It’s no secret that I love salmon. I seriously could eat it every day. YUM. Pierre gets tired of eating the same flavors or textures, so strange. I, on the other hand, can play out a flavor like there’s no tomorrow. A perfect example of that is my favorite spice trio.
Well, I haven’t made salmon in a while and honestly, I don’t like the fish here in the Midwest. I mean, where does it come from? I’ve lived close to the ocean all my life so seeing farm raised fish at the store really turns me off. Fresh caught fish is more expensive and tastes better but they don’t have it every time I go to my grocery store. What I’m saying is, fish isn’t on the menu too often these days. I was pumped when I found fresh caught salmon at the store this week! WIN!
Soy Glazed Salmon
2 – 4oz pieces of salmon, skin removed
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp soy sauce
½ tsp toasted sesame oil
Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Place the salmon on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and bake for 10 minutes. Broil on high for 5 minutes or until brown and crisp on the edges.
While the salmon is cooking, add the remaining ingredients to a small sauce pan. Whisk and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.
Spoon over the salmon and devour.
Now that school is back in session, this is the perfect meal to throw together in a jiffy!
