His and Hers Salmon

There are times in a relationship, when no matter how well you communicate, you just can't come to an agreement. There are times when, even though it will win you martyr points, you don't feel like you can compromise. Here is a story of such an occasion, but this time it has a happy ending.

You see, last Tuesday my wife and I decided to make salmon for dinner. When discussing how it should be prepared, we couldn't reach an agreement. Fortunately for us, the recipes were simple enough that we could split the fillet in half and make both.

Here are two simple recipes for enjoying salmon:

His : Maple Soy Salmon
with Maple Soy soaked rice... yum!

Combine ingredients, bring to a boil until it just starts to thicken. Brush onto salmon to coat, pour the remainder of the glaze over medium grain white rice. Bake the fish at 425. Break up fish into pieces and serve 'His Style' in bowl over sauced rice with chopsticks.

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • 2 cloves crushed garlic

Hers: Sweet and Spicy Rubbed Salmon

First referenced April 2008

Brush salmon with olive oil. Combine equal parts chili powder and brown sugar. Rub over salmon. Bake at 425. Serve over medium grain white rice.

  • olive oil

  • chili powder

  • brown sugar

Hopefully this tip will serve you well the next time you have a disagreement about how to prepare the salmon...

Good conflict resolution. But just to complicate matters, have you ever tried cooking salmon at very low heat? Like 250 degrees for about 20 minutes? It comes out completely different -- sort of soft and custardy (but fully cooked). Just something to consider next time this argument pops up.
