Hail the Salmon!

I have so many recipes for quick and easy Salmon, it’s not even funny! It’s maybe because we eat it once a week in our house.. It’s the easiest thing you can make.. Dinner/lunch/breakfast !! Yeah, I am not kidding with you all when I say, I love Salmon and I have a ton of recipes for this fabulous fish… You can always substitute the recipe for any other fish but I love salmon in this just because it’s meaty enough to absorb the exploding flavor and won’t flake all over the place. Great for presentation too 😉 You know me.. I eat with my eyes first 🙂 Enjoy!

“The” marinade
Umm Salmon “bathing” in the marinade
Boiling the red rice in an open stockpot for about 10-12 minutes.
Drain to remove extra water.
Salmon in a “foil boat” ready for baking
For about a pound , pound and a half of organic Salmon cut into 6-8 Oz. filets
1/2″ ginger root peeled and grated
1 Tbsp OO
1 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp Orange juice
1 Tbsp Soy sauce
1 Tsp red chili flakes, optional (to add some heat)
Salt and black pepper to taste
Mix all the above. Marinate the salmon in this mixture for 20 min in the fridge.
Bake in a preheated oven uncovered at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes for every inch of thickness.  When using a foil wrap, bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Broil the last 2-3 minutes to get a char on top of the fish. 
Something sweet, something spicy! Please feel free to “up” the quantities of the marinade as per personal preference.
