Delicious is always hard work, right? Slaving away in a kitchen for hours, all for those few perfect bites of satisfaction… that's the cost of a tasty meal? Wrong! Sorry, we didn't mean to be rude there; we're just impatient to prove our point. Flaky, delicate salmon gets seared, then oven-roasted to perfection. Green beans are tossed with ginger and garlic, and teriyaki melds with the same flavors to make a sauce that tastes like hard work but is as simple as stirring. Topped with curled green onion garnish, this looks and tastes like it took you hours to make. Don't worry; we won't tell on you! Tip: Line 'em up! The best way to remove the ends of green beans is to line them up evenly, then remove them with one cut.
