Honey Soy Glazed Salmon

Yum

My post today is dedicated to Heart Disease Awareness.  It's a a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita’s Cocina.  Heart disease touches almost all our lives. I have personally lost two uncles and an aunt to this disease.   According to statistics at World Health Organization  cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the world.

Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic lost her Mom to heart disease when her mother was 47, and Kim was 15. Each year on the day her Mom passed she shares stories and photos of her Mom. This year she joined forces with Jen of Juanita's Cocina, whose life was also touched by heart disease when her Stepfather had a heart attack.  Jen's Stepfather is alive and well more than a decade later, and for that,  Jen is thankful every day. So today many of our blogger friends will share stories and recipes from our hearts to yours, in memory and honor of Momzie, Kim's Mom. We hope you will share your stories with us today as well.

I made a dish that is so easy anyone can pull this together.  It's a dish that you can eat any night of the week or even entertain with because it's just that good. I found this dish over at Eating Well,  a site dedicated to good food meeting good health.  I love Asian flavors and it really makes this simple (yet elegant) salmon taste fantastic.   Now I was so excited about making this dish I totally forgot the garnish of sesame seeds.  It was still fantastic... but next time I am totally getting sesame seeds to get the full experience.

Ingredients:

4 fillets of salmon (take 1lb salmon fillet cut it into four equal pieces)

For Marinade and sauce:
1 scallion, minced
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds

 

Directions:

Mix all marinade/sauce ingredients together and set aside.  Place salmon fillets into plastic storage bag then pour 3 Tbs of the marinade into bag. Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.   Reserve remaining sauce for later.

Heat broiler.  For easy clean up line a baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray. Place marinated salmon skin side down (do use marinade in bag). Broil 4-6 inches from the heat until cooked through.  Eating Well recommends 6-10 minutes.

Finally garnish each cooked salmon fillet with the reserved sauce and garnish with sesame seeds.

  3. Hubby loves salmon, but believe or not, I'm the one that holds back on that poor fish. I don't think I've ever had it prepared properly for me.....maybe one day you can rectify that with this? It looks amazing!
