Ingredients and Preparation

Ingredients Measures
Fresh ginger root, grated 1 tablespoon
Garlic clove, minced 1
Honey 1 tablespoon
Soy sauce 2 tablespoons
Orange juice 2 tablespoons
Salmon filets 2 (5-ounce)
Green onions, chopped 2

Directions

  1. Mix together ginger, garlic, honey, soy sauce, and orange juice. Place fish and marinade into a resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to overnight.
  2. Preheat broiler (on low setting if your broiler has an option) and position the oven rack about 4 inches below the heat.
  3. Remove fish from bag, reserving marinade, and place skin-side up on a broiling rack coated with nonstick cooking spray. Broil fish for about 2 minutes, then remove from oven and pull the skin off with tongs. Baste with marinade and return to oven. After another 2-3 minutes, turn fish over and broil another 4-5 minutes. Fish will flake easily when done.
  4. When fish is done, garnish with the green onion and enjoy!
