Hi Cooped Up Cooking with Katie Fans!  Here are the 3 recipes featured in my most recent Facebook livestream:  HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO TRY A 4-WAY INGREDIENT DINNER?!  LOL.  Each of these recipes require just 4 ingredients!! My daughter Becca and I are doing our livestreams (just featured on NBC News!!) every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at 3pm PST.  Friend me here on Facebook to tune-in!



1 pound salmon, skin on

Zest and juice of 1 orange

1/4 cup hoisin sauce

1/4 cup lite soy sauce


Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine the last three ingredients in a small bowl. Place the marinade in a resealable gallon bag. Place the salmon into the bag and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Turn the salmon halfway.

Roast salmon on a sheet pan for approximately 15 minutes or until desired doneness.

While the salmon is cooking, pour the remaining marinade into a saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 14 minutes or until the marinade forms a glaze.

Serve immediately with Coconut Lime Rice.

Make the rice:  Rinse the rice in a large bowl with cool water until water runs clear. Drain rice.  Combine rice, coconut milk, 3/4 cup water and salt in a medium saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer and cook until rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, about 25 minutes. Stir in the lime juice and fluff with a fork.  Cover and keep warm.  Garnish with chopped cilantro if desired.
