Honey-Glazed Salmon and Snap Peas
Calories per serving: 314
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon ginger, freshly grated, or peeled and finely chopped
Four 6-ounce salmon fillets or steaks
1 tablespoon chopped mint or cilantro for garnish
1/2 pound snap peas, trimmed
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper
1. Preheat the broiler to high heat. Bring a medium pot of water to boil.
2. Whisk the honey, soy sauce and ginger together in a small bowl. Place the salmon on a foil-lined tray, brush both sides of the salmon with the glaze and season with freshly ground pepper.
3. Broil for 4 to 5 minutes per side, until cooked through. Sprinkle with chopped mint or cilantro.
4. When the water is boiling, add the trimmed peas and cook for one minute, until bright green but still crunchy. Immediately drain in colander and transfer to serving bowl. Drizzle with sesame oil, and season with salt and pepper. Serve alongside Honey-Glazed Salmon.
Variations: Instead of salmon, try 1 pound pork tenderloin cut into 4 pieces, or 1 pound chicken breasts, and adjust cooking times as needed. Substitute snow peas for snap peas if desired.
