Swimming Upstream

A few weeks ago I promised fish recipes, and today's recipe is exactly that. Since discovering that my kids like fish, I've determined that we're going to try and eat fish once a week. That's a big step up from the occasional fish we'd been having. Today's recipe is from the June issue of Cooking Light, Grilled Salmon with Apricot-Mustard Glaze. Overall the fish was well received. And when I say the fish was well-received I mean that Abigail literally went to town on the fish. She couldn't inhale it fast enough! Zander enjoyed it too, as did the grown-ups at the table. Andy cooked it perfectly, and the glaze was quite good.

My only concern with the recipe was that it was on the sweet side, but now as I'm looking at the recipe, I realize that I forgot to add the garlic to the salmon. No doubt that would have added some of the spiciness I was missing, and reigned in the sweet from the glaze. So don't forget the garlic. Grilled Salmon with Apricot-Mustard Glaze is an instant repeater here, we'll definitely be making it again soon.

Yay for eating fish! I'm so glad that the kids like it, too. I had salmon cakes last night for dinner (and have had them previously for several nights as they were left-overs!).

Salmon is one of my favorites. I need to pick up that issue of Cooking Light....This sounds fabulous. I will have to try it out.

Hooray for fish is right! I can't get enough of it!

Deborah, salmon is so versatile- I love how there are so many ways to cook with it.
