Below is the recipe for 2 servings.
*choose organic and local if you can!
- 1/8 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp finely grated fresh ginger (I used ground ginger I had on hand)
- 1/2 tsp organic/local honey
- 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
- Extra-virgin olive oil
- Two 6-ounce wild-caught salmon fillets (mine had skins on the bottom since they were fresh from the market when I bought them)
- freshly ground pepper
- Cilantro leaves, for garnish (optional but good!)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In a small saucepan, combine soy sauce and ginger. Bring to a simmer and remove from heat. Stir in honey and dijon mustard.
- Season salmon with freshly ground pepper.
- Heat enough olive oil to coat the bottom of a large skillet. When the skillet is hot, add salmon, skin side up and cook over a medium/high heat until golden and crusty (about 2-3 minutes). Remove from heat, turn the salmon over, and spoon the ginger-soy glaze on top.
- Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for about 5 minutes, or until cooked to your liking.
- Transfer finished salmon to a plate and garnish with cilantro!
