Jan wanted something light for dinner. I went on-line for ideas and was surprised what some people—especially the diet cooking magazines—considered “light.” In my mind, anything with pasta is not “light” by definition, but easily a third of the recipes were some form of pasta and sauce.

I saw this meal as a Northwest Fusion, Northwest (US) cuisine with Asian influences. When I visit my sister, Karen, she usually makes a barbecued salmon. I thought it would go well with my wild rice and mushroom soup.
I had a craving for teriyaki salmon, but since it is a weekday I did not want to fire up the barbeque. Broiling in the oven is the obvious solution. This idea was met with cheers from my family. Steamed rice and pickled vegetables are the obvious go-together for a weekday Japanese meal.
I suggested salmon for Eilene’s and my dinner tonight. Eilene’s response was, “Salmon, salmon, salmon!” Jan, sadly, is still eating blended foods, so she having the left over scallop soup from two nights ago. I am also making mashed yams and Carolina coleslaw to go with tonight’s fish.
