Lately, I have been watching Nikita on Netflix and not updating my blog. What can I say, I love TV shows with a strong female lead. Haha! Anyhow, I did manage to make some tasty soy glazed salmon the other day based off the Barefoot Contessa marinade recipe.
Soy Glazed Salmon Marinade Ingredients:
- 2 Tbsp. dijon mustard
- 3 Tbsp. soy sauce
- 3 large cloves of garlic minced or pressed
- 3 Tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil (you may need to add a little more as you mix)
- 1 Tbsp. honey
- 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp. miso paste (I think I may have used too much in my original recipe, so I reduced it here to 1/2 a tsp. This is also optional–you don’t absolutely need the miso paste)
- pinch of cayenne
- black and white sesame seed to sprinkle on top
Mix all the ingredients together, and taste to check your seasonings. Spread over top of salmon fillets, and bake for about 15 minutes at 400 F.
Mr Cyclist has been cooking up a storm this week. So, probably another reason I have not updated the blog. I bought a roasting chicken, and came home one day to find homemade chicken noodle soup. So delightful! Then, another day he had made delicious homemade pasta sauce from san marzano tomatoes (the key for the best sauce).
And, he created this sinfully delicious pasta dish with a cream sauce, broccoli, pesto chicken sausage, and sun dried tomatoes.
I suppose I have also been overwhelmed with the January weight loss storm of New Year’s resolutions. I will make my resolutions next week. Haha. That’s just how it is being a weight loss Dietitian, and writing a blog about nutrition and health this time of year. You easily get burnt out. So, perhaps I let myself relax watching Nikita. No crime in that. At least there are no commercials!
I resolve to blog another post tomorrow 🙂
