Asian Grilled Salmon

Last week when I posted about the food we eat, I promised a recipe for Asian Grilled Salmon.  Chris and I happen to love fish and salmon.  However, if you hate salmon, hear me out – because this recipe really masks the fishy flavor quite a bit – you might be able to eat it! :)

This recipe is so easy, super delicious, and unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard by now that salmon is amazingly good for you.  Wild-caught is always preferable to farmed fish. 

Credit for this kinda goes to my friend Erin, who made a stir-fry for me once with these ingredients.  I just made it into a marinade!  Thanks Erin. :)

Asian Grilled Salmon
(again, it’s approximate – go with the flow!)

4-6 pieces of salmon
soy sauce (I like low-sodium)
a few spoonfuls of minced garlic 
a few shakes of ground ginger
a few squeezes of lime juice

Put salmon in the bottom of a Ziploc bag and pour all ingredients over the fish.  Seal bag and mix all ingredients together from the outside.  Allow to marinate for half an hour or longer in the refrigerator.  Place on the grill and pour remaining juices from the bag over the fish.  (We have a George Foreman; this might not work as well on a real grill).  Cook until fish flakes easily with a fork. 

I served the salmon with rice (for Chris) and a big salad.  The only thing I would do differently is make a little extra sauce on the side (that didn’t touch the raw fish) to add over the rice (grilling inevitably dries things out a little).  It was still delicious, though.  I forgot to take a picture of it that night, but here it is in chunks in my salad the next day for lunch:


It turns brown from the soy sauce and seriously, it’s so good! Even Luke loved it! :)

Three things I want to add:

First, I didn’t get a chance to post about In Defense of Food because some unexpected things came up last week and then we were in CT this weekend.  Sorry! I really try to be a blogger of my word. It will come eventually, I promise!

Second, if you’re wondering what happened to my two new clean recipes per month idea, it’s been more challenging since I’ve been Somersizing.  I only eat about 5 processed items now (things like Splenda, Cheerios, and the occasional genoa salami, pepperoni, or turkey bacon).  Since I spend a lot more time preparing my own food, I haven’t been thinking so much about other ways to convert my regular recipes into clean ones.  I’ve been reading a lot, though, and learning so much!

Third, for those of you who asked below, YES I coupon!  Like a crazy woman. :)
