This recipe features an exotic blend of citrus and tamari, with all the nutritional benefits of omega-3s!
- 1 1/2 lb salmon fillets (4 equal portions)
- 1/3 cup dry white wine
- 2 tbsp low-sodium tamari
- 1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
- 3 tbsp ginger (peeled and grated)
- 1/4 cup chopped scallions
- 1/2 tsp olive oil (extra virgin)
- 1 tsp raw honey
- Rinse fillets and pat them dry.
- Combine white wine, tamari, orange juice, green onions, honey, and ginger in a bowl and whisk them until they form a well-blended marinade.
- Place fillets in a baking pan with the pink flesh facing up. Pour the marinade evenly over all fillets. Cover pan with foil or plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 4-6 hours.
- When you're ready to cook, remove fillets from refrigerator while you preheat your broiler.
- Remove excess scallions and ginger from the fillets, and brush the scaled side of each fillet with extra virgin olive oil.
- Place fillets, skin down, on broiling pan.
- Broil fillets on high heat for 10 minutes, or until cooked through. The flesh should be slightly brown on top, and firm, flaky, and light pink throughout.
Here are some more tips for putting together exciting and healthy recipes:
* Try new meats. Veal, lamb, and bison are ultra-lean and full of flavor.
* Add color to your recipes. A balanced diet should contain plenty of colorful fruits and vegetables. Take this opportunity to try new varieties of produce.
* Use whole-grain rice and pasta. Whole grain products provide plenty of fiber and keep blood sugar spikes to a minimum. Many dieters also find them to be heartier and more satisfying than regular white flour products.
