a recipe to make for dinner... (12)

This is a recipe to try.  I am not joking...

Go to your local grocers and buy some salmon because this is a recipe you will make more than once.

Miso-glazed salmon from the Weeknight cookbook (and p.s. it's made with bok choy but mine had already gone bad by the time I made the salmon. Cest le vie! No bok choy!)

1/2 C white or yellow miso
1/3 C mirin or dry sherry
1/4 C sake or dry white wine
3 T light brown sugar
2 T soy sauce
4 Salmon fillets about 1 1/2 lbs.

What To Do With Whacha Got:
Marinate the fish
In a shallow glass or ceramic dish just large enough to hold the salmon fillets in a single layer, stir toether the miso, mirin, sake, brown sugar, and soy sauce.  Add the salmon to the marinade and turn to coat.  Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes, turning the fillets occasionally.  Alternatively, cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Cook the fish
Preheat the broiler.  Remove the fillets from the marinade, reserving the marinade.  Place the fillets on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet or broiler pan.  Place under the broiler and broil until the fillets are caramelized and lightly charred on the edges, 3-4 minutes.  Carefully turn the fillets and brush with the reserved marinade.  Broil until the salmon is slightly charred on the outside and just cooked throughout, 3-4 minutes longer.  Divide unto 4 plates and serve.

Sorry I do not have a picture.  It was too delicious to pause and take a picture of.

Enjoy! And again, you have to try this recipe.

Don't worry all you "no-more-recipes-tell-us-about-babies" readers.  There will be updates coming soon.  I had a weird-o weekend with feeling sick and back to square one so I wasn't in a mood to blog about throwing up in a Japanese restaurant. Oops! Did I just write that "out loud". Yeah, it wasn't my most glorious moment.  But pregnancy will do that to ya!

The good news is that March and April will be months for focusing on babies before I go on mandatory house rest.  So I'm sure I'll have puh-lenty to say and blab about in the months to come.

But just to wet your appetite until then.... here's a lovely little mental picture for you.

Hubs. I. Wrestling a double stroller in Babies R Us.
Yup, not one of our loveliest moments.
