Fast & Easy Dinner: Honey-Ginger Glazed Salmon with Arugula Salad

Fast & Easy Dinner: Honey-Ginger Glazed Salmon with Arugula Salad

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. Thanks to you can make this tonight.

This sounds a lot like a recipe we make all the time at home. Instead of Honey we use one part butter to one part crushed ginger. My 4 year old daugther will eat more than my husband and I- combined!:D

I'm not wild about glazing salmon with something too sweet. Salmon's sweet enough as it is. Honey would just make me run for a water fountain. I'm much more a fan of a sour balsamic vinegar reduction or a spicy sauce.
