The good thing about eating Salmon is being able to do so confidently: it's such an easy, healthy fish to cook with and can really be manipulated to hide fishy tastes! You really can't go wrong with this easy glaze, I cook this all the time when I need something made quick that doesn't look like such.

PREP TIME: 15 Minutes

COOK TIME: 30 Minutes (25 Bake, 5 Broil)

1. Let's Get Rid of the Reason You've Been Scared to Try Fish! 

Personal Photo

Start out by defrosting your salmon fillets and soaking them in milk for 10-20 minutes. I find more expensive pieces of Salmon don't require this as much, but cheaper frozen bags with smaller fillets usually do. This removes a lot of that fishy flavor that's hard to appreciate.

2. Prep Your Baking Sheet

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Take a baking sheet or a deep pan and line it with aluminum foil. I'll usually do a light layer of salt, pepper, and lemon juice on the foil just so the salmon isn't going down "dry". It adds a nice seasoning to the skin.

3. Prepare Your Marinade

While the oven is heating up, whisk and thoroughly mix in a bowl all glaze ingredients including the salt, pepper, mustard, lemon juice, soy sauce, honey, teriyaki sauce, olive oil, and brown sugar. I usually place the fillets in the glazed bowl for 10 minutes just for a quick "marinade".

4. Time to Marinade/Season Your Salmon!

Place the fillets on the foil and pour a gracious amount of glaze on top. Finish by sprinkling Parsley and/or Thyme seasoning on top, as well as a little more lemon juice. Additional salt and pepper can be added to taste.

5. Cook and ENJOY.

Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees or until fillets are cooked through. After, take some of the remaining glaze in the foil and baste the salmon, then broil at 525 degrees for three to five minutes.

Let cool, and serve!

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
