Tasty Tuesday: Asian Glazed Salmon

I'm loving Pinterest because I can type in ingredients I have on hand, do a search, and a bunch of yummy recipes come up. I made this Asian Glazed Salmon last week to rave reviews. I made just a few modifications to the original recipe, using brown rice (because that's what I had on hand) instead of Israeli couscous and omitting the fish sauce (because I didn't have any). Experimenting is what cooking is all about, right? :)

Asian Glazed Salmon

2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp honey
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
2 6-oz salmon filets
brown rice
1 bag baby spinach
1/2 tbsp olive oil

Whisk together soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, garlic, and ginger. Place salmon filets in a shallow dish just big enough to accommodate them and pour the marinade over them. Marinate in the refrigerator for about an hour.

Remove salmon from marinda, reserving the marinade, and grill until light and flaky.

Cook rice according to package instructions.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large saute pan. Add garlic and saute for a minute. Add reserved marinade and bring to a boil. Add spinach and saute until wilted.

Serve the salmon over the rice and spinach, spooning any extra sauce over top.
