Entrée: Asian Citrus-Grilled Salmon
This mouthwatering entree is low-fat, easy to make, and bursting with brain-friendly omega-3 fats.
Recipe yield: 4
- 4 (6 ounce) wild salmon steaks
- 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 2 teaspoons tomato paste
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
1. Place the salmon in a zip-top bag. Mix the soy sauce, orange juice, garlic, mustard, tomato paste, and lemon juice in a bowl. Pour into the bag with the salmon. Seal the bag, pressing out excess air. Refrigerate to marinate 4 to 6 hours.
2. Prepare a grill. Remove the salmon from the bag, reserving the marinade. Place the salmon on the grill and cook, turning once, for about 5 minutes on each side, or longer for well done. For extra flavor, lightly drizzle a few tablespoons of the marinade on salmon during grilling. Discard leftover marinade.
