Salmon is one of the world's healthiest foods. Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, vitamins D and B12, and protein, it's an absolute powerhouse of good nutrition. Better yet, it tastes great! Perfect for the hot days of summer the sweet orange-ginger glaze is tinged with just a tinge of heat. If you prefer, an indoor grill or sauté pan can be used to cook the salmon.
