Tag! You're It!

I got tagged by my friend Ruth in a blogger cooking chain letter. It's not really a chain letter, hopefully I won't be getting a lot of stuff in the mail, but it is a fun game. The game involves me choosing an ingredient from the recipe she posted here and making a dish with that ingredient. I also need to tag 4 friends. The ingredient I chose is sugar! Sweet!

The recipe I'm sharing is from a Cooking Light magazine and it's fabulous and easy. We're actually eating it tonight! (I think I've made this for you Ruth!) This recipe uses brown sugar, not white like Ruth's recipe, but whatevs.

Sweet Orange Salmon
Eight ingredients combine in a spice rub that would also be good on pork tenderloin medallions. Serve with orange wedges.

2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
Cooking spray

Preheat broiler.
Combine first 8 ingredients in a small bowl. Rub spice mixture over both sides of salmon fillets. Place salmon on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil for 8 minutes or until salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork.
4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet)

So, I'm tagging Tamara because I know she'll make something fabulous, Karina who hopefully will find a recipe including bacon, Ashley a missionary in Russia who may treat us to some native cuisine, and Kim who has the cutest girlie twins ever!

Have fun ladies!

Alrighty then... can't turn down a challenge! HA!!

I think I will pick TWO of your ingredients. I'll post a recipe for salmon ceviche - using both orange & salmon. I made it this summer and it was Y-U-M-M-Y! Stay tuned Mama Gerlach!

Oh, how fun! I will try to post something soon. Actually, I have been telling EVERYONE about my favorite Russian cake ever. It is called Poncho cake and it is to die for. I want some right now! Here is a link to where I already posted it. I'll try to post it on our family blog to join in on the game soon.

Thanks for tagging me, Addie!
