Balsamic Maple Glazed Salmon with Steamed Spinach and Sautéed Cherry Tomatoes
It has been a bumpy road trying to bring in spring. From one day to the next I have no idea what to expect! It can be in the 80s on one day and drop 30 degrees the next. The only spring-thing I have control over is the menu!
At Christmas our daughter in Seattle sent us a wonderful box of seafood from Sitka Salmon Shares. It was a wonderful surprise and we have enjoyed each meal of wild Alaskan seafood: salmon, cod or halibut from our box. Sitka Salmon Shares is a wonderful way to enjoy fresh seafood and support our small fishing families in Alaska! Purchasing a share provides you with a box of fresh seafood each month during fishing season. Take a look at their webpage to get an idea of what is available.
Last night I felt like cooking as if it was spring! While the tomatoes are in the ground and there are blossoms galore, it is definitely not warm enough for anything exciting to happen....except at the dinner table. Last night we had a quick and easy meal of grilled salmon with steamed spinach and sautéed cherry tomatoes. It was served on some roasted and smashed baby white potatoes.
