Salmon with Hoisin Glaze

My little man is sick with a nasty cold, so we are having a jammie and movie day at my house. It is so pathetic when little ones don't feel good; it's just sad. Anyway, I am going to make this post short today; I just started the boy's favorite flick Cars, and I promised I would watch it with him while the twins are taking their morning nap. Sorry, but a sniffling and coughing 4 year old takes precedence over my blog post.

This is another quick and easy keeper from Martha Stewart. I didn't have the salmon "steaks" that the original recipe called for, but instead used the 6 ounce salmon fillets I had in my freezer. I reduced the cook time, and this fish recipe turned out perfect cooked and totally yummy. A side of Pioneer Woman's Sesame Noodles, mixed with veggies, completed our dinner. This was on our table in a half an hour!

Here is a link to the adapted noodle recipe:

The Result:
This was easy and delicious! Now back to our movie...
