Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon

Six Servings

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

  1. Pour half of the prepared Ginger-Honey Marinade into a bowl and cool slightly. Keep the other half warm.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
