Isn’t salmon so delicious? I was craving fish this week, but before I finally caved and made my second trip to the grocery store this week alone, I looked up some new recipes online. I’m someone who gets bored of eating the same thing all the time, and I had a feeling whatever I chose to make was going to come out right! I came across a recipe for baked honey salmon, but since that recipe included soy sauce, and I don’t use soy sauce regularly, I decided I would experiment a bit in the kitchen today! Side note: do you ever find yourself buying ingredients for a recipe only to use them once, too? I’m trying to cut back on that.
Baked salmon doesn’t take too long to make which is what it makes this an excellent meal for someone who doesn’t have a lot of time but still wants to feel full and healthy after dining. Personally, salmon is my favorite source of protein because it’s very flavorful and is also rich in fatty Omega 3s, great for clear skin – something I’m forever trying to achieve. This is my first time making this recipe and I have to say I think I did a great job! It’s the perfect balance between sweet and spicy. I’ll make this again for Danny the next time he comes home off the road.
