Maple-Ginger Salmon with Peach Salsa

We have some super lovely peaches right now, and my Dad is here visiting, so of course we’re cooking up all kinds of delicious things in the kitchen. His doctor wants him to eat more fish, so whenever he is here I try to cook salmon for him.

After a quick Pinterest search, I found a recipe for Maple-Ginger Salmon with Peach Salsa, and it turned out so delicious that I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever cooked. I hope you enjoy as much as we did!

Maple-Ginger Salmon with Peach Salsa
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4

Salmon:
1 lb salmon
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp soy sauce (can use low sodium)
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated (if using ground powder, use 1/4 tsp)
1 garlic clove, minced (1/2 tsp)
salt & pepper to taste

Peach Salsa:
2 to 3 peaches, diced
juice of 1 lime (about 2 tsp)
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated (if using ground powder, use 1/4 tsp)
1 tbsp green onion, thinly sliced
2 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
cilantro, to taste (optional)

Preheat oven to 425F. Season salmon with salt & pepper, and place into greased shallow baking dish. Combine remaining ingredients under “Salmon” above, and pour over salmon. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until it flakes and is cooked in the middle (depends on thickness of your salmon).

Meanwhile, while salmon cooks, combine ingredients under “Peach Salsa” above in a small bowl. Set aside.

Serve salmon warm, topped with peach salsa, on top of a bed of rice. Enjoy!
