A friend of mine gave me a whole bunch of fresh thyme that came from her garden. I just love the smell and aroma of thyme in my kitchen and have been using it a lot in my cooking. In fact, I just used them on Tuesday when I cooked salmon for dinner. The salmon was seasoned with a mixture of honey, white wine vinegar, extra virgin oil, chopped fresh thyme and minced garlic and then poached in the oven for 25 minutes. The salmon turned out tender, moist and succulent. I also love the accumulated juices; it was sweet and tasty. I never thought salmon, honey and thyme together could be this good. My family and I truly enjoyed this delicious and healthy salmon dish.
