AKA, what I made last night.
Last night I made my first recipe from Giada’s new cookbook. I had gone grocery shopping on Sunday and decided that I would make Balsamic Glazed Salmon for my man friend. I had bible study that evening until 9pm, so I set out all my ingredients (it wasn’t that many!) and the recipe before I left for that so that I could start cooking immediately when I got home.
The actual preparation was quite simple. The fish got olive oil, salt and pepper and then cooked for about 15 minutes on 400. While that was happening, everything else went into a pot on the stove to simmer and make the glaze. Once I got the glaze going, I quickly made brown rice and sugar snapped peas to go with the salmon. Dinner was on the table in about 15 minutes.
At first, I felt the glaze was a little vinegar heavy, but I actually started to really enjoy it after a few bites. My man friend loved it and insisted it was really good. I agreed. And it was a healthy dinner, which was great considering it was pretty late when we actually sat down to eat. Yay for being back on track with my cooking!
