Friday Chez Maison Batty

This week's (well, last week's) blog stalking assignment involves dinner at our homes. In this installment, I will be talking about tonight's dinner: Salmon with soy maple syrup glaze, green beans, and bread.

Ever since my husband got really, really sick last summer, I've been fasting on Fridays. This means no animal products -- except fish. This particular dish is commonly referred to as "yummy fish".

You start with a pound (more or less) of fresh salmon fillet with the skin still on, like so:


Then, you make the glaze by boiling down 1/4 cup of natural maple syrup and 1/4 cup of soy sauce. We use less sodium Tamari sauce. It is yummy!
In the background, you can see the green beans. Just boiled beans, nothing special, the perfect addition.

You divide the glaze, about 2/3 and 1/3. The larger amount gets brushed onto the fish in 3 stages: first, generously brush glaze all over fish, let stand 5 minutes. Brush again, then bake at 450 F for about 10 minutes. Take out and brush again, broil for 5 minutes. Here's the salmon fresh from the broiler:


Brush again with 1/3 of glaze you saved in a separate bowl, serve with yummy sides like beans and bread.


By the way, I don't really like fish all that much. The glaze gives it a really nice flavor. It tastes less fishy, smells less fishy, and my husband really loves this dish. I like it too. For fish, it's pretty darn good!

I posted a comment, but firefox ate it. The moral of this story is that foxes like salmon.

Salmon is a great fish :) I used to (when I ate meat) make mustard sauce by adding mustard and lemon juice to the pan after frying the salmon. It was good.
