Honey Soy Broiled Salmon – Healthy Option
Honey soy broiled salmon is sweet, savory and full of deliciously healthy ingredients. This is a perfect go-to fish meal for any occasion.
The Backstory: This is one of my all-time favorite ways to prepare salmon because it delivers on both sweet and savory flavors (not to mention all those wonderful health benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, and salmon’s high protein content). But aside from all of these good-for-you boosts to your health, this is a delicious recipe that’s easy to prepare, delicious all year round, and perfect when feeding a crowd.
