There are days when 30 minutes is about all I have available to prepare a healthy meal for my family. I want to make sure to provide them with delicious, nutritious meals even on the evenings when I am pushed for time.

This week, I discovered a dish that fits perfectly into this category – Honey Ginger Salmon.


My husband had just returned from a fishing trip in Alaska with his father, his brothers, and a few friends.

Each of the fishermen brought home 70 pounds of fish – halibut, salmon, and some red snapper. I was beyond excited! I not only love to prepare fish, I love to eat it! Luckily so does Little Buddy. It’s a favorite around my house.


This is the 167 pound halibut my husband caught. The day he caught this, another one of the people in his boat caught one weighing 198 pounds. Um, that’s a whole lot of fish!

I’m sure I’ll be sharing halibut recipes soon, but for this meal – it’s all about the salmon baby. My favorite.
