My friend Elizabeth cooked an impromptu dinner for her boyfriend and I last night and it was a real winner. She did a soy and brown sugar marinated salmon, a wild rice medley, and paired it with a very nice Riesling. I threw in a frozen green bean/wax bean/carrot mix that I had and dinner turned out as you can see above. Even better, the marinade for the salmon (the real star on the plate) was incredibly simple.
When marinading, you can either put the salmon filets in a gallon bag or in the oven-safe glass dish you will eventually cook the fish in. That glass dish can then go straight into the oven and then straight into the dishwasher. SIMPLE.
