Sweet Ginger Salmon Steaks
I should really thank my Dad
Because he made them for dinner
and it's the best I've ever had!
Man, when I said that my husband could cook salmon... I wasn't kidding! LOL.
Earlier today I told him that he could cook Salmon the best I've ever had. I was serious, of course, and half-way hinting that it would be great if he cooked dinner tonight. I'd been cleaning all day and was just plain pooped!
He, being the amazing husband that he is, quickly volunteered... eager to show off his expertise in the kitchen. Now, you must know, that he is extremely competitive and he knows full well that my grandfather was a chef and that my mother is a TOP NOTCH cook herself. He is well aware that I grew up with the best food in the world (as if it isn't obvious by my the "generous" physique I am unable to shake). I love food and it shows, is what I'm trying to say! LOL.
Don, wanting to live up to whatever standards he believes to exist in my mind, will not be outdone.
So, he looks up an awesome recipe on the net, prints it, and proceeds to go to town. A little clinking around in the kitchen, a slight bit of smoke fingering through the air, and a few waves of the towel at the smoke detector from Gary later... and we have dinner ready to go.
Not that he doesn't always cook something great when he cooks, but this time he really set the bar even higher. Every mouth-watering bite had been thoroughly savored, and in-between every bite I mumbled something about this being REALLY GOOD. I just wanted to emphasize that point in case he didn't hear me the previous 10 or 20 times. LOL.
I had to take a few pics of my son, Gary, as he enjoyed his first bites as well.
The sweet blend of brown sugar and freshly ground ginger glazed over the juicy salmon was definitely mouth watering. I'll include the recipe here for anyone that wants it...
