Salmon has become my fish of choice. I love the creamy texture and it lends itself to being marinated so well. This honey and soy sauce marinade has got to be the best flavor for salmon. If you are dieting or just feel like you want a healthier diet in general then fish recipes should be way up on your agenda.
What you need
4 salmon fillets (about 200g each)
2 spring onions finely chopped
100ml light soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
splash of boiling water
2-3cm piece of finely grated ginger
Sesame seeds to sprinkle on top
Dissolve the honey in a little boiling water and then Combine all the marinade ingredients together in a bowl and whisk to infuse all of the flavors.
Place the salmon fillets in a flat dish and pour over the marinade and set aside for 20-30 minutes. You can also place them in a plastic ziploc bag, pour in the marinade and leave for about 20minutes.
Place the fillets on a baking tray lined with tin foil in the oven at 200 Celsius for about 10 minutes or until slightly undercooked. Then drizzle over the rest of the marinade and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
Remove and serve immediately with some lightly stir fried vegetables and sprinkle with a few sesame seeds.
A word of warning. You must line the baking tray or it will blacken.
If you are not dieting, serve it with Eton mess… you will not be sorry.
