TERIYAKI SALMON Serves 4
Tips and tricks:
- Peeling ginger can be tedious. Save yourself the trouble, and grate it in its entirety over a small dish. When you have the desired amount, squeeze over your sauce ingredients—your dish will get the flavor it needs.
- Tamari soy sauce is a bit more costly but is well worth the investment. When it comes to healthy cooking and cutting fat, the flavor tamari affords makes all the difference.
- Many grocery stores sell frozen brown rice. It is precooked and ready to use. Get all of the nutritional benefits without the lengthy cook time.
- 1 pound salmon fillets
- ½ cup low-sodium tamari soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
- 1 ½ cups thawed apple juice concentrate
- ½ cup green onions, finely chopped
In a blender (or with an immersion blender) process all the ingredients except the salmon and onions. Add the onions. Place salmon in a baking dish, and pour marinade over evenly. Allow fish to marinate for 10 minutes to 1 hour. Grill or broil for 3 to 5 minutes on each side.
