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.)

Are You Rethinking a Dance Career Due to COVID-19? Read This Advice First

Olivia Duran started ballet when she was 3 years old, and it was love at first plié. From there, "I just kept going," she recently recalled over the phone, "and that was that!" Soon, she found herself at Elmhurst Ballet School, the prestigious training program affiliated with England's Birmingham Royal Ballet. She completed the school's full eight years of coursework, but as she neared the professional world, Duran felt more drawn to life as a cruise performer than as a traditional ballerina. Her final year was marked by audition circuits in London, which eventually landed her a contract with MSC Cruises.

After graduation in 2019, Duran returned home to Hampshire, UK, for a few short months to wait for the contract to begin—but with the onset of COVID-19, cruise ships stopped sailing and the job never came to fruition. Her stay at home became far more indefinite, and she was left to consider a life without dance at its center.
