Today, a special Birthday shout out goes to my Step Dad James! Happy Birthday!
We celebrated his birthday Friday night with a yummy dinner made by yours truly!
His only request for his birthday from me was a delicious meal so of course I had to pick something mouth-wateringly delicious. But what to cook? I scoured the blogs I follow regularly to find the perfect dish for the evening.
I know I have shared my love of IGE with you all but I don’t believe I have mentioned my other blog crush of How Sweet It Is. Her photography is out of this world not to mention the awesome recipes she creates so of course she had just what I was looking for!
Bourbon Glazed Salmon
Adapted from How Sweet It Is
- 1.8 lb Salmon filet
- 1 1/4 C bourbon
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 T pepper
- 1 1/2 T salt
- 2 t cider vinegar
- 1 1/2 T honey
- 1 T course mustard
- 2 T Worcestershire sauce
Start by making your glaze.
Combine all ingredients except the salmon in a saucepan and whisk. Heat over high heat until it comes to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and allow the mixture to simmer for about 10 minutes. Once the mixture has reduced, pour it in a bowl and let it come to room temperature.
Preheat your broiler in your oven. Place your salmon on a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Broil for about 10 minutes or until the salmon is cooked thoroughly.
Remove salmon from the oven and brush with the bourbon glaze.
This was just the dish that James had asked for! I rounded out the plate with baked asparagus and cous cous which seemed the be the perfect pairing!
Light yet still indulgent thanks to that yummy glaze!
Now, I’m off to finish up my long list of Sunday to-do’s before the work week begins tomorrow. How do the weekends go by so fast?
Have a great week y’all!
