Quick Broiled Ginger Salmon

quick ginger salmon recipeHello! I have missed you.

We are moved in and almost settled. So close. I always forget how all-encompassing moving can be. How many little odds and ends need to be bought and replaced. The endless trips to Target. And my personal favorite, the $1ooo grocery shop. When all of your belongings are in storage for almost 3 months, the movers cannot pack any food items or cleaning products, so you have to start all over again.

We still have quite a few boxes, but thankfully, they are all unpacked. The upside? We love our new house and are so happy to be together as a family again. We had a glorious summer, and we all really needed the break. I was feeling run down and drained, and I was so grateful to have days on the beach playing with my kids and reading books. I know that it was quiet around here, I promise that I have all sorts of great new things to share with you starting today.

One of the things that I missed the most was cooking in my kitchen. I did very little cooking or baking over the summer and I missed it like I miss an old friend. So many people feel like cooking is a chore, an ends to a means, but to me cooking is a pleasure. Of course the weeknight-cooking-to-sustain-5-people routine can grow weary, but when I am in the kitchen, I feel happy and peaceful. It is a place for me to turn on some music, chop, stir, and mix to my hearts content. I get the best ideas when I in the kitchen, and I am so ready for this next phase of our lives.

My husband and I have a moving philosophy that is not so fun, but when are finished I am so glad that we did it. We just get it done. For 2 days, we did nothing but unpack boxes and put everything away. The house is in order and the only thing left is to hang pictures on the walls. We got so much done that we had an extra day before Wes had to go back to work so we went into the city and went to see some dinosaurs. I also was thrilled to make dinner and sit around the table with my family in our new home. I wanted to make something healthy and fast, and this quick salmon is just about as good as it gets. So flavorful and easy, easy, easy. I made a quick salad and dinner was served.

      Thank you Courtney! You too!

  2. Maura @ My Healthy 'Ohana

    Sounds delicious!! I love the combination of garlic, ginger and soy with salmon. So easy for a weeknight meal, but it seems fancy! Glad you are settling in…we just made a big move too, and still have some things in boxes. It takes a while, but I hope you are starting to feel at home in your new home πŸ™‚

      I hope that your move went well! This is so, so easy and you really cannot mess it up. My favorite kind of meal.

    Missed getting recipe input from you this summer-glad to have you settled and ready to create in the kitchen again! The salmon looks perfect for dinner this week. We are making healthier lifestyle choices and this salmon fits right in with the plan. Blessings on you, your family and your new digs.

      Thank you Sheryl! I am back, and so happy to be back. This salmon is perfect for you then! And you could also use different kinds of fish, but salmon just looked really good in the store that day. Good uck on your [ath to healthier eating.

  4. Aggie

    This salmon looks perfect. I love that you broiled it right in the same baking dish, I always transfer to a broiling pan but I’m realizing how unnecessary that even is!!

    Good luck with the rest of your move & settling in!

      Thanks Aggie! I am lazy!

    I so wish I had this right now…so hungry! Glad you are moved and feel refreshed. Moving is so very difficult, in my humble opinion. I know as one gets older, it is more difficult physically…that’s me. πŸ™‚

    Enjoy your new home!

    This recipe is an example of how to cook salmon easily . You can plan to have seafood in two meals a week. Thanks for the post.

    Moving is TOUGH. Don’t ever want to do it again. Sure we will tough.
    Recipe looks yum. Will try for sure.

    1. bakedbree

      It is, but I also love that we get to do so many things in new places. It is a trade off.
