dysfunction troubles, this may enhance their male performance issues.

Rush Limbaugh issued an apology today to the Georgetown law student he branded a “slut” in three days of attacks, after she argued to Congress that the expense for her birth control should be covered by her employer’s health care plan.

He said he “did not mean a personal attack” on Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown student.

“My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation”

What this attempt at an apology says to my ears is very clear. Limbaugh is not sorry he called this young woman a slut or prostitute, Limbaugh is sorry he choose THOSE words to call this young woman a slut and a prostitute. Limbaugh is more sorry that 8 major sponsors pulled advertisement from his radio show. THAT is truly what Limbaugh is sorry about.



Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu & President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad………
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is visiting the White House today to beg for America to get involved in threatening Iran. Israel is concerned Iran might fix themselves up with a nuclear weapon. Israel has nuclear capabilities but does not want Iran to have nuclear capabilities.

This will piss off the “guns & guts” crowd but who care? I do not think America should get involved in this pissing contest between Israel & Iran. America just ended a 9 year, 8 month war in Iraq, and just brought our troops home. We should NOT be attacking Iran based on Israel’s imagined fear of Iran’s nuclear capabilities. America needs to focus on issues here at home, and besides, who died and appointed America the police force of the globe?

I have a solution for Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu & President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Give each leader a Louisville SluggerLock them in a room. The last man standing wins. This way innocent American lives are not wasted on a male pissing contest. As my grandfather used to say, “never get involved in a pissing contest with a skunk”. No more wars for America.



NFL Football Hit Squads……..
New Orleans Saints players and at least one assistant coach maintained a bounty program the last three seasons for inflicting game-ending injuries on opposing players, including Brett Favre and Kurt Warner — a pool that reached as much as $50,000 and paid specific amounts for ”cart-offs” and ”knockouts,” the NFL said Friday.

The report said the pool amounts reached their height in 2009, the year the Saints won the Super Bowl. The league said between 22 and 27 defensive players were involved in the program and that it was administered by defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, with the knowledge of coach Sean Payton.

It has also been determined this is not just confined to the New Orleans Saints. Payoffs included $1,500 for a ”knockout” and $1,000 for a ”cart-off,” with payouts doubling or tripling during the playoffs.

If you are naive enough to think this is just confined to the NFL…wake up. Football is a very violent sport, the focus of the game is to hit players on the opposing team, knock them down and keep them from continuing the play. To assume a bunch of church ladies are doing the hitting is asinine. In America it is not how you play the game, it’s winning the game. Period. ESPN has it’s best plays contain the hardest hits, not the softest hits.

Replays do not show a player helping another player up off the turf. Replays show a player hitting another player so hard that the sound of the impact resonates through all the fan noise in the stadium. Now you want to act all surprised that NFL coaches are paying a bonus for their players to hit extra hard? Extra vicious? In a vicious sport?


In The Balcony Movie Review: A Thousand Words; Eddie Murphy

By Jueseppi B.





A Thousand Words is an upcoming comedy-drama film starring Eddie Murphy and directed by Norbit and Meet Dave director Brian Robbins. It will be released in theaters on March 9, 2012. Please tell me Eddie didn’t return to the same guy who directed his  “mega hits” ( I’m using sarcasm here) Norbit AND Meet Dave? Lord help us.




Jack McCall, a fast-talking Hollywood literary agent (Murphy), fibs to New Age guru Dr. Sinja (Curtis). In response, Dr. Sinja curses McCall with a magical Bodhi tree in his own backyard. The tree has 1,000 leaves and every word McCall says causes a leaf to drop; the curse dooms McCall to perish when the last leaf falls.

Ok, when a plot is 2 and a half lines long….you know you are in trouble.





A Thousand Words was originally filmed in 2008, to be released in 2009, but was repeatedly delayed after being caught up in the separation of DreamWorks Pictures from Paramount Pictures and Viacom. During an interview for Fred: The Movie, director Brian Robbins stated that the film would be released in 2011. Reshoots were done on the film early in 2011.

The film was then given a January 2012 release, but after Murphy was announced as Oscar host (he has since stepped down), the film was given a release of March 23, 2012; this was later pushed to April 20, 2012. A Thousand Words will now open in American theaters on its official release date of March 9, 2012. I am thinking Mr. Murphy should have kept his day job of hosting the Oscars.

I won’t be seeing this because every single review is bad. I don’t usually listen to critics, but based on Mr. Murphy’s recent movie choices and his performances in those roles, I’m gonna take a pass. If you do spend $10.50 to see this movie, please let me know how good it was.
