Sorry I am not sorry for loving Salmon. This is only my second post and already I am a repeat offender. I just have been eating very “clean” this month and that means lots of fish. Promise next week will have more variety.
I usually have to force myself to season my veggies or fish with anything more than garlic salt and pepper but I am a huge ginger fan ( the root not the people) and when I spotted a recipe for salmon and ginger together I had to try it out with my own little twist.
What you’ll need :
4 oz of Salmon
1 Tbsp Apple Cider vinegar
1 Tsp Ground Ginger or
1 Tbsp fresh ginger
1 Tsp Nutmeg
5 sprays of substitute butter spray
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp of grey poupon mustard
1 tbsp non fat Greek yogurt or sour cream
Pre heat your oven to 400. Tear a piece of tin foil, about a foot long and set aside. Combine horse radish, non fat Greek yogurt or non fat sour cream and mustard in a dish and set aside. Combine ginger, minced garlic, salt, pepper, nutmeg and apple cider vinegar together. Take your salmon and place it in a ziplock bag or shallow bowl and pour the ginger and garlic mixture over it, gently rubbing the marinade into it, then leave it alone. For awhile. The longer you wait the more flavorful the salmon will be. Id say an hour or two.
Once it’s done marinating in that garlic ginger goodness place it in the center of the tin foil. Grab your Horse radish and yogurt mixture and spoon that over the salmon then flip it over and do the same. You can pour your left over marinade into the foil once you’re ready to wrap it up and stick it on the oven.
It takes about 20 to 25 minutes to bake.
I am warning you that when you finally open that little envelope of deliciousness it will punch you in the nose with a fragrant pillowy thrust of salmon ginger spicy fury. So good.
I served it on top of my onion and apple rings with the extra juice poured on top and a side of siracha ketchup to dip the rings in but it’d be great over sautéed spinach and a ball of jasmine rice or brown rice. Enjoy your pretty and healthy meal! :)
