I have an idea and hopefully I have twenty some years to get it done. I'll need that much time! I want to make a cookbook for my children. Thus the name My Mama's Food. It has several meanings, for the entries in my journal it will mean me, my children's Mama. For me it means my dear Mom, their Mama Lu, for most of the recipes come from her and my grandma's and great grandmas. I do most of my cooking without a recipe, but sometimes they just need to be written down if we do not want them to be lost for future generations. When I left home I would have treasured a book like this, written by my Mom, so I want to try and do it for my children. I want to include photos of the kids helping me in the kitchen as they grow and eat what we make. What memories they will have when cooking in their own kitchen's and teaching their children to cook and sharing these memories with them and showing them pictures of themselves learning to cook with their Mama. I think it's a grand idea, now if I can pull it off!

Glazed Salmon Steaks

This is my favorite way to make salmon, fresh is the best, Atlantic. Farm raised is not so good.

1/2 Cup soy sauce
1/3 Cup dry sherry
1 garlic clove
8 (4oz) salmon steaks (or whatever you have!)
1/3 Cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbls honey
2 tsp oil

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a large heavy duty zip lock bag. Add fish and coat. Marinate in refigerator for at least1 hour, turning bag occasionally.

Remove fish from bag, reserving 3 Tbls of marinade. Combine reserved marinade, with brown sugar, oil and honey in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil and sugar dissolves.

Grill outdoors or indoors or in a frying pan. Baste occasionally while cooking. Fish is done when it is flakes easily. Serve remaining sauce at the table. Enjoy!
