Sweet Sesame Salmon

We love Salmon at our house. We usually try to eat some kind of a fish at least once a week.

If you like sesame salmon or even sesame chicken, then you will love this recipe for Sweet Sesame Salmon.

One of the best things about this recipe is the Homemade Teriyaki Sauce. I looked everywhere for GF Teriyaki Sauce, but I couldn’t find any. But thankfully I found an easy recipe for a homemade version that tastes even better than the store bought stuff. We Are Gluten Free has an amazing recipe for a homemade version of Gluten Free Teriyaki Sauce

But first let’s talk about Memorial Day! Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day.

Yesterday I didn’t take the time to pay tribute to Memorial Day. So I thought that I would take the time for that today. John 15:13 says “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” There are so many soldiers that have lost their lives protecting their country and they sure do deserve to be recognized. Let us never forget those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice by protecting our country.

There was a video presented on Sunday at church called “Just A Common Solider.” It was a great video and it really stuck with me. So I am sharing that same video with you. Hope you enjoy!
