Something fishy's going on

We are on a salmon kick lately in our family. Healthy stuff, you know. It's also delicious, and there are so many ways to cook it. This recipe has an Asian twist. We really liked it. The other nice thing about salmon is that it takes mere minutes to cook.


1 lb. salmon fillets
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. oil
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. ground ginger

Toss salmon and sauce ingredients in plastic bag. Refrigerate for as long as possible so flavors can soak in. Place bag contents in frying pan, cover and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Uncover and cook salmon for about two minutes on each side, or until salmon flakes easily. Discard liquid. Cook just a little on each side in dry pan until salmon is browned and glazed.

Sorry, that above comment was from me, but I was logged in under Amy on accident. Anyway...

We had salmon for dinner tonight! I rubbed the salmon with some olive oil, fresh minced garlic, salt, pepper and dill. Then I put the salmon filets on their own large piece of tinfoil. I placed three lemon slices on top of the salmon. Then, cut up one summer squash and one small zucchini, coated them with olive oil and salt and pepper and then piled that on top of the salmon. I wrapped it all up like a hobo dinner, leaving some room for the steam and put it in the oven at 350 for about 25 minutes. I served it with brown rice and it was delicious. I also loved it because there was really no clean up since I cooked it in the tinfoil packets. Try it and see if you like it!

I'm Drooling! I too have been on a fish kick lately. My family doesn't like it but I'm always looking for ways to spice up my piece of fish while I cook them a boring chicken breast.
