Salmon and Vegetable Orzo ( w/ Optional Teriyaki Glaze)

This is a really quick and simple recipe. I don't really follow measurements, so I apologize in advance that I don't have exact measurements. But, here goes:


Teriyaki Glaze (optional)

First, preheat oven to about 400-4250 degrees Fahrenheit. Place salmon in bakeware, salt and pepper on each side to your taste. Place about a square inch or less of butter on each piece. Bake for about 30-45 mins.

I love the teriyaki glaze, but my hubby prefers the salmon without it.

For the teriyaki glaze, take about 1/4 cup of ginger teriyaki sauce and 1/4 cup or a little less honey and whisk until thoroughly mixed. Makes a great sauce for the salmon and/or Orzo.

For the salmon without the teriyaki glaze, but a little more taste: sprinkle dill and spritz some lemon on the salmon before baking.

Veggie Orzo

Orzo Pasta
Butter or Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
Garlic Powder

Boil the the orzo pasta until tender, strain, and set aside. Sautee the mushrooms, broccoli, & onions, (and any other vegetables you would like to add) in butter (or olive oil), garlic powder, salt and pepper (to taste), add 2-3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. Add orzo pasta and stir together.

This can also be served as is with the plain salmon or with the ginger teriyaki glaze for a more Asian-inspired meal.
