Just 6 ingredients, this wholesome dish is light, healthy, and super easy. 

Ingredients
For the glaze:
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce or Bragg’s liquid aminos
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed or minced
For the complete meal:
  • Ginger glaze recipe from above, divided
  • 4 Alaska salmon fillets (4oz-5oz each)
  • Optional for topping: chopped pecans, chopped parsley or chopped cilantro and sesame seeds
  • Roasted or steamed veggies or a side salad
Instructions
For the ginger glaze:
  1. Add all glaze ingredients to a small jar with a lid and shake vigorously to combine. 

For the salmon with glaze:
  1. Add 1/4 cup glaze to large baggie with salmon fillets and allow salmon to marinate for about 30 mins. Be sure to reserve glaze for pouring over salmon during cooking.

  2. Spray large skillet with a generous amount of cooking spray or about 1/2 tablespoon olive or avocado oil and heat over medium to high heat. Add salmon fillets, skin side down, cover with lid (or use a baking sheet to cover the skillet) and cook at a high heat for about 3 mins. Remove lid, flip salmon, pour glaze from baggie over the top of the salmon and cook for another few minutes and until salmon is cooked through.

  3. Remove salmon from skillet and to plate with veggies or salad. I like to use the remaining glaze in the jar for a vinaigrette, about 1-2 tablespoons per serving. Feel free to add chopped parsley and sesame seeds to top salmon. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*For my veggies, you see pictured, (and to feed 4) I used 4 cups shredded cabbage, 3 cups cauliflower rice, 4 cups broccoli florets, 8 mini peppers, all pan-fried in a skillet and then topped the veggies with 2 cups fresh rainbow mix micro greens. 

**Nutritional information includes glaze, but does not include veggie sides.
