The combination of honey and orange juice gives the salmon a lovely glaze. To prevent the salmon from sticking, brush or spray oil generously on the grill and use a firm hand with your spatula. I like to make any leftovers into a main-dish salad the next day for lunch or dinner.
1 recipe Ginger-Honey Marinade
6 Salmon steaks, weighing about 6 ounces each and about 1-inch thick, rinsed and drained
3 tablespoons virgin olive oil
- Pour half of the prepared Ginger-Honey Marinade into a bowl and cool slightly. Keep the other half warm.
- Put the salmon in one layer on a shallow pan, pour half the marinade mixture on top and turn the fish so that all sides are covered. Cover with plastic wrap for 30 minutes. Place the salmon on a cookie sheet or pan that has been covered with aluminum foil.
- Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Place the salmon on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until salmon flakes when prodded with a fork. Remove and serve. Carefully slide the fish off the pan and serve with the remaining marinade spooned on top of each hot steak. Serve with a stir-fried geen vegetable and steamed rice or quinoa.
*Eating oily fish three times per week may reduce the risk of heart disease and blood clots. I prefer wild salmon when available, but you can also use trout or Atlantic char.
