Yummy!

Today was a yummy day! We had some friends from Canada come to visit and I decided to treat 'em to a good meal while they were over. Think Teriyaki Grilled Salmon, Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce, Steamed Broccoli, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and to top it all off some delicious chocolate covered Strawberries... yum! Since it is such an amazing recipe, thought I would share it!

TERIYAKI GRILLED SALMON

-- Take your boneless, skinless Salmon Fillet(s) and rinse off in cool water

-- Pat dry with paper towels and rub on grated Ginger (I usually just have the sushi Ginger on hand so I just chop it up with my Pampered Chef Chopper!); doing this will help calm the fishy flavor a bit.

-- Place on a piece of foil (large enough to fold ) and sprinkle with Brown Sugar and Kikkoman/Yoshida's Teriyaki Glaze on both sides.

-- Fold the foil over and roll the edges of the foil up to help keep the glaze and juices from finding their way out.

-- Grill on the BBQ or Foreman Grill until done and enjoy! (I use my Foreman Grill because it is so quick! About 2 minutes per 1/2" of the fillet-- so usually about 4 minutes)



BAKED ASPARAGUS WITH BALSAMIC BUTTER SAUCE

Wash Asparagus and lay flat on a cookie sheet (best for the sheet to have edges to catch juices). Spray with PAM or Butter and Sprinkle with Sea Salt or Garlic Salt. Bake in the oven on 400 for 12 minutes.

SAUCE:

2 Tbs. Butter
1 Tbs. Soy Sauce
1 Tsp. Balsamic Vinegar

Melt Butter in small sauce pot, add Soy Sauce and Balsamic Vinegar and bring to a simmer. Drizzle over the top of the Asparagus and/or fish and/or broccoli :)

Amy, I tried putting your new badge on my blog as a gadget but it does not have the html code so it did not work. Was hoping to be the first to link it, but I did link your website to your name under the badge. I hope that this is ok or is there something else I need to do? Let me know..Iona

I put your badge up and it works, but I need help resizing it - it cut off the edge of it, and I don't want to stick it in the middle of the blog. Any ideas?
