I was watching Simply Delicioso on the Food Network. And she made this great looking chimmichuri sauce for her flank steak. I had to make it! It looked so yummy. So, while planning the week’s meals I decided I was going to make steak & salmon skewers (trying to incorporate more lean meat into my diet). And to dress it up, I decided to make the chimmichurri sauce for the steak and a ginger-soy sauce for the salmon. These were delicious! My whole family agrees that I couldn’t have done better. Seriously, these are really simple to make and very, very yummy!
Steak & Salmon Sauces Proved their Worth!
