Asian Ginger Dressing
This is AWESOME! I make this and leave it in the fridge and use it on everything! It is really good on fresh sliced avocados. I use it to marinade chicken, or ahi tuna before searing the tuna. I also add 1 teaspoon of sesame oil because I like the flavor the sesame oil adds.

The Real Mojito
Thanks for the recipe. I liked it a lot. It was fine to me with just the granulated sugar but it did not dissolve like I would have liked, even shaking it like crazy. (if you are going to shake it, don't shake it with the club soda, add the club soda after shaking). Next time I will try to use the simple syrup like others suggested.

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating
This is wonderful. I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil instead of butter to make it healthier. I also used Panko bread crumbs so it would be lighter. I mixed in a little olive oil into the bread crumb mixture to make them stick together a little better. I used a filet with the skin on and seared the filet, skin side down, in a pan on the stove before I put it in the oven to make the skin crispy, the fish comes off of the skin better when eating it.
