2 table spoons of extra virgin olive oil, separated evenly (one for greasing and one for cooking)
1/2 table spoon of toasted sesame seeds (optional)
Place broiler rack 8 inches from heat source. Preheat broiler.
Coat baking sheet with 1 table spoon of olive oil.
In a bowl, combine agave nectar, mustard, ginger powder and soy sauce.
Dip or coat salmon fillets with sauce. Place on baking sheet. Set the rest of the sauce aside.
Broil for 8 minutes. Take fish out. Coat with rest of the sauce. Broil for another 5 - 10 minutes, or until salmon's fully cooked.
While salmon's cooking, heat frying pan on high, on stove top. Add the other table spoon of olive oil.
When oil becomes hot (usually takes about 30 seconds), add minced ginger, garlic and green onion. Cook for about 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until everything's golden on the outside. Turn heat off.
Take salmon out when it's done, top with cooked ginger, garlic and green onion.
Top with sesame seeds (optional).
Make extra sauce and heat in microwave, and top salmon with it, or use for dipping. (Also optional)
Served with a side of vegetables, this clean eating recipe was absolutely delicious. I loved the combination of sweet agave and tangy mustard. Add a plash of spicy ginger, this was the perfect glaze for a healthy slab of salmon.
I hope you enjoyed tonight’s clean eating recipe. I also hope you come back and visit.
