Ginger Orange Honey Mustard Glaze on Salmon

Ginger Orange Honey Mustard Glaze on Salmon

This is my absolutely favorite way to eat salmon, and I have had alot of good salmon.  The flavors are perfect for salmon: sweet and tangy.  Even if you don’t like salmon, I encourage you to give this a try.  Grilling salmon can get tough so you might want to use high temperature cooking spray or use aluminum foil.

  • 1/4 C Fresh Orange Juice
  • 1/4 C Lite Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 C Dry Sherry
  • 1/4 C Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 t Ground Ginger, or 2 Tbsp Grated Peeled Fresh Ginger (I have used crystalize ginger too)
  • 2 T Honey
  • 4 (6 oz.) Salmon Fillets

Combine first 6 ingre

dients in a large zip-lock bag. Add salmon to bag; seal and marinade in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Remove salmon from bag, reserving marinade.
Prepare grill or broiler. Place salmon on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Cook 6 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting frequently with reserved marinade.
Place remaining marinade in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Serve with salmon (and I like using the remaining marinade on white rice.)

Number of Servings: 4-8
