    Thanks, Mariner! Both recipes sound good. The brown sugar/pepper recipe actually sounds just what I had in mind...a slightly sweet marinade.

    Re: Recipes

    I made this salmon recipe for a Japanese themed dinner party I had for my daughter's 18th birthday. It is simple and I made it in the oven. I am not sure if you all can easily obtain miso in your area but we can get it at just about any store where I live (SF).

    Miso Glazed Salmon
    Ingredients
    1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce (I use regular)
    2 tablespoons hot water
    2 tablespoons miso (soybean paste)
    4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
    Cooking spray
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives or green onions
    Preparation
    Preheat broiler.
    Combine first 4 ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Arrange fish in a shallow baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon miso mixture evenly over fish.

    Broil 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting twice with miso mixture. Sprinkle with chives or green onions. Serve with rice.

    Re: Recipes

    I posted this about a year ago, but it's our favorite salmon recipe.

    Bourbon Salmon

    This is a marinade for salmon steaks. We usually grill them, but you can bake it in the oven.

    4 oz. soy sauce
    4 oz. bourbon
    4 cloves of garlic chopped
    2 fingers of fresh ginger, grated
    2 oz of olive oil
    1/4 c. br. sugar
    2 tbsp. honey
    1 tsp. ground cloves
    1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
    1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. allspice
    1/2 tsp. ground pepper

    Mix together and put in ziplock bag with salmon fillets. Marinate at least 3 hours, but the longer the better.

    And this is not sweet even though it has the brown sugar and honey. It has a wonderful flavor. I had been making it for a while when my husband saw the ingredients and he said had he seen them first, he may not have eaten it, but that the flavor was outstanding and he didn't know it had all that cinnamon and other "baking spices" in it.

    Re: Recipes

    MRD - sounds delicious, do you grill it or bake it? I think I'll make it this weekend, I have all the ingredients and I just bought a big piece of salmon from Costco and I have to cook it by tomorrow.

    Re: Recipes

    We prefer to grill it. I've never baked it, but presume that you can. We just like the taste of it on the grill.

    I just say you can't go wrong with bourbon in a recipe!

    Re: Recipes

    My brother made this awesome "baked beans" recipe for 4th of July:

    Tom’s Baked Beans

    1 lb. Mild Sausage/ Fry in deep pot breaking sausage
    1 cup chopped onion/ into small pieces. Drain grease.

    1 can (15 oz.) green beans
    1 can (15 oz.) wax beans/ Drain and add to cooked sausage.
    1 can (15 oz.) lima beans

    1 can (15 oz.) pork & beans/ Add to sausage and allow to “marry” for
    1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce / a few hours or overnight.
    1 cup brown sugar

    Pour into Pampered Chef oblong stone or other rectangular baking dish. Cover with bacon. Cover with foil and bake 1 hour @ 350 F then 1 hour with foil off to brown bacon. (You may need to broil briefly if bacon is still too fatty.)

    Note from Tom: In a feeble attempt to make this more healthy, I trim the bacon one slice at a time with scissors and then cut it into one inch pieces and evenly lay them across the top of the beans. This makes it much easier to serve and I never need to broil at the end.

    Re: Recipes

    Double-posting because I can't figure out how to make the directions on the right space away from the ingredients. It doesn't look like that when I try to edit it. Anyway, ask me if something isn't clear. This is sooooooooo good - a whole meal, really. It would be good if you were taking someone a covered dish meal. Everyone wanted the recipe and he says whenever he makes it for church dinners he gets multiple recipe requests.

    I have actually had this before. I have a friend that makes almost the exact same recipe and it's fabulous!

    Hit the farmer's market in the rain this morning, but I was able to get there early enough to get blackberries!!! I'm so happy. More peaches too.
    And I've come up with a fabulous new recipe.


    Carolina Crush

    1 lb. peaches peeled and sliced
    1/3. cup brown sugar
    1/4- 1/2 cup Contreau
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    1/2 tsp. allspice

    2 bottles of Chardonnay
    1 liter of club soda or gingerale

    Mix together brown sugar, contreau, cinnamon, vanilla and allspice and pour over peaches. Let soak for 2-3 hours. Pour mixture into blender and puree.

    Add the 2 bottles of Chardonnay and the liter of club soda to the peach puree and serve in a beautiful pitcher. Can add mint springs to the glasses.

    This is like a great peach sangria.
    I served it over crushed ice and it was fabulous.

    I make something similar in our crockpot and it's easy and tasty!

    Italian Roast

    1 small (about 2 lb) beef or pork roast
    1 package dry Italian Dressing mix
    2 bottles of beer

    Rub Italian Dressing into all sides of meat
    Place in crockpot and cover with 1 beer
    Turn crockpot to Low for 6 hours (or more if meat is larger)
    Enjoy 2nd beer while dinner cooks!

    This is great on sandwiches and I've served it over rice too.
    This italian roast recipe sounds wonderful! (I have always used lipton onion soup) I do have a question though: my family would rather have the sandwiches from the roast instead of dinner with it, so would it work if I threw in peppers and onions into the crock pot to serve on the sandwiches, or should I just saute them before putting them on?

    I sould saute them later, as they would get way too soggy if you put them in the crockpot with the roast.

    Lipton onion soup, campbells cream of mushroom and cream of chicken soup, taco seasoning envelopes, french's fried onions and a progresso italian breadcrumbs are staple items in my pantry!
