Salmon recipe from Rachael Ray

One of these days I need to have a marathon blogging session to try to catch up on all the recipes we're making, but one quick post will have to do for tonight....

We tried this recipe a couple of weeks ago - it's from the 365: No Repeats cookbook. It's a very colorful dish and pretty easy to throw together. Although Rachael's recipes usually take me longer than the supposed 30 minutes, they do tend to be complete meals, evening things out in the end.

Lime and Honey Glazed Salmon
This salmon recipe was good, but not spectacular. The flavors on the salmon itself - lime, honey and chili powder - didn't do much for me, but then I tend to like very strong flavors on salmon. It wasn't bad by any means, it just didn't stand out. I did, however, very much enjoy the black bean salad. I'm not sure the spinach really belongs, but it melded nicely, added color and nutrition - all pluses in my book. And it certainly was healthful and summery - as much as I love wintry comfort food, it's nice to have a bit of summer in January.

Like I said, short and sweet. That's the only way I'm going to get it all done!

  2. I have made this recipe before too, and the comments I wrote next to it mirrored yours. Salmon was so-so, but the salad was really good!

  4. Foodscarnival - Thanks.

    Melissa - Yes, the salmon was definitely missing something.....

    Ana - Thanks!

  5. What a beautiful dish. Lots of pretty colors. Sorry it didn't taste as good as it looks.

    I must say, your photography is looking really good these days.

  6. Tracy - Thanks! I prefer natural lighting, but I finally found a decent spot in the house for taking photos during the winter months.
