One World, One Movie Proudly Presents “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”

Today’s the day the entire world watches a single movie, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. May we all enjoy it. May the mere act of watching it and perhaps talking about it bringSalmonFish2 about world peace and a shared Nobel Peace Prize for all of us. Or maybe we’ll just enjoy the movie, but that’s not bad either. In honor of this great event I’ll be making salmon with dill. It’ll be my contribution to Yemeni, or Yemenite, cuisine.

And now a few quotes to inspire you to greatness:

“A trout in the pot is better than a salmon in the sea.”salmonFish5
– Irish saying.

“You piss me off, Salmon… You’re too expensive in restaurants.”
– Eddie Izzard

Now enjoy the movie.

One World, One Movie: “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” (Update)

One World, One Movie has so far failed utterly to get the Yemeni, or Yemenite, government to participate in this event for world peace and cinematic unity. Reasons for this run from not contacting them to … not contacting them. But  you, dear reader, can help help the world on July 12 by watching “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.”

“I think we’re going to the moon because it’s in the nature of the human being to face challenges. It’s by the nature of his deep inner soul… we’re required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream.”

– Neil Armstrong

Join us, join the event on Facebook,

Let the picture below inspire everyone to greatness.










(By the way, the weather in Yemen is often warmer than is the case in this photo.)

Yemeni Chicken Soup

Yemeni Soup



3 chicken breasts
2 carrots
4 brown potatoes
2 cloves garlic
1 tomato
2 tablespoons hawaij (See recipe for hawaij)
1/2 bunch fresh parsley or 1 cup
1 quart chicken stock


Cut chicken breasts into 1″ cubes. Peel and cut carrots into 1″ wide slices. Peel and cut potatoes into eighths. Dice garlic cloves. Dice tomatoes.

Add all ingredients to large pot. Cook on high heat until soup boils, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes. Stir occasionally.


1) Hawaij is quite close to being spelled Hawaii.

2) Hawaii is the 50th state admitted to the United States of America.

3) In 1950, the New York Yankees swept the Philadelphia Phillies in the World Series.

4) The Philly cheesesteak is a deservedly famous sandwich.

5) Vampires are killed by a stake to the heart.

6) Garlic, though, keeps vampires at bay while being much smaller and cheaper.

7) There is no garlic in my recipe for hawaij. So there is none is this soup.

8) You won’t be able to ward off vampires by showing it this soup. Better to throw the soup at the vampire. Look for your stake and hammer while it’s wiping off its face. Good luck.
