Savory Ginger Salmon

Print

This is such an easy recipe that only takes a few minutes to prepare as slicing the scallions is the only laborious task. I love this recipe at the end of a long day. Without a lot of work and time, I have a tasty and gourmet dinner. My husband is thrilled and eats it down, every last drop (yes he even drinks the sauce!). And I get my belly friendly dinner.

 

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This is a delicious way for everyone to enjoy salmon. But it is especially great for people with digestive troubles. Salmon contains anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fatty acids. Ginger is also anti-inflammatory and strengthens the muscle movements of the GI tract. Only the green parts of the scallions are used because they contain no FODMAPs. Make it celiac friendly by using gluten-free soy sauce.

Savory Ginger Salmon

  • Prep Time:5 minutes
  • Cook Time:15-20 minutes
  • Servings: 2

Ingredients

1 pound salmon (halved)

2 heaping tablespoons ginger (grated)

2-3 scallions (green parts only, chopped)

⅕ cup soy sauce (opt for a low-sodium and gluten-free version)

1 tablespoon sesame oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Place salmon in a small, oven safe pan or baking dish.
  3. Spread grated ginger over the salmon evenly.
  4. Sprinkle chopped scallions over salmon.
  5. Splash soy sauce over the salmon, enough to fully cover the sides and top (it will roll off, but that is why I use a close-fitting dish – so it doesn’t have far to roll).
  6. Drizzle with sesame oil.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes to desired doneness.

    This is my new go-to salmon recipe. It took under 10 minutes for me to prepare but still had lots of flavor. Salmon dishes are a tough sell in this house (my husband isn’t a huge fan), but even he enjoyed it.
