365: No Repeats: Lime-and-Honey Glazed Salmon with Warm Black Bean and Corn Salad

We've returned from our Hill Country adventure. Sadly, Nature foiled our pumpkin patch plan. It poured all night on Saturday, so for some reason that I don't understand, the patch was closed "due to weather" on Sunday. Guess pumpkins don't like mud. We had fun in the mud, though, which is something we couldn't have done in dry old Corpus Christi. Pumpkins or not, we managed to find Fall.
I'm trying to scour this cookbook for veggie-laden meals. This is no easy task. Lime-and-Honey Glazed Salmon with Warm Black Bean and Corn Salad (pg. 253) was healthy (spinach, red onion, and red bell pepper are in there too), but it lacked oomph. The subtle flavor of the salmon, marinated for a bit in honey, lime juice, and chili powder, was quite nice. The salad was under-seasoned, though.

Conclusion: Just okay. This wasn't bad, but there was nothing interesting about it.


  1. The lime and honey glaze sounded promising. Sorry it didn't turn out more interesting.

  2. Honey - if you think THAT is mud - you should come to my back yard!
    Spring, and we are ankle deep in water... we are thinking of planting rice :-)
    Your little guy would have a blast, but we would have to hose him down before we could let him inside :-)

  3. PS I've sent you an award. Details in my last post XO
