Orange-Ginger Salmon

With the weather heating up, I always like to find dinners that are a little on the lighter side. I love salmon because it's healthy, but also meaty. Salmon is great becasue it can be a substantial dinner and not leave me hungry a few hours later like some other fish can. This recipe is really simple, but the flavors are bold and delicious - perfect for a quick summer meal.

Orange-Ginger Salmon

2 fresh salmon steaks
1 orange, zested and juiced
1 in. freshly grated ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup soy or teriaki marinade (recommended: Yoshida's Gourmet Sauce)
1/4 tsp. pepper

In a medium bowl, mix together the soy sauce, orange zest, orange juice, garlic, ginger, and pepper. Whisk to combine. Set aside a small portion to dip, if desired. Add the salmon steaks and marinate at least 1 hour or up to overnight. (The longer you marinate the salmon, the better!)
Grill or broil the salmon until it is cooked through and golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Enjoy!
