Pineapple and Soy-Glazed Salmon



This is a tasty Asian twist on salmon!



The popular white miso in this recipe is slightly salty, a bit sweet ~ having a mild taste that blends well with pineapple juice for a delicious glaze.  It provides an ideal accompaniment to salmon by giving depth and flavor to the dish.  Plus, it’s a healthy addition, being packed with vitamins and protein.



This recipe was featured in Country Living magazine.  If you’re looking for a great new salmon recipe to try in your kitchen, this could be perfect for you!
We each ate one salmon fillet for dinner; and the next day, ate one for lunch, atop mesclun greens.  Doesn’t get much better than this!


Pineapple and Soy-Glazed Salmon'
Ingredients:
1¼ cups pineapple juice
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
¼ cup dry sherry
1 teaspoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons miso paste
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
½ teaspoon seasoned pepper


Method:
Marinate the salmon: 

In a medium saucepan over high heat, cook the pineapple juice, soy and sherry for 20 minutes.
Stir in brown sugar and cook for 5 more minutes.
Using a whisk, stir in miso.
Remove from heat, allow mixture to cool.
Season salmon fillets with the pepper and place them in a shallow baking dish.
Pour pineapple glaze over the fillets, turning to coat each side, and chill for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Roast the fillets:
Place the salmon on the top shelf of the oven and cook until the flesh turns opaque, about 7 minutes.
Change the oven temperature setting to broil.
Cook salmon under broiler until the glaze begins to brown – 2 to 3 minutes.
Serve immediately.

ENJOY!

  1. We like salmon most any way. And, I'm always happy to have new uses for miso. In fact, I have some right now that I used for soup a few times. Love the taste.

    Best,

    1. Shug, usually I buy Wild Alaska Salmon, if not that, farmed Atlantic. Both are good, but the Alaska salmon: Coho is delicious and so is Sockeye with its great red color. Hope this helps a little! You have a Blessed week!

  4. Pam, We really like salmon and the pineapple and soy glazed salmon with Miso looks great! Our favorite salmon is Copper River salmon from Alaska. Unfortunately, its only available a few weeks each year. The good news is that this glaze would pop up the flavor of any good fresh piece of salmon. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    1. Dottie, thanks! I really like asparagus too and love this time of year when it's perfectly fresh. And a little sweetness goes great with the pineapple and salmon. Can't wait until the grill is fired up for salmon on the grill. Take care

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.

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
