I’m all about simple and delicious these days! This recipe does take a little bit of prep work and a few steps, but it can be prepped ahead of time or during kid’s afternoon naps! This is so delish it is making my mouth water as I sit here typing about it. I’ve already made my meal plans for this week, but I might have to change them so we can have this again!
Until this year we haven’t eaten much fish because I just haven’t really known how to cook it. We didn’t eat it much growing up and I guess I’ve just learned to cook like my Mom… and have ventured out from there! She certainly gave me a good start in healthy, wholesome, cheap cooking!
After this last pregnancy I’ve realized how good fish is for you and the need for fish oil and the benefits it gives to my kids too! I’ve made it a goal to have fish once a week. We have it at least every other week which is an improvement, but still would like to increase the frequency a bit more! I’m very thankful that my kids have warmed to the idea and LOVE fish.
Thankfully God has blessed me with kids who are up for trying new things and aren’t very picky. Granted they do love their store bought mac n’ cheese (although not crazy for hot dogs or chicken nuggets!), but they are also quite fond of blue cheese, black olives and squid!
This particular recipe was from a dear friend that moved a way to the West recently. We miss her so much and each time we have this, her name comes up in the dinner conversation. There really isn’t a recipe… it’s just a list of ingredients and you just add a little of this and a little of that for your taste! I’ll try and give measurements, but know that it is just an estimate and there is no right or wrong. Do what sounds good to you!
Simple Soy Sauce Salmon
Ginger – A LOT! About 1/8 – ¼ cup grated
3-6 cloves Garlic
¼ cup Soy sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
1 Red/orange pepper
Place grated ginger, chopped garlic and soy sauce in small sauce pan and heat until ginger and garlic are soft. While this is cooking, place fish skin side down on a piece of tinfoil. Once the soy sauce mixture is done cooking, pour on top of the fish and place sliced carrots and pepper on top. Season with salt and pepper and close up the tinfoil and bake on 400 in the oven until the fish flakes apart easily. I think it was about 20-30 minutes depending on how big the piece of fish is.
It’s SO easy and SO good!
