Tonight's Dinner

Again, the bf and I are obsessed with Costco. Everything we had for dinner tonight (grilled salmon, mashed potatoes, and steamed broccoli) all came from Costco and turned out awesome! Paddy is still licking the deck from a piece of the salmon that fell off the grill! I've also decided to start taking/posting pictures of all of my dishes. Let me know if you like this idea!

Grilled Salmon:
2-4 medium sized salmon fillets (the bf and I bought one huge fillet and portioned it out because it's cheaper that way)
1/4 cup Soy Vay Very Teriyaki Sauce

Marinate the salmon in the soy vay for about 20 minutes. While the potatoes are cooking, heat up either a tabletop or outdoor grill. Make sure to either spray the salmon or the grill with cooking spray or olive oil prior to grilling to prevent sticking. The salmon is ready when it is opaque and flaky.

Mashed Potatoes: (serves 2-4)
2 large baking potatoes peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons butter
3/4 small container light sour cream
1/4 cup milk (or less depending on how you like your potatoes)
2 teaspoons granulated garlic
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons salt (or more depending on your taste)
2 teaspoons pepper

In a medium size pot bring the potatoes and water to a boil. Cook until fork tender. Drain well and return potatoes to pot. Add butter, sour cream, milk, cheese, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix well with a hand mixer (this makes for extremely creamy and fluffy mashed potatoes). Taste and adjust seasonings. Add a little bit more butter and cheeese and allow to melt on top from the heat of the potatoes.

Steamed Broccoli:
2 cups frozen broccoli florets
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Bring the water, salt, pepper, and olive oil to a boil. Add the broccoli and steam until just done (the broccoli should be bright green and firm).
