Balsamic Glazed Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2013
This was pretty good. A couple of things I found. You're going to want to be careful with how much olive oil you use while baking the salmon, because that will make it difficult for the sauce to stay on it. If you use a lot maybe the thing to do would be to quickly pat off the extra oil. Second, I found it a little less flavorful than I was expecting. Maybe bump up the orange a little, and be sure to really let the sauce reduce until it's quite concentrated. Finally, I think it might help if you put the sauce on the salmon and then popped it under the broiler quickly, to form a bit of a crust.

Mexicali Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
This recipe was very tasty, and a nice change from more "typical" pork chop recipes. Following the advice of other users, I used chili powder, salt, and pepper on the veggies, added garlic, and added beans (kidney beans worked really well). However, I also marinated the pork chops for about two hours in olive oil, chili powder, garlic powder, and onion powder. This worked very nicely, and I think the meat would have been rather bland without this step. Last suggestion, be sure to drain all the caned veggies really well, as I ended up with more liquid in the baking dish than is preferable. All in all, I'll definitely make this again.
