Soy Glazed Salmon

Soy SalmonIngredients:

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water


1.    Combine all ingredients except the fish in a frying pan and put on low heat.
2.    Stir it up until the sugar dissolves and resembles a sauce.
3.    Put the salmon and the sauce in a sealable plastic bag.
4.    Put it in the fridge and let it marinate for about 2 hours.
5.    After 2 hours, remove the fish and sauce from the bag and wrap it in tin foil.
6.    Pre-heat the oven to broil. Put the salmon in the oven to broil for about 8 minutes or until the fish no longer looks raw in the middle and flakes easily. Check the color by using a fork to separate the flakes.

Serve with: Seasoned steamed broccoli, rice and a chardonnay.
Presentation: Place the salmon over a serving spoon sized pile of rice, with the broccoli in a half circle around the rice. 

Pan Seared Fillet Mignon



  • 2 8-10 oz. Beef filets
  • Canola oil

1.    Heat a small pan on high with 2 tbsps of oil.
2.    Sear the filets on each side for 30 seconds.
3.    Wrap the filets in foil and place in the oven.
4.    Broil in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes. If you're not sure it's done, go ahead and cut into the middle to check its color. The meat should be a medium to dark shade of pink. If it's brown, it's overcooked, and too red means under-cooked.

Serve with: Roasted red potatoes, steamed asparagus and a cabernet sauvignon.
Presentation: Slice the filet in thin slices halfway through and spread it like a fan over the red potatoes, with the asparagus leaning on the other side of the potatoes.
