Baked Salmon with Orange Soy Ginger Marinade
Adapted from The Healthiest Meals on Earth by Jonny Bowden
I modeled this recipe after a broiled tamari salmon dish in The Healthiest Meals on Earth book. This recipe is nice because it takes little time to prepare and doesn’t take much attention to cook either. Serve it with a whole grain and green vegetable and you have an awesome healthy meal.
Prep Time: 10 minutes, Plus 30-60 minutes to marinate
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Serving Size: 4-6
1 ½ lbs. wild salmon fillets, cut into 4-6 portions
⅓ cup dry white wine or vegetable broth
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons ginger, peeled and grated
1 orange, zest and juice
¼ cup scallions, chopped
Add ⅓ cup dry white wine or vegetable broth to a small bowl. Add in 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 3 tablespoons grate fresh ginger, zest and juice of 1 orange, and ¼ cup chopped scallions. Whisk to combine the ingredients.
Place the salmon fillets in a shallow baking dish. Pour the soy mixture over the salmon and marinate for 30-60 minutes. If marinating for longer than 30 minutes cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Let the salmon in the marinade come to room temperature for 30 minutes before placing in the oven. Bake the salmon in the marinade for 12-15 minutes, or until just opaque and flakes with fork. Cook time will vary depending on the thickness of the salmon fillets.
Serve with a side of quinoa, rice, or wheat berries and roasted broccoli.
