Hoisin-Glazed Salmon

Some days, you just need a good quick dinner…

This is one of Jack’s favorite meals and, coincidentally, it just happens to be so fast that it’s one of my favorites as well. I walk in the door, go to the freezer, dig up a packet of salmon, and place it in a large bowl of cool water. This will thaw the fish nicely in about a half hour. Then I do whatever I have to (change clothes, unload the car of grocery bags, etc.) for fifteen minutes or so, put some rice on to steam, prep veggies, make the sauce for the salmon, and then it’s time to start cooking.

Once the broiler is turned on, I start the vegetables. By the time the fish is cooked, the veggies and the rice are as well and we can eat. :)
