I'm a salmon fan, roenick, and love trying new ways to prepare my favorite fish. Thanks for sharing it -- I'll definitely give it a try next week!

(The story behind the recipe: My dad and I spent the better part of a week checking in on Mom two weeks ago; she'd been admitted for pneumonia and a serious blood imbalance -- a potentially fatal combination in an 84-year-old woman. While Dad and I were there, we'd had a few meals at the cafeteria, including the aforementioned Glazed Salmon. The next day, I told the main nutritionist/meal planner at the cafeteria how good it was, and if a recipe was available. It was, and she passed along a copy of it my way. The good news: Mom was released from the hospital after a week, and she's improving by leaps and bounds each day. )
Anyway, the recipe's a cinch. The salmon was nearly restaurant quality with that first effort, if I say so myself.
Two (2) servings
1 tablespoon + 1 3/4 teaspoons soy sauce
2 1/2 teaspoons honey
2 1/2 teaspoons lime juice
3/4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 3/4 teaspoons olive oil
2 8-ounce salmon filets
Whisk together soy sauce, honey, lime juice, mustard, and ginger. Heat until blaze has reduced slightly. Brush filets with oil. Spoon half of glaze on top of filets. Bake at 400 F oven until just cooked through, about 10 minutes. Top with remaining glaze, and serve.
(GSG's note: We used our handy-dandy George Foreman indoor grill for this recipe. Roughly eight to 12 minutes on the grill will do the trick, depending on how well done you prefer your fish.)
Bon appetit, my friends!
