Marinated Broiled Salmon with Garlic Spinach

Copper River Salmon is in season right now and we all love it.  This is just one of the many ways we eat it.  Mix 4 T. soy sauce, 3 T. grated fresh ginger, 2 T. honey, a sprinkling of pepper and 3 T. of sesame oil.  Whisk this and pour it in a ziplock bag with your salmon.  Marinate it overnight.

When you are ready to cook it, turn the broiler on and while it is heating, melt 2 T. of butter in a pan.  Saute' 3 diced garlic cloves in the butter for a couple minutes and add some fresh spinach.  Sprinkle it with salt and pepper.  Place a lid on the pan for a few minutes until the spinach wilts.  Take the lid off and stir it around.

Broil the salmon flipping once and then back again until the top starts to get crispy.  Serve the salmon on a bed of spinach.  Fast, easy, delicious!

I have not gone to thrift stores in ages.  I stopped at two the other day and was glad I did.  I found this pullman loaf pan which is perfect for me because I only have one and my recipe makes 2 loaves.  2.99! 

And when I opened it I found the original wrapping still on it.  It had never been used.

Then I found these old bread pans for 49 cents.  I love old baking pans.

They cleaned up perfectly in the dishwasher.

And 4 nice souffle dishes for 2.99.

A perfect pate' terrine for 2.99.

A hardly used ball bearing rolling pin for 1.99.

And this was the best find of all.  I have this exact lasagna pan which I bought from Chef's catalog for around 40.00.  This is the absolute same pan, never used, for 2.99!  I always make double lasagnas and really needed a second pan.

This juicer is in perfect shape and was 1.99.  I have to be careful or I will be hitting the thrift shops too often again.
