Garlic Ginger Roasted Salmon

Around my house we’re always trying to make our meals just a little bit healthier, but I’m definitely not going to skimp on flavor or ease.  So let me just say, this meal has become a favorite around here!  We all know we should be eating more fatty fish (thanks omega-3s!), and salmon is one of my freezer staples.  I like to just throw mine in the oven with this simple marinade on it, and I usually roast some veggies in another pan right alongside it.  Serve it all with a little rice, and you’re set!

Garlic Ginger Roasted Salmon

-2 medium sized salmon fillets

-4 cloves of garlic

-2 inches of ginger

-1 Tbsp soy sauce

-1 Tbsp oyster sauce

-1 Tbsp honey

-1 tsp sesame oil

-salt and pepper to taste

Combine all of the ingredients except for the salmon in a small food processor to make a smooth paste.  If you don’t have a small food processor, no problem!  Just mince or grate the ginger and garlic and combine them with the other ingredients.  Next pat the salmon dry with a paper towel and spoon the marinade over both sides of the salmon.  If you have the time, allow it to marinate in the fridge for up to two hours; if not, just pop it in the oven.  Before roasting, make sure that most of the garlic mixture is sitting right on top of the fillets.  Then roast the salmon in a 375° oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until it is just cooked through.

I like to serve mine over hot rice tossed with minced green onions.  So easy and delicious!  Enjoy!
