Quick Pic: Pan-Seared Salmon

Stopped by my in-laws to see my son on the way to work (I’m a day sleeper and they were babysitting) and my Mother-in-law was pan searingĀ salmon for dinner. I realize salmon isn’t exactly “southern,” but the results were too pretty to not shoot and post.

I can confirm that they tasted as good as they look (she was gracious enough to send me off with a plate.

7-Up Recipe Book from 1953

Saw this on Retronaut and had to put it up for my readers. Too quirky not to pass on. Seriously, check out that dressing! Weird. (Not nearly as weird as 7-Up in milk, though.)

Some of these are old standards, like 7-Up cake & 7-Up gelatin. Familiar territory for most southerners (seen those on many, many potluck dessert tables.)

As previously noted, all credit to Retronaut for
all images. Check them out sometine. Lots and lots of historical photos.

Final thought:try subbing 7-Up for beer in a typical beer batter. Works great for fried desserts. Some fish as well (gotta spice it up to cut the sweetness though.)

My sister-in-law and her boyfriend made these over the summer. I don’t know who’s idea this was, but i’m going to ask for the recipe. They tasted better than they looked. Which says a lot, because they’re beautiful. I really wish I could make my food look, and taste, half as good as theirs.
