Easy Sesame Salmon

I tried a recipe tonight & I knew I had to share it after one bite! Mr.Hooah & I like trying new foods, however, he is SUCH a Picky-Pete! When something is put before him (i.e. brussel sprouts), he acts like a kid & whines until I threaten "No dessert if you don't clean your plate" Joking Joking LOL. But on the other hand I am not as bold as he when it comes to going outside the lines of your basic meats... Mr.Hooah likes loves eel sushi, cow tongue tacos, swordfish & lamb. All I can think of when he gets lamb at our local Mongolian Grill, is a little white lamb "BAAAAAAAAAAAA'ing" its sweet little face off LOL! So ummm, no sirreeeee, NOT FOR ME! Needless to say, our fridge is always packed full of chicken, turkey burger, & steaks... we don't really do fish often & if we do, it's talapia, but I tried this salmon recipe a friend recommended & it was so delicious. I liked salmon before but THIS salmon, I LOVE!!! I cannot tell you all how much I love love loooooove asian food! (I'm not just stereotyping myself ither lol) The honey tones down the heat from the sriracha & the salmon was so moist & cooked perfectly in the 10 minutes it took to cook. I mean, 10 minutes, how stinkin easy is that?! This is definitely a winner for Mr.Hooah & I! We are going to make sure we add this to the next meal plan for sure! Hope you guys enjoy it too! (:

  1. Hi Carrie, Thanks for sharing your recipe on my blog :)

  2. For being a picky pete...your husband certainly is adventurous in what he is willing to try. I'm impressed...and slightly grossed out :).

    This recipe looks like a crowd pleaser, though. Yum!
