We all know that eating healthy included eating fish at least once a week. Fish need not be deep fried or beer battered to be delicious. Baked or pan seared are healthy and delicious options.
When I was in the hospital for the second time following my open heart surgery, one of the most delicious meals I ate was salmon. My feeling is if a hospital kitchen can serve up a flavorful, healthy salmon, we sure as heck can.
Honey Glazed Ginger Salmon
4 Salmon Fillets (6 oz each)
Pepper to taste
2 teaspoons fresh Ginger, minced
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
2 tablespoons Honey
Green Onion, sliced for garnish
Season salmon with pepper. Set aside.
Finely mince fresh ginger and place into a small mixing bowl.
Mince garlic, add to the bowl with the ginger.
Add Soy Sauce, Maple Syrup and honey to the bowl. Whisk until well blended. Set aside.
Heat a heavy bottom pan over medium heat. Oil lightly with olive oil to prevent fish from sticking.
Place seasoned salmon in the pan, skin side up, over medium heat. Cook, covered, until fish begins to flake easily with a fork, about 5 minutes.
Carefully turn salmon skin-side down. Brush with sauce and continue to cook another 5 minutes.
Pour any remaining sauce over the salmon to heat through. Slice green onions, plate and garnish before serving.
