Hoisin Glazed Salmon

In 46 years of being married to Bill, this is a first!  Who would’ve thought?

It’s an understatement, to say Bill's not crazy about salmon.  So, recently at the fish counter, when he said, “Buy some salmon fillets,” you could’ve knocked me over with a feather!  Huh???  The man has pretty much refused salmon of any kind, for any meal, anywhere!

Salmon is way up there on my list of favorites though, no matter how it’s prepared, and I knew I had to make it especially delicious last night...

And, I did!  This is salmon, the quick and easy way!  The spicy glaze makes it flavorful and delectable.  It’s a perfect blend of ingredients, complimenting the salmon.  Hopefully, it will convert that non-salmon lover in your neck of the woods, like it did Bill!

Hoisin Glazed Salmon


4 tablespoons hoisin garlic sauce
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon seasoned pepper
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
4 (6-ounces) salmon fillets


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Whisk together first 5 ingredients in a small bowl.
Arrange fillets in a shallow dish and pour marinade over all, turning to coat evenly.
Let marinate for 10-15 minutes.
Place fish on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
Sprinkle sesame seeds over salmon.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

  1. This sounds very tasty. Our men surprise us at times, don't they?

  2. Dear Pam I love salmopn and black sesame !! I bookmarked this!! xxx

  3. I'm not wild about salmon but I'll eat it because it's good for me. I have to have a lot of flavor on it in order to eat it though. I love hoisin sauce so I know that I'd really enjoy this salmon.

  4. Pam, Fortunately we both like salmon. However, we've never gotten into the habit of cooking fish at home...perhaps a lack of confidence. Most of our fish is consumed in restaurants. FYI, I did cook salmon on the grill once and it was the best ever! However, it was Copper River Salmon...its the best but its hard to come by. (No snow so far in E TN...mid-40s today) Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  5. We both are big salmon lovers and I'm always on the lookout for new recipes. This sounds delicious and I always have some sesame seeds in the frig.

  6. This sounds so simple and so tasty. And LOL about that husband. Love those surprises don't we.

  7. We are both salmon fans and if this recipe can turn your hubby around, it must be tried.

  8. I suppose it's all in how it's cooked, and you being the GREAT cook that you are, probably put some magic touches on this dish...I believe I'll give this a try, as I'm not a big salmon lover myself.
    You always know exactly what spices and such to use...It amazes me!

  9. Will you give Chris whatever Bill had, because I dream of the day he'll say "buy some salmon" lol I usually have to make a piece for me and piece of something else for him!!

    Love Hoisin glazes on chicken and fish.. will try this next time!!!

  10. Salmon is one of our favourite meals, but it needs to be wild and not farmed we think to have a good flavour. I am cooking salmon for lunch tomorrow :-) Keep well and have a good weekend Diane

  11. I love salmon and generally eat it every week. I'm looking forward to trying the glaze. Hope you're having a cozy Sunday.

  12. I'm so fortunate that my hubby loves salmon. One, it has to be grilled outside; two, it has to have a wonderful sauce like this. Your recipe sounds delicious and kudos to your hubby for trying it.. I just wish there were more wild caught salmon options available at our stores.

  13. I am always looking for new salmon recipes! This looks great Pam!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.
