Citrus Salmon and Watermelon Popsicles

I’m not going to type at you much in this post because I believe these photos pretty much speak for themselves. FlavorPrint is a very cool service provided by McCormick that “gets you every time.” Having spent about 10 enjoyable minutes looking at beautiful photos of food and flavors, then rating them as to my family’s taste preferences, I can attest that McCormick does in fact “get” me.

In fact, this Citrus Salmon with Orange Relish recipe makes me positively giddy. I chose it because I don’t fix seafood nearly often enough for dinner (though I’m trying to expand our horizons) and I am not exaggerating when I say it’s the best salmon I’ve ever fixed for us at home.  This recipe alone has sold me on McCormick FlavorPrint! According to FlavorPrint, this recipe fits me/my family because of its “citrusy” and “garlic onionish” flavors (94% match). They were spot-on with this choice and I am excited to try recipes in the future like,Dukkah Crusted Fish with Broccoli and Red Lentils (which hits our “citrusy” and “warm brown spice” FlavorPrint) and Salmon Tostada with Chamoy and Charred Corn Relish (which hits our “garlic onionish” and “sour” FlavorPrint), just to name a few. Now I know where to go first for seafood recipes to continue expanding my family’s dinner horizons.

I served this fabulously fresh salmon with a side of corn and to complete this perfect-for-summer dinner, I chose these Watermelon Cooler Frozen Pops for our dessert from McCormick’s Summer Dessert Recipes category, under their website’s Recipe tab. These pops hit the “sweet” and “fruity” segments of our FlavorPrint (67% match) and were a big hit with our kids. I was especially pleased about this because the primary ingredient in these pops is fresh watermelon. Since I don’t own popsicle molds, I poured the liquid into small paper cups and used simple wooden popsicle sticks I decorated myself with washi tape to freeze. The great thing about buying plain wooden sticks is you can decorate them inexpensively to fit the occasion!

I really had a great time with this post and I’m thankful McCormick contacted me so that I can share what a helpful tool FlavorPrint is for busy families. Once the profile is created, a quick search of recipes complete with colorful photos that “get you” is just a few clicks away.

I invite you to click on each of my photos below to be taken to the recipes and print them from McCormick’s website. In this unusual case, I did not need to change a thing about either recipe!
