Fresh Coho Salmon-- two six-ounces pieces cost about $11.00... not bad, for Whole Foods!
On a whim, I also decided to make coconut rice as a side dish-- and if I had snow peas, I would served them as a perfect accompaniment. Alas, I didn't, but I served wilted spinach and the last of Brussel sprouts (which my husband loves, and I like).
The rice is pretty easy to make, and I started it, first. It takes about 30 minutes to make. I used 1 3/4 cups water, 1/2 cup Lite Coconut Milk (I always keep this on hand), and 3 Tbsp. of Sweet Chili Sauce. Sweet Chili Sauce is pretty easy to find-- usually it's in the international section at your local grocery store. I've spotted it at Trader Joe's, too.
I pour the coconut milk into simmering water, add the chili sauce (you can add less if you don't want much of a "kick"- though chili sauce isn't super hot, anyway. Bring the liquids to a boil, add the rice, cover the pot and cook on low for about 20 minutes. After that, let it sit for about 10 minutes...
Now, for the glaze sauce:
Here's where I adapted Mary's recipe to be my fool-proof way of cooking salmon. In an oven-proof skillet, I use a light coating of olive oil and heat it on medium-high, until the oil is shimmering...
I'm so glad you asked! I wilted fresh spinach in a garlic-infused olive oil-- I love spinach!

Mary, thanks for posting this recipe. It was excellent, and definitely plan to use this glaze sauce recipe again. In fact, I think it would delicious without wasabi, if someone doesn't have it on hand. I have no idea why I had an unopened tube of wasabi, but I'm glad that I did. This is for you!
