Herb and Ginger Salmon

13 Mar

This delicious and easy recipe is inspired by the Jr Master chef tv show. The kids had to make a salmon recipe with herbs. It looked so delicious that I decided to experiment with the idea. The fresh herbs give the salmon amazing flavors.

  • 1/4 cup parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves, chopped
  •  1 tsp olive oil or grape seed oil
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • pepper
  • salmon filets with skin on
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp gluten free low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbs honey

Mix the herbs, ginger and oil together. Season the fish with pepper. Cut two or three long slits lentwise on bottom of the salmon fillets, going halfway into salmon.  Stuff the slits with the herb mixture. Stir tighter the lemon juice, soy and honey. Put 2 tsp of grape seed oil in frying pan. Heat the pan on medium high heat. Place the salmon skin side down on frying pan. Cook about 3 minutes. Start basting the salmon with the sauce mix. Cook 2 more minutes before turning the salmon and cooking for an other 2 minutes.

To be honest, you could completely skip the sauce and use only the herbs and at the end squeeze some lemon juice on the salmon.
