Hi Everyone! We’re already about mid way through September – can you believe it?! It will be the holiday season in the blink of an eye. I love to entertain, especially during the holidays, and often get asked what is an easy and healthy meal to cook for guests. My go-to meal to impress is super simple, only 6 ingredients in the main dish! You will have everyone coming back for seconds!


Glazed Salmon

4 Tbsp. soy sauce

3 Tbsp. honey

3 Tbsp. orange juice

3 tsp. garlic, minced

1 tsp. ginger, minced

4 (6 oz.) wild salmon fillets

  1. Combine the soy sauce, honey and orange juice in a medium bowl or 1-gallon resealable plastic bag. Add the salmon fillets and coat well in the marinade. Marinate for 30 minutes, up to several hours, in the refrigerator.
  2. Heat a grill or indoor grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat the grill with oil spray.
  3. Grill the salmon 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until opaque throughout. Serve 1 salmon fillet with your favorite roasted veggie and a green salad drizzled with 1 Tbsp. of your favorite dressing.

Eating healthy unsaturated fats, like salmon, has so many benefits. Salmon is also high in protein, vitamin D and B-12. A great source of magnesium and omega-3 fatty acids, and has been proven to lower cholesterol levels. Healthy fats are something that most people do not get enough of, that’s why I love coming up with ways that you can incorporate more of this powerhouse food into your diet.
