Maple Ginger Glazed Salmon

20 Jan

There are times when you are in the grocery store and you see a frozen item on sale that is a really good buy.  It might be an item that you normally don’t purchase frozen, but it seems too good to pass up.  This is what happened with a 4 pack of frozen salmon filets.  It was a great deal, but, every time I opened up the freezer, I was never interested in preparing them.  I just kind of felt like they were taking up valuable space where I could keep additional packages of bacon 🙂  or maybe Tupperware containers filled with excess cookies!

I decided that I had to cook up the salmon.  Sigh.  I really wasn’t looking forward to it but I knew it had to be done.  I started looking through my recipe collection and came across a glaze that looked pretty simple.  It must have been my lucky day, as I had all the ingredients on hand.

This was prepared on a week-night and from start to finish (with the exception of blog photos :)) we had dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes.  By making your own glaze, you can really transform a frozen piece of meat into an exceptional week-night dinner.  (I actually cooked the salmon from frozen)

Of course, this glaze could be prepared for fresh salmon (even yummier) – I think it would also be good on a pork tenderloin.
