I am constantly on the look-out for delicious and, more importantly, easy recipes for preparing fish. You always read that you should be feeding your kids fish twice weekly…for me, that’s not all that easy. I just don’t have that many recipes for fish and the ones I do have are quite elaborate and not very kid-friendly.
Last week, I stumbled across this recipe and had to try it right away. It requires just a few simple ingredients, most of which I already had in the pantry, and very little time. I’ve already cooked it twice, and definitely plan on making this a regular in our recipe rotation!
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons ginger, finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tablespoon rice or cider vinegar
- 4 salmon filets, skinless
- sesame seeds
- green onions
- In a small bowl combine honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and vinegar and whisk together.
- Wash the salmon filets with cold water and pat dry. Place the filets in a zip-lock bag or a shallow dish, and pour in the marinade.
- Marinate for about 15 minutes.
- Turn on the oven to pre-heat the broiler.
- Place the salmon on a foil lined cookie sheet and broil 4-6 inches from the heat for about 7-9 minutes depending on the thickness of the filets. Salmon is done when opaque and easily flakable with a fork.
- Sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped green onions, if you like, and serve.
