Calling all FOODIES

Happy Monday!

I have a recipe to share that is really outstanding. I went to a friend's house this weekend (just to say hi) and she MADE me try her fish recipe because she knows how much I like spice.
 
So I did. (And ended up eating the entire thing even though I wasn't hungry!)
 
The best part? It's from Weight Watchers.
 
They have great recipes and  I found out that Laaloosh is where you can get them.

This recipe calls for salmon, but my friend said it's just as good with tilapia too!

Chili Glazed Salmon with Siracha Cream Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ lbs salmon, cut into 6 fillets
  • 1/3 cup chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 ½ tbsp Siracha sauce
  • 1 tbsp reduced fat mayonnaise or Vegenaise (skipped--not needed)
  • 1/4 cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup scallions, diced

Instructions

  1. To make chili glaze for the salmon, combine chili sauce, soy sauce, ginger, brown sugar, and 3 garlic cloves. Mix well.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or parchment paper, and spray with an olive oil mister or non-fat cooking spray.
  3. Place salmon on baking sheet, and spoon glaze evenly over each fillet. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  4. While salmon is marinating, make Siracha cream sauce by combining yogurt, mayo, Siracha, lemon juice, salt and remaining garlic clove. Mix well and set aside.
  5. Preheat broiler, and spoon any marinade remaining on baking sheet over salmon fillets. Broil salmon without turning until cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes, depending on thickness of fillet.
  6. Serve each salmon fillet with a drizzle of the Siracha cream sauce and garnish with green onions.


Delicious! Lo- cal. And great for summer!

I had never heard of Laaloosh before, but I'm going to check out more of their site!

***Also, a quick note: the lovely ladies over at Writing 4 Two will have me for their "Friday Feature" this Friday. I'll be hosting a giveaway of KISSING KENDALL so I hope you can stop by!

Have a great week! And Happy Earth Day!

Have you heard of Laaloosh before?

Haven't heard of Laaloosh. Bookmarked it for future research. lol.

Holy...yum. Now I'm craving Salmon. Thanks a lot!!

My MIL told me to try putting mandarin oranges on them with the soy sauce, oil, and seasoning and wrap them up in tinfoil to bake them.

Sounds like I'm going to be trying a lot of different Salmon dishes this month!

This sounds like a great recipe. I'm always look for tasty ways where I can get my omega-3 fatty acids, supposedly the "good" fats.
