Asian Salmon

1 side salmon fillet cut in steaks (I got 5 steaks out of it)

2 T. spicy brown mustard
3 T. soy sauce
6 T. Olive oil
1/2 t. garlic
1/4 t. grated ginger
2-4 drops sesame oil

Mix marinade and pour half over salmon. Let sit in marinade 10-20 min. Put some foil on cookie sheet, spray with cooking spry and lay salmon on foil skin side down. Broil for 10 min in oven (this is what I did since we don't have a grill) or grill on grill for 4-5 min per/side.
Once out of oven or grill, pour remaining sauce over fish and let sit for a few min. then serve.

1 1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cup brown sugar (cream together - I always cut the sugar in half to 3/4 cup of each kind of sugar and it's plenty sweet)
1 1/2 cup sugar

3 eggs
1 TBS. Mexican Vanilla (add)

3 cups flour
1 TBS. baking soda
1 TBS. baking powder (add)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 TBS. cinnamon

3 cups rolled oats
2 cups flaked coconut
3 cups milk chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans (or as many as you like)

Bake at 350 degrees F. or 180 degrees C. for 7-9 min or until under done. With my oven, I cook it only 7 minutes. It will seem like it is raw, but once it is cooled, it will be perfect. You can freeze these soon after they are baked and then let them thaw for future enjoyment!
