Healthy Recipe #2: Hoisin Glazed Salmon & Asian Slaw

Dish Gal has been cooking up a storm these past days! Lots of recipes coming your way...

I'll start with dinner on Saturday night-- Z and I made broiled salmon fillets with a hoisin & orange glaze, asian slaw, and brown rice. Usually, I think salmon is good for the first few bites, then leave half a fillet on my plate because I'm just not feeling it. However, this night I ate it all like my life depended on it. It was amazing, super easy, and healthy to boot. Here's how to make it:

Salmon with Orange Hoisin Glaze & Asian Slaw
Serves 2

2 salmon fillets
1 tbsp OJ
2 tbsp hoisin sauce
2 tsp honey

pre-packaged cole slaw mix OR 1/2 head of napa or red cabbage, chopped
1/2 yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
1 1/2 tsp white rice vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 a lime, juiced
2 green onions, diced
1 tbsp cilantro, chopped

1. Pre-heat the broiler. In one bowl, whisk together the white rice vinegar, sesame oil, and lime juice. Stick in the fridge.

2. In another bowl, mix together the hoisin sauce, orange juice, and honey. Season the salmon fillets with S&P.

3. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Place the salmon fillets on it. Drizzle both with 1/2 the hoisin/OJ mixture. Place in the broiler. Cook for 10 minutes. Halfway through, drizzle the remaining 1/2 of the hoisin mixture on the salmon to ensure they don't dry out.

4. While the fish is in the broiler, toss the slaw and bell peppers in with the vinegar/sesame oil mixture. Garnish with green onions.

5. Serve with a scoop of brown rice. Yum!
