Our grocery store has salmon and peaches on sale this week. Together they make a lovely summer meal bursting with flavor.
While the salmon is baking, prepare a peach salsa. If you like, make a pot of rice as a bed for the salmon. In thirty minutes you'll be ready to eat.
After preparing this meal using ready-made teriyaki sauce, I got to thinking that I would like to make my own. After a few searches, I came up with a tasty and easy version that I will be sharing on both chicken and burgers. ooh... so good!
