Teriyaki Ginger Salmon with a Sesame Orange Honey Drizzle


Seafood is, hands down, the best. I’ve been known to eat seafood for 30 days straight; I remember those days like yesterday, “Fish again mommy”, “Don’t tell me, it’s Fish for dinner” or, my personal favorite, “I’m good babe, I’ll make some Ramen Noodles instead.” Needless to say, while we are a southern family, not everyone is graced with the love of seafood.  I don’t know what it is but this gal lllooovvveeesss her seafood. Today, fellow audience, I came across this delicious recipe by How Sweet It Is ,just when I thought Salmon couldn’t get any better than lemon and butter. I present to you… Teriyaki Ginger Salmon with Sesame Orange Honey Drizzle. So deliciously fragrant with a subtle salty-sweetness, pink flesh, and lightly charred exterior for that delicious crunchy top.
