Fresh Fish

If you haven't checked out my giveaway (below) you have until 10 pm (eastern time) to enter!

We had a pretty low-key weekend here. The weather was PERFECT so Adrian and I made it to the park several times. If this past week is any indication of what summer will be like, we are going to be the 'tannest' kids on the block!
 Jeff went fishing one morning with my cousin Tom and brought a small Coho Salmon home. I broiled it using my Mom's recipe for Asian glazed salmon. Oh yum! I wish I could eat it again right now! Even Adrian loved it!

Here is that salmon recipe if you're interested (it's also in the Magnolia Lane cookbook):

Asian Glazed Salmon

1/3 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp Dijon-style mustard
1 lb fresh or frozen salmon fillet, 1-inch thick
3 Tbsp rice vinegar

For glaze, in a small bowl, combine brown sugar, soy sauce, and mustard. Set aside 2 tablespoons of brown sugar mixture for sauce. Thaw salmon, if frozen. Remove skin from salmon, if present. Rinse salmon, pat dry. Place fish on the greased unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 inches from heat for 8-12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, carefully turning once halfway through broiling time and brushing with glaze during the last 2-3 minutes of broiling time. For sauce, stir together rice vinegar and reserved brown sugar mixture until sugar is dissolved. Serve with salmon.

Jeff is planning to go fishing again tomorrow so I'm crossing my fingers that he catches a few more!
