I love to cook - especially ethnic dishes, and from scratch/my pantry. I love foods that combine surprising tastes and textures, and my interests are fairly eclectic. I'm excited to have a site to direct people to when they ask for my recipes!

Barbara's Brazilian Salmon
This recipe comes from my friend Barbara, and it is our family's favorite. Seeing as my husband doesn't like fish, but asks for this one - it really is that good!
4 salmon fillets (5-6 oz)
1/2 large orange, juice only (or orange juice)
1/2 large lemon, juice only (or 2-3 T. lemon juice)
2 T. brown sugar
1 T. chili powder
1 large garlic clove (minced)
2 T. melted butter
Marinate salmon in orange juice, lemon juice, salt and pepper for 20 minutes at room temperature (or longer).
Preheat oven to 425*
Mix brown sugar, chili powder and garlic together in a small bowl; rub well into marinated salmon. Grease a foil lined baking sheet with a bit of the melted butter and place rubbed salmon on top. Then drizzle with remaining butter and any remaining marinade.
Cover with foil and bake for 25 +/- minutes - until salmon flakes with a fork.
