Teriyaki Baby Back Ribs

Ribs, ribs and more ribs. Okay, so you may be wondering how many rib recipes can there possibly be in the world. Well, the short answer is a lot! Granted, my family does not eat ribs often but when we do I like to try different sauces instead of using bbq sauce all of the time.

Teriyaki Back Back Ribs are a new favorite flavor whenever we get tired of traditional bbq and don’t feel like firing up the grill. Ribs can taste great whether you char them on the grill or bake them in the oven. One is just less time consuming to prepare. Baking ribs means you can do minimal work up front then stick them in the oven to bake low and slow. After that you can move on to doing something else productive like blogging.

If you like Asian flavors, you will enjoy Teriyaki Baby Back Ribs. P. F. Chang has become my  favorite teriyaki sauce because of the subtle hint of garlic, the slight tang of ginger and the sweetness of brown sugar. I use it as a marinade, glaze for pork, chicken or salmon and for a teriyaki brown rice side dish I recently made.

Whatever brand of teriyaki sauce you decide to use you cannot go wrong making a rack of ribs with a teriyaki twist.

Teriyaki Salmon

Teryaki Salmon 5

Does anyone else out there have a “go to” meal? I think everyone should have at least one meal they can pull out of their mental file and know it will be perfect without much fuss. My “go to” meal is teriyaki salmon with noodles and sauteed asparagus.

Salmon. What can I say about salmon? Besides being one of the healthiest fish to eat because of the omega 3 fatty acids it provides, salmon tastes fantastic! Just a few seasonings and lemon brings out the natural flavor of salmon. Adding a nice teriyaki sauce just enhances the flavors and brightens up the fish. I have tried a lot of different teriyaki sauces but have fallen in love with a spicy teriyaki sauce from Culinary Circle called Shanghai -Inspired Five Spice Teriyaki Marinade & Dipping Sauce. The sesame and ginger in this sauce are well balanced and does not overpower the salmon.

There are several types of salmon (pink salmon, king salmon, sockeye and more) each with a different taste, coloring and fat content. Pink salmon is the most common and has a lower fat content than others like king salmon which has a very high fat content. I prefer pink salmon and look for well marbled fillets which helps keep the salmon moist while cooking. To add another layer of moisture buy salmon with the skin still in tact which will also retain moisture in the fish. No matter what type of salmon you choose it takes less than 30 minutes to prepare and will be both delicious and healthy. So if you need a “go to” meal to add to your mental file for a quick and easy dinner, think about teriyaki salmon. Your family and friends will love it.
