Dinner Tonight: Ginger Soy Glazed Salmon + Miso Salad

April  1, 2013

Expecting your weeknight meals to be quick, balanced, and incredibly flavorful is never too much to ask. An enticing meal is not only within reach, but may also be easier than that pasta dish you were planning on making -- for the second week in a row. As the calming scent of ginger reaches your nose, and the heat of sriracha perks up your tastebuds, you'll know you made the right decision.

Ginger Miso Salad by TheSkinnyGoose

Ginger Soy Glazed Salmon by Meatballs&Milkshakes

The Grocery List

wild salmon
fresh ginger
mixed greens
butter lettuce
Asian pear
fresh thyme
red onion

We're guessing you have garlic, soy sauce, red wine, brown sugar, olive oil, rice wine vinegar, sugar, sriracha, sesame oil, and red wine vinegar -- if not, you'll be needing those too!

The Plan

1. Get started on the ginger soy glaze for the salmon. While the sauce is reducing, wash and dry the greens for your salad.

2. Glaze your salmon, and bake for 20 minutes. 

3. While the salmon is cooking, finish up the salad: combine dressing ingredients, toss with greens, and plate. Serve the finished salmon alongside, and enjoy!

"Get started on the ginger soy glaze". What does that mean? What is in the ginger soy glaze?
