This wonderful, easy main dish makes a delicious meal when served with a green salad, rice or rice noodles and steamed vegetables. Salmon contains substantial amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce inflammation, protect against heart attacks, and reduce your chances of developing cancer. I recommend eating fish two to three times a week, especially those that contain generous amounts omega-3 fatty acids. Other choices include sardines, herring, and mackerel.
Reserve some of the marinade before adding the fish to use as a sauce for the rice or rice noodles
- 1 cup sake (Japanese rice wine)
- 1/4 cup natural soy sauce or tamari
- 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
- 2 cloves fresh garlic, pressed
- 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
- 12 oz. salmon fillets, cut in two 6-oz. pieces

1. Prepare the marinade by mixing the sake, soy sauce (a reduced-sodium variety if you prefer), ginger, garlic, and brown sugar together in a small bowl. Reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade.
2. Rinse the salmon fillets under cold water, place in a glass or ceramic dish and pour the marinade over it. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 3 hours, spooning the liquid over any exposed parts of the fish once or twice.
3. Prepare the grill or preheat the broiler to high heat.
4. Remove the fish from the marinade and place on foil on the grill or a broiler pan. Broil or grill until done, being careful not to overcook.
5. Pour reserved marinade over fish and serve at once.Join today
