Simply Soy Salmon

By the time the end of August comes around, I really only want to eat the last of the tomatoes from my garden w/ fresh mozzarella cheese and basil for dinner along with some grilled corn on the cob.

I get tired of cooking dinners and just want to hang at the beach for those last few days of summer, and drink gin & tonics (Negronis work too) and enjoy.

Well, some of us have to work and make dinner for their families, so here is the easiest weeknight dinner I know (besides boiling water for a pasta dish).

Soy Glazed Salmon:

1 lb. piece of wild salmon
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 tbsp sesame oil
4 tbsp soy sauce
kosher salt & pepper
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Mix the ingredients for the marinade and pour over the fish in a glass dish.

Let marinate for up to 2 hours, then transfer to a baking sheet.

I would advise lining your baking pan with foil, cause the soy and sugar make a big sticky mess.

Bake the fish in a 400F oven for 15 minutes.

You can sprinkle some sesame seeds over the top if you like but I love a sliced avocado sprinkled with some red onion, cilantro and sea salt.

Simply Delicious.
