Yep. You read the title right. Salmon. On MY blog. I'll give you all a moment to pick your jaw up off the floor! :)
I don't eat fish. Honestly, I don't eat seafood at all. I just don't care for it. Sure, I'll eat a tuna fish sandwich every once in a blue moon but that is where it ends. So why the sudden change? Nathan LOVES seafood. He would eat it all the time if he could. After almost 8 years of marriage, I decided it would be nice if I actually made him fish. Plus, Anya will inhale salmon. She says she likes salmon more than steak which is saying a lot for my carnivorous child!
I still don't eat much of it. I will take a bite or two of the fish and load up on the side dishes. I figure I can eat a meal that I don't care for all that much once a week in order to give my family something they really enjoy.
I did like this salmon. Not enough to eat more than a few bites, but it was good. Nathan and Anya (and Eric, too!) loved it and there wasn't any leftover. I think that is a good review!
Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon
Taste of Home
1 TBSP brown sugar
2 tsp butter
1 tsp honey
1 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP Dijon mustard
1 TBSP soy sauce
1/2 to 3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 salmon fillet (2 1/2 lbs)
In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook and stir the brown sugar, butter, and honey until melted. Remove from heat; whisk in the oil, mustard, soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Cool for 5 minutes.
Place salmon in a large foil lined baking pan; brush with brown sugar mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork.
*I cooked it at 400 for about 10 minutes per the suggestion of a friend. (Thanks, Monica!)*
