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.
