WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD

I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected.

ORANGE TERIYAKI GLAZED SALMON FILET

1/3 cup sugar-free orange marmalade

3 tbsp teriyaki marinade
1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 lb salmon filet, approximately 1-inch thick

In a small saucepan combine the orange marmalade, the teriyaki marinade, and the fresh pepper. Stir the mixture together over low heat until the marmalade is melted and the mixture is well combined. Allow mixture to cool to room temperature. Take out 3 tablespoons of sauce and set the rest aside.

Place the salmon with the skin side down in a glass baking dish. Brush the 3 tablespoons of the sauce of the top of the salmon. Marinade in the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes.

Prepare the grill for direct cooking by oiling the grid. Grill the salmon over medium-high heat for 5 minutes on each side or until the salmon begins to flake with a fork. Serve with the remaining sauce.
