Honey Ginger Salmon

This is a salmon dish even my picky 6 year-old liked, probably because of the honey.  Although not strictly Paleo because of the sugar in the honey and the orange juice, I will make this sacrifice if it gets her to eat a whole filet of omega-3 rich salmon!

HONEY GINGER SALMON

6 boneless salmon filets (5 oz each).  I buy my salmon at Costco, frozen, and defrost in refrigerator.

1/2 cup orange juice

1/8 cup honey

2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves

2 Tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons peeled and grated fresh ginger

1/4 teaspoon salt

Place fish in 1 gallon zip lock bag and set aside.  Whisk together remaining ingredients and pour over fish.  Seal and refrigerate 4 to 24 hours.  When ready to cook, grill, broil or bake according to directions below:

GRILL: Preheat gas grill on medium-high (about 400 degrees) for about 10 minutes.  Place salmon filets, skin side down, on grill.  Close lid and cook for 7 minutes.  Gently turn, sliding spatula just above the skin.  Place salmon back on top of skin, close lid and cook another 3 to 4 minutes or until salmon begins to flake.

BROIL: Preheat oven to broil.  Place salmon filets, skin side down, on broiler rack.  Place in oven about 6 inches from heat.  Close oven door, leaving door slightly ajar.  Broil 10 to 12 minutes or until salmon begins to flake.

BAKE:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place fish in glass casserole dish.  Bake 10-15 minutes or until fish begins to flake.
