HONEY GINGER SALMON | QUICK SALMON RECIPE

A healthy way to add sweetness to your fish. This is my Honey Ginger Salmon Recipe and it is great for dinner or lunch! Very satisfying when eaten with a healthy portion of honey roasted potatoes. For a more filling dinner, couple this recipe with mashed sweet potatoes or brown rice. The juices from baking the fish makes a great sauce for your carbohydrate portion! Provided below is my step by step recipe with pictures as well as a video direction at the end. Enjoy!

Directions
1. The first thing to do is to thaw out your salmon in warm water if it is frozen.

2. Mix the honey with the soy sauce and give the mixture a stir. As the honey is dense, mix very well in order to fully incorporate.

3. Add in your spices. Don't forget to miss out the red pepper powder for a milder taste.

4. Now mix the ingredients together into a paste. Then add in your olive oil to loosen out the paste slightly.

5. Once your fish is thawed, transfer into the dish in which you will bake the fish. I used a ceramic baking dish in order to preserve more of the juices or fish sauce for my carbohydrate!

 6. Use your spoon to evenly spread out the paste onto the fish, making sure every part of the fish gets some marinade.

7. Allow the fish to marinate for 10 minutes in the fridge or at room temperature. At this point, also turn your oven on to 200 degree Celsius.

8. Once marinated, bake your fish for 15 to 20 minutes in the oven, depending on how cooked you want it. For instance, I wanted mine well done so I baked it for 20 minutes.

9. And your fish is ready! You can see there is a lot of juices which will be a great accompaniment for your fish if you have it with rice or potatoes.
