Soy Ginger Salmon

With warm weather making a welcome arrival, lighter dinner meals are on the menu. Fish is a low fat source of protein and filled with omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Omega-3s benefit heart and brain health and aren’t produced by our bodies, so it’s important to get them through foods (like salmon, tuna, flax seeds and walnuts). This asian-inspired salmon dish provides a nice flavor change and is light and healthy. It would pair well with a side of grains like quinoa, couscous or brown rice, but is quite filling starch-free.

Ingredients
1 salmon filet
1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon mined ginger
1/2 tablespoon honey
 5 brussel sprouts, halved

3 stalks broccoli, chopped

1/2 cup mushrooms

Steps
Preheat oven to 350 degress
Mix soy sauce, honey and ginger
Pour mixture over salmon, let marinade for 20 minutes
Wrap salmon in foil loosely to form a pouch, place in the oven for ~20 minutes
Sautee the veggies in oil, drizzle with soy sauce

Remove salmon from the oven when it flakes with a fork
