Soy sauce is one of those condiments that I use when I’m lazy and just want to throw a bunch of ingredients in a pan and call it dinner (aka stir-fry). I rarely make fancy sauces with it and, after using it excessively for a while I get bored and I push the bottle to the back of my cupboard to forget about it for a while. That’s where it’s been for the past couple of months.
The Recipe Redux challenge this month is to do some spring cleaning and create a healthy recipe with a condiment or spice that we haven’t used in a while. I fortuitously also have a ton of frozen fish that I’ve been meaning to cook and was searching for a quick sauce that can make the fish a bit more exciting. Enter said soy sauce.
This glaze is made with just five ingredients that I bet you have in your kitchen right now- garlic, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, and black pepper. Now I will never be bored with my fish again. Problem(s) solved!
What’s a condiment/spice that you’ve forgotten about lately?
- 2 salmon filets, with skin
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Rinse and pat salmon filets dry. Place on a lined baking sheet (with edges to catch any juice).
- Add all remaining ingredients to a small bowl and mix to combine. Brush onto the salmon and bake for 6-8 minutes, or more depending on the thickness of your salmon. Salmon is ready when it flakes easily.
