Quick Meal Ideas for Writers #2

MOOD STATUS: "Bleh". Feeling yucky since Sunday. No real symptoms--headaches and tired a lot. Just...BLEH.

This is what I had for dinner last night--and last Sunday. What can I say? I love salmon and this recipe is so easy and tasty. (PS. the kiddo gobbles it up)

And the best part? It takes like 10 minutes.

Ginger-glazed Salmon

1Tbsp dark brown sugar (although I have used light brown sugar and it's just as good)
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground ginger
4 salmon fillets ( 1/2 inch thickness and about 1 1/2 lbs total)

Preheat broiler to high.
Line broiler pan with tin foil and spray a little cooking spray on top.

Mix sugar, mustard, soy sauce, and ginger in bowl. Make little shallow cuts across salmon (this will speed up cooking and let the glaze settle into the fish) Brush salmon with brown sugar mixture and broil about 5 or 6 minutes or until fish is flaky and done.

**note: sometimes my fish is thick, so I broil a few minutes without the glaze then brush glaze and broil the 5 minutes on top of that so it's done**

Serve with a side of rice and a nice salad.

Oh, you're welcome. :)

Now go write and have a nice weekend!

Oh I like me salmon with brown sugar and tons of butter. ;)

Don't know why I just wrote that like a leprechaun.

Happy Weekend.

I love salmon, but I've never tried it with a sweet glaze. Sounds good.

Terri Tiffany said...

So I had to slide through this one since I HATE salmon but wanted to say good morning and have a good weekend. Hope you get to feeling better!

I am always looking for new ways to prep salmon.

My salmon mojo is very low.

Thanks!

Oh thank you, thank you. The more quick recipes, the better. Cooking is such a time drain on writing ;)

Happy Friday ...

YUM! Salmon sounds really good too. Great. Now I'm going to be craving it all day, and all I brought to work with me was a hot pocket.

Jennifer, sorry you are feeling yucky. Hope God turns that around.

LOVE salmon and usually serve with a wonderfully nutty wild rice mix.

Blessings, dear one.

Thanks for the recipe. I also love salmon. I had it last night with a slightly different sauce. mmm.

Kimberly Franklin said...

Replace the fish with chicken and that sounds like a winner!! ;)

Georgiana said...

Admittedly, I don't eat fish like I should, but I'll bet this is good with chicken. And I'm a recent convert to the tastiness of ginger. Yum!

Jemi Fraser said...

Sounds awesome - thanks!! :)

Diane said...

I am not a ginger lover, but love things that take 10 minutes! Hope you get out of the blah's soon. :O)

I miss cooking. We've had construction going on for a month now and the kitchen might as well be in Europe. The kids don't mind all the take out though. ;)

Tory said...

Hi, Jennifer! I love the recipe and anything that the kiddos like is good enough for me. I'd love for you to check out my blog @ www.toryminus.blogspot.com (yes, I'm a newbie). :-) Have a great weekend! Tory
