Hoisin Glazed Salmon
Food is such an important part of our lives. Not just for the nourishment it provides, but for the memories we make while enjoying it. From wedding cakes to a baby’s first food, those are foods we’ll never forget. I’ll never forget the best cup of coffee I had sitting at a corner café near the Eiffel Tower or sitting on a little stool eating Pho in Vietnam. These moments took place years ago, but I can still remember them like it was yesterday. I close my eyes and I remember the taste of the food and the atmosphere surrounding me. The crazy thing is I can remember those moments but I can’t remember what I wore yesterday.
When Mr. Mother Thyme and I lived in Florida we loved to dine at this restaurant that sat right on the water. The atmosphere was great, and the food was divine. I’ll never forget the sea bass I had there. I think that is when I fell in love with sea bass. It was a hoisin glazed fresh sea bass that was cooked to perfection. While this Hoisin Glazed Salmon is obviously not sea bass, it still reminds me of that delicious meal I had.
I love this Hoisin Glazed Salmon as it is quick and easy to prepare, a perfect 30 minute meal for busy nights. It is also great if entertaining as you are not chained to the kitchen cooking. You can whip up the marinade ahead of time. When ready to eat, fire up the oven to 400 degrees. Brush the salmon with this amazing marinade and pop it in the oven for only about 10-12 minutes. Serve on a bed of Coconut Rice and with some freshly steamed veggies.Print

You are so right. I have so many amazing memories that revolve around food. And it’s always nice to recreate them at home – it brings you right back to the way you felt!
Have a great weekend!
I think one of the things I love most about food is the memories we create around it and the nostalgia it induces. I love this story, Jennifer, and the salmon sounds amazing. I love these flavors!
The sauce really makes this salmon dish. This looks great!
