We LOVE salmon in this house, but with this recipe just about any nice fish would do...thick cod, halibut and sea bass all come to mind!
Don't allow the, "blackness" on top of the fish to fool you, this Broiled Salmon with Miso Glaze is cooked perfectly! Miso (a thick paste made from fermented soy beans) is a staple in Japanese cooking. Slightly "charring" miso only enhances its uniquely savory and sweet....earthy delicious flavor!

Fine. So she won't win any beauty pageants, but she sure is nice and comforting...like a Snuggie.

So I did it again.
I brought home Libby's PUMPKIN PIE MIX instead of Libby's PURE PUMPKIN. I'm good for this mistake about once a year. I guess I am my mother's daughter. Her, "achilles' heel"...COLA.
