What's For Dinner Wednesday?


This recipe was great and simple and also under 400 calories! Yes, that's right! It was a perfect combo of sweet and tangy/sour, falling off of your fork. Perfect portion size, also.

Honey-Soy Glazed Salmon w/ Spinach and Peppers

1 tbs honey

3 tsp low sodium soy sauce

1 1/4 pound skinless salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces

Kosher salt and black pepper

1 tbs canola oil

1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1 tbs chopped fresh ginger (I honestly can't tell you how it is w/ ginger b/c I'm allergic. But it's still delicious w/out it!)

3 bunches spinach, thick stems removed

1 tbs toasted sesame seeds (mine aren't toasted and were still great!)

-Heat broiler. In a small bowl, combine the honey and 1 tsp of soy sauce

-Place the salmon on a foil lined broiler proof baking sheet and season w/ 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Broil for 5 minutes. Spoon the honey mixture over the salmon and broil until the salmon is opaque throughout, 2 to 5 minutes more.

-Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper and cook, tossing occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes; stir in the ginger

-Add the spinach and 1/2 tsp salt and cook, tossing, until just wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the remaining 2 tsp of soy sauce. Serve with the salmon and sprinkle w/ the sesame seeds

Yum - The Hub can't stand fish, but I make it for myself whenever he travels for work. This is going to the TOP of the list to try the next time he is gone!

Keep up the great blogging!
Visiting you from SITS!
