For the past few weeks, I haven’t done much serious cooking — although I’ve made dinner most nights, it’s usually just a really simple baked chicken or fish in a super easy (sometimes store-bought) marinade. Takeout was a lot easier in New York, so I’ve had to adjust a little for the night when we don’t want to put much effort into dinner.
So I thought I’d share one of my easy, go-to recipes! You probably have almost all of these ingredients in your fridge right now, so if you want, feel free to whip this one up tonight. It only takes a few minutes!
I’ve gotten so used to running at 200% for the last few months, I almost cant get my mind around the idea of a full weekend with nothing to do. We’re heading to the Rodeo tomorrow night, which I absolutely can’t wait for, and hopefully we’re going to start looking at houses in the next few weeks! Today, it’s 10:30 a.m. and I’m still in bed catching up on Portlandia, trying to motivate myself to get dressed so I can go shopping. Not a bad day so far!
Maple Glazed Salmon
4 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 small clove garlic, minced
1/8 tsp fleur de sel
Pinch of fresh ground black pepper
1/2 pound salmon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a small bowl, mix the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, salt, and pepper. Place salmon in a shallow glass baking dish, and coat with the maple syrup mixture. Cover the dish, and marinate salmon in the refrigerator 30 minutes, turning once.
Place the baking dish in the preheated oven, and bake salmon uncovered 20 minutes, or until easily flaked with a fork.
