GINGER SOY SALMON

and we’re back with another salmon dish! we prepared this one with white rice because as much as i like brown rice (and its health benefits) white rice is just where it’s at sometimes. i love how the sauce soaks into the rice leaving it full of flavor. in an effort to cut down on prep time, we did not marinate the salmon, we simply prepared the sauce and drizzled it over the fish after cooking and before serving. that worked really well as the sauce didn’t have time to cook off with the heat. my favorite way to prepare the fish is to brush with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and than prepare a cast iron pan with avocado oil. get the pan really hot over a medium/high flame and than put the fish on. 3-4 minute per side. remove and cover for a few minutes before serving! – joanie

    For the ginger paste, do you just smash fresh ginger into a paste?

    Hi Annie,

    we purchased the ginger paste at our local grocery store. It is usually sold in the produce section. But if it is not available another alternative is to peel the ginger and use a grater to make a pulp. Hope that helps!
