It's suppertime bloggies !!!!!
Here is my contribution for today's "Food Week" recipe - Maple salmon with sweet spinach salad.
Salmon glaze :
Mix the following in a bowl until well blended.
2 tablespoon butter, room temperature
2 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoon mustard
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
Spread over whole salmon, salmon steaks, or salmon pieces in a baking pan. Cover pan with foil and bake in 350 degree oven until salmon flakes easily. I usually bake the salmon pieces and these take about 20-30 minutes.
Sweet Spinach Salad
1 pkg. baby spinach
1/2 cup dried cranberries (I use these instead of the mandarin oranges)
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
2 hard boiled eggs
1/3 cup sugar (I use organic cane)
3 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon honey (I use Agave)
2 tablespoon finely chopped red onion
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
In a large salad bowl, toss spinach, tomatoes and mushrooms; set aside. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, combine the first 7 dressing ingredients. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. Whisk in the oil. Drizzle over salad, add dried cranberries, toss to coat. Finally, top with sliced hard-boiled eggs.
I can't seem to have enough salmon. I just love it to death. And leafy green veggies - well they taste good and they're good for you. Y'all knew that right !
