You know how I love my Cook yourself thin cookbooks and this is another one of my absolute favorite recipes. My whole family likes this one. I really need to do a giveaway for this book soon.
To make the sauce that goes on the salmon you simply put in 1 pot and boil:
2 TB low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp minced ginger
1 3-inch cinnamon stick
1 tsp rice vinegar
5 ounces mango nectar (you can find this in a soda pop looking can where all the canned fruit is)
Bring this to boil and then simmer without the lid on for 15 minutes until the mixture is just a little thicker and about half the amount. Strain mixture through a small strainer and throw away any solids.
Brush about a 1/4 of it on the salmon and broil 5 minutes (I broil on low) then brush 1/4 mixture again and broil 3 more minutes. The book says to not brush any mixture on until after the first 5 initial minutes of cooking but I prefer it brushed on twice.
Serve with the remaining sauce over salmon. It is yummy and good for you. If this only serves two then its about 260 calories each. For four people is is about 130 calories each.
The smell of the mixture cooking is great too!
FYI: I tried this on chicken once and it was not the best flavor for chicken. Stick to the fish in my opinion.
If you have not bought this book yet and you have tried any recipes that I have shared, it is worth the money to buy one. I love it!
