Gingered Honey Salmon

You have not had good salmon until you've tried this recipe. It's AMAZING! Both my 6 year-old and my 7 year-old requested this recipe for their birthday dinners, and no, they are not that strange! It's that good! We often eat it with Parmesan Cous Cous, but it's good with rice pilaf too.

Gingered Honey Salmon

1/3 C orange juice
1/3 C soy sauce
¼ C honey
1 green onion, chopped
1 t ground ginger
1 t garlic powder
1 salmon fillet (1 ½ lbs and ¾” thick)

Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray before starting the grill. In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients; mix well. Set aside 1/3 C for basting; cover and refrigerate. Pour remaining marinade into a large resealable plastic bag or shallow glass container; add salmon and turn to coat. Seal or cover and refrigerate for 30 min, turning once or twice. Drain and discard marinade. Place salmon skin side down on grill. Grill, covered, over med-hot heat for 5 min. Baste with reserved marinade. Grill 10-15 min longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting frequently.

Serving: 4-6

Not the best picture...just trying to add color with my native Australian bird towel...if I could only afford a food photographer! What's with the shadow? You'd think it was my first day with a camera! :)
