Never Again

Joe's favorite dinner that I make is orange-glazed salmon. It's a bastardized recipe from a restaurant I once worked in.

  • Salt and pepper a salmon fillet.
  • Stick it in the oven.
  • Boil orange juice and sugar until it reduces to a glaze.
  • When salmon is almost done, pour glaze over it and stick back in the oven.
  • Top with fresh basil if the neighborhood geese have not eaten your entire herb garden.

Sounds simple, right? No, no way as my two-year-old nephew would say. Each and every time I fall victim to some law of physics: orange juice will boil over no matter what size pot you use. It will turn into a black, sticky mess that can't be cleaned off the stovetop. I actually used a stockpot tonight, and it still boiled over. I'm done, I hope Joe enjoys his last meal of sorts.

P.S. Boiling orange juice smells like urine. Want to come over?

Hey Cory,
What's going on with Lukewarm Mama - I tried to get to her site a couple of times today and I was redirected to something else.

I would try your recipe but you don't exactly paint a pretty picture with it.

Maybe that's your payback for poor sedita. It's way too coincidental.
