Quick and Easy Broiled Salmon with Honey and Soy
Good salmon is such a great part of any healthy diet—I absolutely love it. I found some great line caught Alaskan salmon in the store, and decided to Asian it up a bit. This marinade/sauce is so flavorful—it really complements the flavors of salmon perfectly. It’s a little salty, a little sweet, and the ginger and garlic really pull it all together.
It’s important to marinate the fish so it can soak up all that flavor. 30 minutes is optimal, but if you’re pressed for time, 15 will do the trick. Broiling salmon is my favorite way to cook it—the high heat cooks it quickly and evenly, and there’s no need to flip the fish. This recipe is really simple, but the exotic flavors will make anyone think you worked on it for hours.
