If you are a regular reader of this blog you have probably noticed I haven't posted anything with fish in it.
It is not my favorite.
Unless it's raw. Or a crustacean. Or made into a fish stick with a lot of tarter sauce.
Cooked fish is just so...fishlike. I am generally not a fan. My husband on the other hand could eat fish every day of his life.
After a recent trip to Japan (much more on that later) and a large consumption of fish and fish products I figured it was time to try out one of those floppy creatures in my own kitchen.
As a non lover of cooked fish things, this was pretty good. Chances are if you have a family member who is as hesitant about fish as I am, this may be worth a try.
The sauce is really flavorful. Soy sauce, ginger and honey make a sticky crust on the outside of the salmon. It's really nice and makes the fish really tender. This is also so simple to prepare, it even works in a toaster oven!
1 pound of salmon
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 inch of fresh grated ginger (1 teaspoon ground ginger would also work)
4 tablespoons honey
Combine the sauce ingredients in a large plastic bag. Let the salmon marinate in the bag for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, place the salmon and the sauce into an oven safe dish.
Bake the fish at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until the fish just starts to flake apart.
The fish went really well over a bed of fluffy rice along side some sauteed cabbage.
