My mother has been visiting this past weekend. One of my mother’s china patterns is Blue Danube. She has replaced the teapot a couple of times because a piece broke off of the spout. We have often talked about turning the damaged teapot into a lamp.
It is a beautiful lamp. Did you know you can turn almost anything into a lamp? Here is a good tutorial:
I think that Blue Danube Teapot would make a lovely Blue Danube lamp! What do you think?
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 4 6-ounce salmon fillets
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 fresh pineapple
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
- 2 cups cooked white rice
1. Heat broiler. Whisk together the maple syrup and mustard in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
2. Place the salmon in a foil-lined 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Season with the salt and pepper. Slice the peel from the pineapple half and cut it lengthwise into quarters, then cut each quarter into 1/2-inch-thick triangles. Scatter the pineapple and jalapeño around the salmon. Brush the salmon with the syrup mixture.
3. Broil for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily when pricked with a fork and the inside is the same color throughout. Serve the salmon and pineapple with the rice and drizzle with the remaining glaze, if desired.
