Salmon with Soy Ginger Glaze

Just thinking about this salmon makes my mouth water.  The glaze gives it a salty-sweet glossiness that is so appealing.  Salmon is a great fish for kids since it is generally very mild.  Atlantic salmon is usually the mildest and a little lighter in color than Pacific salmon.  Chinook is another mild salmon, but often very expensive.  Sockeye is usually the most “fishy” so I would avoid it if you are serving this to kids. Serves 4

  • 1/4 C. soy sauce
  • 1 T. honey
  • 1 t. grated, fresh ginger
  • 1/4 C. mirin
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 1/2 lb.s salmon filet cut into four pieces

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.  Combine all the ingredients and marinate the salmon for ten minutes.  Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.  Place the salmon on the baking sheet and reserve the marinade.  Bake the salmon for 10 minutes.  Meanwhile bring the reserved marinade to a boil and reduce by half.  Brush the thickened marinade over the salmon and return in to the oven.  Switch to broil and broil on high for one minute.
