Ginger Salmon

Are you looking for a romantic dinner, but want to avoid the old stand by of steak, or chicken? Well why not try some fish? Salmon is a wonderful fish that is full of flavor, easy to prepare, and can actually be purchased for about the same price as a decent steak. But if you are looking for something beyond the simple butter and lemon that most people use when preparing fish, then you really need to try this ginger salmon recipe. You'll just love it!

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1 1/12 teaspoon Dijon style mustard
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1/2 pound salmon fillets (Qty: 2)
  • Baking dish, preferably non-stick

Recipe:

  1. Preheat the oven. Begin making your salmon dinner by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Doing this now will allow your oven to heat up to the proper temperature, and actually reduce the total amount of cooking time.
  2. Blend the sauce. While your oven is preheating, grab a small bowl and begin to make the sauce that will be used to flavor your salmon. Mix the honey, olive oil, and the mustard together until you have reached a smooth even consistency in your mixture. Set aside for minute or two to allow everything to thicken, just don't let it begin to separate (which oil has a tendency to do).
  3. Paint the salmon. Using a basting brush, begin to "paint" the fillets of salmon with your sauce. Be sure that you evenly coat each side of the fillets. This will help prevent the fillets from sticking to the baking dish, as well as seasoning the entire fish.
  4. Bake the salmon. Place your baking dish into the preheated oven, and allow everything to begin baking. The total baking time in a completely preheated oven should only be about 15 to 20 minutes. The actual cooking time may vary depending on the type of oven used, so periodically check the fish. When it flakes easily, you know you are done.

One you have baked the salmon, remove it from the oven and begin to serve it. This dish would go great with a side of asparagus, and a light salad. In addition to being a great recipe for a light dinner any night, this recipe is just about perfect for a romantic evening at home. This recipe is designed to serve two individual servings of the ginger salmon. If you are looking to prepare it for more than just two people, then simply double the recipe for four people. For odd numbered guests, experiment a little or be prepared for leftovers.
