I love salmon…its so versatile and delicious. Not to mention all those healthy omega fats! One of my favorite kinds of salmon is wild sockeye. If I can get it fresh (or frozen), its usually the one I’ll reach for. I love the bright color, and the texture is perfect and flaky when its just cooked through. I prepare salmon in a bunch of different ways, with savory sauces and sweet glazes. My preference is usually sweet, but I do really love a savory salmon too.


This sweet honey garlic and ginger salmon is a great staple recipe and would please just about anybody. Plus its super simple and easy to make. Fail proof…really!  I used coconut aminos in mine, but lower sodium soy sauce or Bragg’s soy seasoning would work as well.
