I pulled this together for dinner last night for some defrosted salmon fillets but it would be tasty on chicken or pork as well.
I say "from the pantry" on these ideas becuase I only used items that I try to keep on hand. Having a few staples like lemon juice, soy sauce and spices let's me whip things up without having to hit the grocery story on a regular basis. Honestly, I'm a week behind on the shopping. I'll be hitting that pantry hard until this weekend at least!
Here's what I did for our salmon last night. I only made two fillets and then threw the little bit of glaze I had left on the rice. It was yummy!
- 1 tablespoon honey
- ½ tablespoon lemon juice
- ½ tablespoon soy sauce
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- pinch or two of salt
Mix all ingredients together and smear on salmon fillets.
I then simply cooked on a preheated non-stick skillet with a bit of non-stick cooking spray. They took about 3 minutes a side and came out with a fabulous sweet crust.
That's what happens when you use honey! I love it!
On the side I served mixed veggies and some quick fried rice that I bulked up with onion, zucchini and carrots. It was a fabulous quick meal!
