Something Light

Sorry for the lack of posts this week.
I feel like I'm being pulled in a thousand directions at work, not sleeping well, waking up late, and lacking serious motivation.

It has been chilly here in Cincinnati, with a little bit of sunshine, so I've been eating TONS of soup. I wanted to find something that reminded me of summer to make up for missing yesterdays "Because I'm Hungry" recipe.

So Enjoy!

Salmon with Honey-Coriander Glaze


  • 1 tablespoon whole coriander seeds
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 5 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 salmon fillets (5 ounces each), skinned
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil


  1. Toast the coriander seeds in a dry, large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until golden, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool. Grind seeds in a spice grinder or crush with a mortar and pestle until coarsely ground; reserve skillet.
  2. Make glaze: Stir together crushed coriander seeds, honey, soy sauce, and lemon juice in a small bowl until combined.
  3. Lightly brush the top of each salmon fillet with glaze; reserve remainder. Heat oil in the nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Cook salmon fillets, glazed sides down, 1 minute; reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 2 minutes more. Turn fillets over, and cook 3 minutes for medium-rare (salmon will be slightly pink in the middle), or longer if desired. Transfer to a plate; loosely cover with foil to keep warm.
  4. Pour remaining glaze into skillet; bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook until glaze has thickened to the consistency of syrup, about 1 minute. Serve salmon with glaze on the side.
