Recipe: Omega-3-Rich Grilled Salmon Teriyaki
Salmon is high in heart healthy omega-3 fats and pairs well with zesty teriyaki sauce. Homemade teriyaki sauce is quick and easy to make, and unlike many bottled teriyaki sauces, this recipe relies on orange juice and maple syrup or honey for sweetness.
Makes four 6 oz servings.
1 1/2 lb. fresh salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces
¼ c. tamari (soy sauce)
1 c. orange juice
1 T. maple syrup or honey
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. fresh grated ginger or ½ tsp. ginger powder
2 cloves (2 tsp.) garlic, pressed or minced
• In a medium sized bowl, mix together the ingredients for the teriyaki sauce.
• Place the salmon in a shallow glass dish and pour the teriyaki sauce over the pieces.
• Refrigerate for at least two hours, or up to 24 hours.
• Turn the fish pieces over at least once.
• Preheat broiler. Remove fish from teriyaki sauce and place skin down on broiler pan.
• Broiling time varies depending on thickness of the fish, but in most cases fish is done in 10-12 minutes.
• If fish is thick, you may want to flip it once. Do not overcook.
• Serve over fresh wilted spinach.
