Pan Seared Ginger Salmon

I got this recipe from Dona, otherwise known as "D-lish", who got it from the Wild Oats website. This is such a simple marinade, but it tastes so amazing! We usually cook our salmon on the barbecue.


4, 6 oz. salmon fillets, skin-on
1/2 c. warm water
2 Tbsp. honey
1/2 c. soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tbsp. fresh ginger, grated
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 bunch scallions or green onions, finely diced

In a small bowl, mix warm water with the honey. Add the soy sauce, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes. Mix well. Pour marinade in a large resealable plastic bag. Place salmon fillets in the bag. Refrigerate 10 to 20 minutes. Heat a large saute or grill pan over medium hight heat. When the pan is hot, add the olive oil and place the salmon in the pan skin side up. Sear for 3 minutes. Turn the salmon and cook for 3 minutes longer. Remove from pan, garnish with scallions and serve immediately.
