When my girls were little, they were hooked on the Berenstain Bears children's books by Stan and Jan Berenstain. This furry foursome presents wholesome life lessons with a good dose of humor and is a big hit with the preschool set. As with many preschool literary faves, parents initially love them too, but quickly get sick of the repetitive bedtime readings. Mama Bear, Papa Bear, Sister Bear and Brother Bear love a feast of barbecued salmon and honeycomb and we got our kids to love eating fish, Berenstain style, at an early age. Here's our recipe for:
1-1/2 lbs. salmon fillets
1/4 cup wheat-free soy sauce
1/2 tsp. powdered ginger or 1 (1 inch) piece of ginger, peeled and grated
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. sesame oil
Wash and pat dry salmon fillets. Place in oiled glass baking pan skin side down. Mix remaining ingredients and pour over salmon. Marinate at least an hour before cooking. Broil in oven for about 20 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through.
Serves 4 hungry bears.
