Dinner Tonight - Wasabi Salmon
Wasabi Salmon is a great way to prepare some fresh salmon fillets. This is a recipe from Cooking Light that is one of our favorites. The salmon fillets are marinated briefly in the soy/wasabi marinade and cooked off in a non-stick skillet in a matter of minutes. The short marinade time really imparts much flavor to the fish. I suggest you follow the directions and use a low-sodium soy sauce as the regular stuff will make it too salty.
For the side dishes we had tossed salad along with Broccoli with Orange Sauce, another Cooking Light recipe from 1995. This was good, but it did not overly impress us. I much prefer a lemon flavor with broccoli. I steamed the broccoli on top of the stove with my very old steamer basket, and it was slightly overcooked. I have a vegetable steamer, but I did not want to get it out and it takes longer to use. However, I prefer the flavor of it when it is cooked in boiling water for just a few minutes and then placed in an ice bath to stop the cooking. You could always toss the broccoli with the sauce in the skillet to reheat it. I may try that method next time.
