I'll need to think about what recipes I try from the book - cos so many of the recipes on line have too much added sweet stuff. I don't like sweet stuff, to any great extent, and I have a type 2 diabetic husband. So I need to be a bit careful about what I'll try.
Salmon for DH and me is best put on a microwaveable plate with plenty of lemon or lime juice, and cooked in the microwave for 2 or 3 minutes (and maybe turned and given another minute).
I just got done eating the Maple Glazed Roasted Salmon (pg 226) for dinner tonight. It was quite easy to make when I got home from work. Had the marinade mixed up in about 3 minutes and while it was marinating, I was able to get some other things done. Even my dad who is a very picky eater pronounced it, not bad which from him is high praise indeed. (okay I did have to make his salmon separate but there was some of the maple glazed left and he tasted it).
I do think if I made it again, I'd probably halve the marinade because I wound up pouring most of it away. The maple syrup gave the salmon just a hint of sweetness with the little bit of salty from the soy sauce. Honestly, I could probably eat this salmon every single night for supper!
All in all, I would give this recipe a 5 out of 5.
Rewards to look forward to:
5 pounds--buy self nail polish and give self manicure. DONE!
10 pounds (approx 5% body weight)--buy new skin care stuff I've been wanting to try.
10% body weight (20 pounds)--spa treatment at a spa.
25 pounds--I think I'll need some new clothes by then (or take stuff to be tailored)
