Soy Ginger Salmon

Wednesday evenings are one of the nuttiest in our house. Both kids have assorted activities. We do not get home until 7:30, making the whole dinner routine a bit tough. I don’t like to do fast food, nor do we have any decent kosher fast food nearby. I do admit, I often turn to the more processed/frozen varieties of nutrition too often on those nights. I prefer to give my family a more balanced home cooked meal. This past Wednesday, we had the perfect dinner. We had a soy ginger salmon over whole wheat couscous with mushrooms and herbs. Yum!

Soy Ginger Salmon

Marinade Ingredients

1 pound of salmon
1/3 cup brown sugar
juice of half a lemon
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons ginger paste
1 tablespoon olive oil

Marinate your salmon for at least 30 minutes.

You have two options for cooking this up. You can sear it and finish in the oven, or you can broil for 15 minutes or so on high.

I chose to sear for 10 minutes and then finish in the oven.

Heat up the marinade ingredients in a sauce pan. Heat to boiling. Pour some of this sauce over the salmon and couscous.

I would show you a picture, but the camera didn’t cooperate. I will make this again though. So good!

Easy Rib Steak

C is for Cow.

B is for the beef that comes from cow. I was a vegetarian for over 10 years. Then one day, I had an extreme craving for my mom’s brisket. I haven’t been a vegetarian since. I can’t say I love meat, but I do crave meat every once in a while.

One Thursday evening, while doing my pre-shabbat shopping, these pretty rib steaks looked perfect for dinner. Much dinner than the omelette that was planned. Steak is even easier than omelettes. Just marinade and broil. If you are extra good, you can have a salad alongside that steak.

The marinade I created on the fly for 2 rib steaks is as follows:

1/4 cup of worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons of dijon mustard

2 tablespoons of garlic
5 cloves of garlic, crushed

Stir the mixture up. Spread over the steaks. Let it sit for a half hour. Broil.
