Dinner Tonight: Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced Carrots
For breakfast I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Did the morning workout and showered. Then off to Meijer, they had a few items that went on a 2 day sale starting today. Pork Tenderloin Roasts, Buy 1 get one free. Along with some other items, good sale! Hot and very, very humid out. Man I can't stand this high humidity! Back home did a few chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I tried a new recipe, Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon. I prepared a Baked Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon w/ Sugar Snap Peas and Sliced Carrots.
I came across this recipe, Ginger Honey Glazed Salmon, on an McCormick Recipe email and couldn't wait to give it a try! I'll need the following to make the dish; 1/4 cup orange juice, 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce, 2 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon McCormick® Ground Ginger, 1 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic Powder, 1 green onion (chopped), and 1 pound salmon fillets.
I purchased the Salmon at Meijer Seafood Department earlier today. To prepare the salmon I first rinsed it off under cold water and patted dry with paper towel and set aside. Next mixed the orange juice, soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic powder and green onion in small bowl. Reserving 2 tablespoons of the marinade. Placed the salmon in large resealable plastic bag. Add remaining marinade; turn to coat well. Refrigerated for 30 minutes. Preheated the oven on 400 degrees. Removed the salmon from marinade. Discarded the remaining marinade.
Baked the salmon for 11 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting the fillet 1/2 way through the baking time with the reserved marinade. The salmon came out perfect, and what flavor! The orange juice, soy sauce, and honey combine for a perfect marinade. Then you get the taste of the ginger and garlic powder, outstanding! A for sure Keeper Recipe! I baked my salmon where the original recipe calls for grilling it. The original recipe and web link are at the end of the post.
For one side dish I prepared some Sugar Snap Peas, I had picked these up at Kroger the day
before.They come packaged fresh. To prepare them I heated 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Olive Oil in a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Added the Sugar Snap Peas, tossing occasionally for 5 to 6 minutes, until the Sugar Snap Peas were crisp tender.
Then for a second side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Another canned Vegetable
