I have read that if you look at Americans' top protein sources, fish shows up 11th on the list. Bread ranks 5th. Yikes - Americans get more protein in their diets from bread than fish. This makes me scratch my head, because I find seafood dishes to be so much more fulfilling, not to mention the health benefits to improve your vitality.
In Maui, my husband loved eating tuna and I enjoyed a lot of mahi mahi. However, my favorite dish by far was at a local restaurant known for traditional Hawaiian plates. I got the teriyaki salmon there and it was amazing.

Yes, I take pictures of food in restaurants.
I am that girl.
What I love about this recipe is that there is honey in it, which adds some sweetness. Also, the recipe only uses 6 ingredients, plus the salmon. Finally, this recipe is super easy and tastes great.
I chose to serve my salmon on a bed of black and white quinoa and shredded cabbage with roasted broccoli and cauliflower.
|My remake. Delicious!|
4 salmon fillets (we got wild caught for this dish)
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp soy sauce (I used low sodium)
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp olive oil (I used sesame oil)
1 tsp ground ginger
1. Preheat the oven on broil.
2. Place salmon fillets on an aluminum lined baking sheet.
3. Whisk together the glaze ingredients.
4. Broil the fillets for 4 minutes.
5. Pull out the salmon and brush half of the glaze on to the fillets.
6. Return to broil and broil for about 3 more minutes.
7. Pull out salmon and microwave the remaining half of the glaze.
8. Brush the remaining half of the glaze on the salmon and serve.
