^ That's a nice-looking salmon dish, I also enjoy entirely oven-cooked meals
Usual Chinese method for cooking bitter melon is to stir fry/braise it with a black bean sauce. If you're looking to reduce the bitterness, you can chop it up into desired shape, then sprinkle a good amount of salt on it to draw out some of the bitter juice letting that sit in a colander, then rinse off the salt. Though the bitter juices is probably where much of the nutrients are.
Or boil it in water for a 30 seconds to draw out the bitter taste. I love stir fry bitter melon, chicken, with black bean sauce.
I'm going to look into that, medicinal foods really interest me. I have heard of bitter melon but that's about it.
I made another pizza tonight, however it's my first "baby bok choy pie":
Also includes Spanish onions, goat feta, and kalamatas.
