Before I share a delicious salmon recipe, what do you think of the new layout? Are the colors too repulsive? I like the pink and blue together, but I'm not sure if my readers will like it. Be honest.
Anyway, I made a nice dinner last week. Then again, any dinner is nice when it involves fresh salmon. It goes on sale about every few weeks, so I wait until then. The simplest way to prepare this is to brush some sort of marinade or glaze on top and broil or bake. Depending on what you use, it could be considered a healthy meal as well. I used a brown sugar and ginger glaze, topped with sesame seeds.
If you use a broiler, make sure the salmon is completely thawed and the broiler is preheated. If not, your fish will take longer than indicated. Also, make sure the middle is done as well because the edges finish a lot sooner. The recipe said to broil 5 minutes, but mine took about 10-15 since it was still semi-frozen. Also, top with sesame seeds during the last few minutes so they become a little toasted.
If you bake it, bake it for about 20 minutes at 350F. The salmon is done when it flakes easily. Make sure the middle is done as well.
Brown Sugar and Ginger Glazed Salmon
1 salmon fillet (about 1/2 lb.)
1/4 tsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp Dijon mustard (I used yellow)
1/4 tsp soy sauce
1/16 tsp ground ginger
1. Preheat broiler. Line a cookie sheet with greased foil. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Place skin side up on cookie sheet. Broil for 3 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, combine brown sugar, mustard, soy sauce, and ginger. After 3 minutes, flip salmon so it's skin side down. Brush with glaze. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Broil for another 2 minutes or until salmon flakes all over.
Makes 1 serving.
