Bourbon-Glazed Salmon

I love the Bourbon Salmon from Publix, but it can get pretty pricey at $6.99 per fillet, so I was on the hunt for a good recipe that I could duplicate at home for much less.  I found this recipe from Cooking Light magazine and it came to just at $3.25 per fillet.  It is really good and worth making.  This makes 8 servings but I cut it down to just 2.

Bourbon-Glazed Salmon

  • 1  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 6  tablespoons  bourbon
  • 1/4  cup  low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2  tablespoons  fresh lime juice
  • 2  teaspoons  grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 2  garlic cloves, crushed
  • 8  (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
  • Cooking spray
  • 4  teaspoons  sesame seeds (optional) 
  • 1/2  cup  thinly sliced green onions

Combine the first 8 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; add salmon fillets. Seal bag, and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, turning bag once. Remove fillets from bag; discard marinade.
Preheat broiler.
Place fillets on broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 11 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Sprinkle each fillet with 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds and 1 tablespoon onions.

Week 1-Nutrisystem

Yes, I've been away from my blog for a while with every day crazy, kid things and the Thanksgiving holidays!  I'm happy to be back!  YAY!

I just finished up my first week on Nutrisystem. I have lost exactly 4lbs in that one week and I'm extremely happy with the results.  I've tried Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers and figured..what the hell why not Nutrisystem!  I can give this diet TWO very big THUMBS UP!  All the prepacked food I ate this week was very good.  I'm looking forward to Week 2 starting tomorrow!  Whooo Hoooo!
