Salmon with Roasted Broccoli and Seasoned Potatoes

Fancy cooking on a Wednesday night?  What has gotten into us, you say?  Nothing really.  Just wanted something different.  Don't be jealous.  You can do it, too!  Here are the recipes Ben and I used to make this yummy meal:

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon
6 (5oz). salmon fillets
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon white wine
4 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
4 tablespoon Dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease a broiling pan.  Arrange salmon on the pan and sprinkle salt and pepper on each fillet.  Set aside. Pour a little olive oil into a small sauce pan over medium heat. Cook garlic until soft, 3 minutes or so.  Add white wine, honey, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper.  Simmer 3 minutes or until slightly thickened.  Brush fillets with balsamic glaze.  Bake for 10-14 minutes.  Brush with remaining glaze before serving.  Recipe.

Oven Roasted Broccoli
1 pound broccoli, rinsed and trimmed
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 gloves of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
large handful of shredded cheddar

Pre-heat oven to 425. Cut broccoli into bite sized pieces. Cut stalk into slices.  In a mixing bowl, add broccoli, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.  Mix and set aside.  Spread bread crumbs on a 13x9 pan and place in oven for 5 minutes or until toasted.  Remove bread crumbs from oven and add them to the bowl with broccoli mixture.  Lightly toss.  Return mixture to pan and place in oven until broccoli is tender - 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and toss with cheese.  Alton Brown's recipe.

Seasoned and Roasted Potatoes
7 medium gold potatoes
seasoned salt
onion powder
chopped garlic
olive oil

Clean and cut potatoes into cubes.  Add to 13x9 dish. Pour olive oil over potatoes.  Stir to make sure potatoes are well-coated.  Sprinkle seasoned salt, onion powder (somewhat generously).  Stir and sprinkle again.  Add chopped garlic and stir.  Place in oven on 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.  Poke with a fork to make sure they are soft (but not too soft).  Remove from oven and serve.
