After chicken, salmon is my go-to meat for quick, flavorful dinners. It takes wonderfully to a variety of seasonings and cooks in mere minutes. In this case, the salmon is glazed with thick honey, fresh lemon, and grated ginger. The final result is subtly sweet and divinely delicious. The recipe pairs a peppery arugula salad with the salmon, but if you prefer spinach or another green to arugula, simply alter it to suit your liking.
