Ginger Roasted Salmon

My Christmas gift to my parents this year was a very nice, fresh, and flavorful dinner. Mom loves salads and sweet colorful food and my Dad loves salmon and wild rice. I found these two recipes and they go incredibly well together for a filling and delicious meal. My parents and my grandmother absolutely LOVED this and kept going back for more ūüôā

Christmas 2013 Dinner:


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 (6 ounces each) center-cut boneless salmon fillets, skin on
  • 1 Tablespoon(s) seasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon(s) grated fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoon(s) honey
  • 2 teaspoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper


STEP 1: Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with a rack and spray with cooking spray.
