Miami City Ballet Principal Jennifer Kronenberg's Asian Garlic Salmon Recipe

For most dancers, when it comes to cooking, they want three things: something easy, something healthy, something tasty. Miami City Ballet principal Jennifer Kronenberg has just the thing: asian garlic salmon. It's her go-to recipe for weekday dinners. “My husband, MCB principal Carlos Guerra, and I love this recipe—it's super tasty," says Kronenberg. “And it's perfect for preparing after a long rehearsal day."


Asian Garlic Salmon

Ingredients:

2–4 boneless salmon filets

3 tbsp Chinese hoisin sauce

2 tsp fresh ginger (minced or paste)

2 tsp vegetable or canola oil

3 tsp minced garlic

2 scallions (chopped)

1. Heat broiler and line a baking pan with non-stick aluminum foil.

2. Lightly whisk hoisin sauce, ginger and garlic in a small bowl.

3. Brush baking pan with oil, then place salmon filets skin side down. Spoon hoisin mixture evenly on filets and spread to coat thoroughly.

4. Broil for about 8 to 10 minutes depending on thickness, until the fish is opaque through the center and flakes easily with a fork.

5. When done cooking, garnish with chopped scallions to taste. Serve atop a bed of steamed bok choy, spinach or other leafy green. (Kronenberg and Guerra like it with a side of brown rice or quinoa.)

Romantic ballets were her calling card throughout her career. In 1987, when Fracci was 51, she was featured in a television special, dancing reconstructed 19th-century ballets in the style of historical ballerinas. In this clip of La Esmeralda from the program, Fracci and her partner Stephen Jefferies, a former principal at The Royal Ballet, deliver an extraordinary performance, capturing the verve and spirit of their characters.

Ask Amy: How Can I Make the Most of Performance Opportunities in a Pandemic?

My school is connected to a professional company that operates on a show-to-show basis. Students can audition for company performances when they're 15. My 15th birthday is in February, and I think that our directors are choosing people to participate in virtual performances based off of whether they have performed with the company before. This was supposed to be my big first year with the company, but COVID-19 has changed that. How do I make it known that I want to participate? Do you think I should wait until things are more normal? —Lila
