Combee Honey and Orange Salmon

Combee is a small insectoid Pokémon that resembles three pieces of orange, hexagonal honeycomb stuck together. Each hexagon has a round yellow face. The bottom-center face is the main thinker of the three, and it is also the only one “bee” to have a full abdomen. The top two hexagons have a single antenna and a wing connected to an orange-colored joint. A female Combee has a red spot on the forehead of its lower face.

Combee can fly with its two wings as long as the top two “bees” co-ordinate their flapping. It is mostly sociable among their own kind. It is generally harmless; it flees when threatened. A Combee will almost always be found collecting honey wherever they can. The gathered honey has multiple purposes, though it’s usually consumed. When it is not gathering honey, it sleeps or protects its queen. The former is done by creating a hive along with other Combee, locking together into a “wall” to feel safe in larger numbers. It is very suggestible and will never defy the orders of its queen. When a Vespiquen feels threatened, its subject Combee will not think twice about risking its life to protect the queen, then attacking and even killing the threat in an aggressive manner. It commonly lives in caves and hollow trees of forests and other natural, secluded areas with their queen.

Ingredients

2 tbsp Butter
2 Salmon Fillets
100ml Orange Juice
3 tbsp Honey
2 tbsp Light Soy Sauce
2 Garlic Cloves (crushed)
Cooked Baby Potatoes
Salad to serve

For some reason I love Combee. It falls into that category that Pokemon can have multiple faces and different personalities for each one – but can also evolve into Pokemon with less faces which is confusing. Other examples: Exeggcute, Cherubi. There are other Pokemon that when they evolve have more faces, Deino, Klink, Magnemite, Vanillish, Koffing, Slowpoke, Doduo and Diglett. Some of these are because multiple have combined together, but others split their personalities across each head.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1
Heat the butter in a skillet over medium to high heat. Sear the salmon skin side up for 4 minutes, then flip and sear for 2 minutes.
Step 2
Pour in the orange juice and allow to reduce to half. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant. Move the salmon to the side of the pan and then add the honey and soy sauce and stir to combine the sauce.
Step 3
Bring to a simmer then add the potatoes. Stir the sauce over the salmon and potatoes to evenly coat. Remove from heat once the salmon is cooked to your liking.
Step 4
Season with salt and pepper to your tastes. Serve the salmon and potatoes over a bed of salad then pour over the remaining sauce over the dishes.
