But one dark spot is that I have to be honest, we are having a heck of a time with getting the shipping part of it right. I’m actually working on a blog post for the Little Hill Sugarworks blog about it, since it’s a bit off topic from this maple tahini roasted salmon in most ways.

Ahem, not that a fear of being off topic has ever stopped me before.

But, the part of the story that you guys will appreciate is about the phenomenon of the missing sharpies. Does this happen to you?

Last week while I was supposed to be doing something totally different, I found myself racing around like a maniac looking for a sharpie. I was just going to take five minutes to quickly sign a cookbook and package it up to ship out. But 15 minutes later, I’ve torn the house apart and I couldn’t find a single one anywhere in the whole house. Not one.

Guys, I’m convinced that all the water bottles, sharpies and single socks are somewhere partying in a speakeasy for lost household items.

Meanwhile, I should really be in the kitchen working on my spring line-up.

Thankfully this salmon recipe was so easy to work on. It’s like this, whisk some stuff together. Let the salmon marinate in it for 30 minutes. Roast it. Done. Boom. You are a rockstar because this salmon is sublime.

The silky, rich fish with the nutty tasting tahini, and sweet gingery sauce is to die for! It’s enough to make you feel guilty that it is so easy. So if you’re serving it to company you may have to pretend that it was much harder.
