Spicy Glazed Salmon and Sweet Spicy Corn

Tonight was "Spice Night" at our house. We really like our spice! The salmon had a spicy sweet Jalapeno glaze and the corn was spiced up with cayenne.

Spiced Salmon Glaze

1 tsp (or more) chopped fresh jalapeno
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp soy sauce
1 inch piece ginger, peeled
1/2 lims squeezed
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
Chop in mini chopper the jalapeno, ginger, garlic. Add soy sauce, sesame oil and lime juice and pulse until everything is well blended. Add the salt and pepper.

Season salmon filet with salt and pepper. In a skillet brown 1 lb salmon filet on unskinned side. PLace in casserole dish and pour sauce over. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 min until salmon is firm but not overcooked.

Spicy Corn
 corn cut from 3 ears of fresh corn
1 tbsp butter
1 clove gasrlic, smashed
1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne
juice from half a lime
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cracked black pepper

Saute the corn in butter for 3 min, add salt, pepper,garlic and cayenne. Saute for additional 3 min, then turn off heat and add lime juice. Serve warm with salmon.

This meal was perfect with romaine and fresh tomatoes from the garden salad, drizzle with balsamic vinegar and a little olive oil.
