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.

  • 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
