4 salmon steaks (6 ounces each)
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon dried orange peel
1. Preheat the broiler. Place the salmon on a broiler pan.
2. In a shallow bowl, stir together the soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, ginger, and orange peel.
3. Brush the mixture over the top of the salmon. Broil 4 to 6 inches from the heat until the salmon just flakes when tested with a fork, about 6 minutes. Makes 4 servings
Soy-Ginger Salmon Salad Make a double batch of the soy-ginger baste (step 2) and transfer half of it to a serving bowl to serve as a salad dressing. Baste and cook the salmon as directed. To the dressing, add 2 cups cooked rice, 1 cup green peas, and 1 cup shredded carrots. Cut the broiled salmon into bite-size pieces, add to the salad, and toss gently to combine.
