Dish out the fish with your new go-to salmon dinner recipe from notorious Whitehouse Chef Andre Rush. If it’s good enough for the President of the United States…
If you’re on a health kick, you can’t go far wrong with a fillet of salmon for an omega-3-rich protein punch packed with healthy fats. One of the most nutritious foods known to man, salmon is nutrient-dense and a fantastic source of selenium, vitamin B, and phosphorus.
Salmon is a fantastic allrounder for an abundance of micronutrients, is high in B12, beneficial for red blood cell production, has fatty acids which support brain function, and contains more potassium than a banana. Aim to include at least two servings per week into your diet to reap the rewards of this nutritional powerhouse and reduce the risk of heart disease and other nasties.
Health benefits aside, salmon has a unique flavor profile that’s much more subtle than other oily fish varieties like mackerel. This versatile staple is satisfying and delicious and pairs beautifully with salad, new potatoes, or rice.
Chef Rush’s take on the classic incorporates oriental aromas with soy sauce, garlic, and brown sugar. The sweet tang compliments the salmon’s mild flavor to perfection. Opt for low-sodium soy sauce and sweetener for healthy swaps instead of sugar.
- 1 ½ pounds salmon fillets
- ½ fresh lemon
- ¼ tsp garlic powder to taste
- ½ tsp salt to taste
- ⅓ cup soy sauce
- ⅓ cup brown sugar
- ⅓ cup water
- ¼ olive oil
1- Season salmon fillets with pepper, garlic powder, and salt.
2- In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and vegetable oil until the sugar dissolves. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
3- Preheat the grill pan to medium heat.
4- Lightly oil grill. Place salmon on the preheated grill, and discard the marinade. Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Squeeze lemon on top and serve with any condiments you fancy.
