More Diet-Friendly Fish from the Critical Mom

Salmon, salmon, salmon again.  (Salmon from Aldi, the cheapo grocery, not Edeka, the hotsy-totsy one?  Will it be any good?)  Okay, let's assume it's not quite fresh (but as it turns out, it is fresh).  Fresh or not so fresh, this is a good, low-calorie fish recipe:

One chunk (generous:  the size of two men's thumbs) ginger

Two big slices of Aldi fresh salmon (enough for three people)

Fresh-squeezed orange juice (two or three oranges)

Dash or two of low-sodium soy sauce

Fresh ground pepper (from one of those grinders that mixes black, green, and red peppercorns)

Garlic powder

First, rinse the salmon.  Set aside.

Make the orange juice.  Grate the ginger into it--grate very fine.

Add a dash or two of the soy sauce.  Mix.  

Put the fish in a bowl, pour the mixture over it, let it marinate at least a few hours.   When you're ready to cook, pre-heat the oven to about 250º C (about 480ºF).  Put the fish in a baking dish, pour the marinade over.  Grate the pepper over the fish and sprinkle with garlic powder.  Put in oven under the broiler, using whirling heat if possible.

Side dishes:  steamed broccoli is nice.  Sushi rice too.

If you don't need to lose weight, brown sugar is delicious in the marinade.  And a dash of sesame oil--the dark, aromatic kind.

The fish needs around eight-ten minutes under the broiler.  Baste once.  Enjoy!
