MISSISSIPPI (WDAM) -

It's the first day of the new year, and many people are making resolutions to eat healthier and lose weight. However, one of the hardest parts of a diet might be nothing finding food that is healthy AND tastes good. Well this tasty salmon recipe is the answer to that conundrum. Give a try next time you feel guilty for eating fast food three days in a row.

INGREDIENTS

Salmon

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 (4 oz) salmon fillets 
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish

  • Dash of salt
  • 1 pound broccoli florets 
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

PREPARATION

  1. For the salmon, heat vegetable oil on medium-high in a cast iron skillet. 
  2. For the broccoli, fill a medium pot halfway with water. Add a dash of salt and start boiling water.
