We've discovered that the less you have to work with, the more creative you get. It's the end of the month and what we have in our cupboards and refrigerator is slim...However we're out of the Mac N' Cheese/Top Roman for dinner every night phase...We're married and we have a 2 year old to feed as well...so what do we do for dinner...well I'll tell you! We bought a bag of salmon from Winco at the beginning of the month...you know the frozen filets that come in the air tight, plastic, sealed bags...Thankfully there are 4 left so That's what I started with...We rifled through our kitchen and went on a website called RecipeMatcher.com...it lets you list the ingredients you have and picks out recipes accordingly...We found one that sounded good, elaborated on it (made it our own), and viola we have a healthy dinner for 3!
RECIPE AS WE MADE IT
4 SALMON FILETS
1/4 CUP BALSAMIC VINEGAR
1/4 CUP WATER
4 1/2 TSP. LEMON JUICE
5 TSP. BROWN SUGAR
SALT AND PEPPER BOTH SIDES OF THE SALMON, THEN SEAR 3 MIN. ON EACH SIDE. PLACE ON PLATE AND SET ASIDE.
MIX THE BALSAMIC, WATER, LEMON JUICE, AND BROWN SUGAR...REDUCE IN A SAUCEPAN...NOT TOO MUCH (YOU DECIDE HOW YOU LIKE IT)
PLACE A LITTLE BIT OF THE SAUCE ON YOUR SALMON AND ENJOY!!
I know salmon can be expensive, but as I said before look for sales! Check out your local WINCO, or if there's not one where you are then find a store that doesn't charge an arm and a leg for their food. Make this recipe your own! Although it's pretty darn good as is...add or lessen the sugar...enjoy!
