Hallelujah! I'm back at my computer after the wedding. Life as we knew it has almost returned. So I am glad to be joining our gracious hostess Michael for Foodie Friday. Beloved is happy not to be eating things that come in styrofoam or bags. But I confess; I am still tired! Enter the thirty-minute meal! Rachael Ray doesn't have a thing on me!
About a year and a half ago Beloved was diagnosed with Type ll diabetes. Since that time we have drastically changed our eating habits (and his exercise habits) and he has lost over sixty pounds! He is now svelte Beloved and has his diabetes under control. One of the things we eat more of is fish--all kinds. I love salmon; Beloved, not so much. This recipe is his favorite and it works for us both. He eats it on romaine; I eat it as an entree with sides.
Here is the way I make honey-glazed salmon. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees (don't worry, not long enough to heat up the kitchen!). Season the salmon with sea salt and place in a oven-proof dish flesh side up. Mix 1/2 cup honey, 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic. Drizzle this mixture over fish and roast for five minutes. Drizzle again! Roast about 3-5 minutes until salmon is firm when pressed at its thickest part. Top with your favorite dressing and eat!
This is how I prefer mine! I'm not a huge salad lover so I like a few carbs with mine! This salmon is easy enough for post-wedding Thursday night and delicious enough for company. These are twice-baked potatoes I am taking to our youngest son tomorrow. His birthday was Wednesday and he lives 3 1/2 hours from here. I think he could use a little pampering after all the festivities of the weekend ....he is the baby :). I can hardly wait to see what everbody has cooked up this week.
