I am hosting this month and asked the others to join me in honoring Elvis Presley.  Let's take a look at what the others brought to the table today.......

I have to admit that when I think of Elvis I certainly don't think of anything healthy.  Elvis was a good ol' country boy from Memphis who loved his fried foods.  He was not only the King of Rock n Roll but he was the King of indulgence.

So I was pretty pleased when reading an article in Taste of Home that mentioned that Elvis served up this Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon at his wedding for those not interested in Fried Chicken or Suckling Pig.

My husband, who is not a Salmon fan, loved the glaze on this dish and enjoyed the meal.  My Angel Face, who loves Salmon,  hated the glaze saying she only likes sweet food that is supposed to be sweet.  Evidently Salmon is not one of those foods.  She wiped the glaze off as best she could.  Next time I will know to leave the glaze off of her piece.

  1. Awww. Just tell her it's teryaki, lol! I read that same Taste of Home article too. Next time I'm making salmon (which is often), I'm doing it this way.

  2. That glaze sounds wonderful, Wendy! I will be trying it as well as we love sweet and savory together. I'm glad to hear that Elvis allowed salmon for his wedding feast. Some articles I came across said he wouldn't allow fish to be cooked at Graceland because he didn't like the smell. The wedding reception must have been offsite. 🤣

    1. Yes, but I also read an article that said Fried Catfish was one of his favorite foods. We may never know the full truth of the legend known as the King.

  3. I love all those flavors in the Salmon!
