Recipe of the Day

Honey-Soy Broiled Salmon

Recipe Insight:  A sweet, tangy and salty mixture of soy sauce, honey and rice vinegar performs double duty as marinade and sauce; it also keeps the salmon very flavorful and moist.
Leftover idea: Tuck leftover salmon into a whole wheat wrap for a tasty, nutritious lunch!

This recipe provides 4 servings.


1) 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
2) 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
3) 1 tablespoon honey
4) 2 scallion, minced
5) 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
6) 1 pound center-cut fillet, preferably, wild Pacific, skinned, cut into 4 portions
7) 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds


1) Whisk soy sauce, vinegar, honey, ginger and scallions in a medium bowl until the honey is dissolved. Place salmon in a sealable plastic bag, add 3 tablespoons of the sauce and refrigerate; let marinate for 15 mins. Save the remaining sauce.

2) Preheat broiler. Line a small baking pan with foil and coat with cooking spray.

3) Transfer the salmon to the pan, skinned-side down. (Discard the marinade.) Broil the salmon 4-6 inches from the heat source until cooked through, 7-10 mins. Drizzle with the reserved sauce and garnish with sesame seeds.
