Ginger and Lemon Salmon

On Wednesdays I like to cook up something quick and easy but really tasty! It is that part of the week when you just want to either put your feet up and relax or get out and do something fun. So the mid-week meal series I will bring you will have you enjoying your evenings without spending too much time cooking or cleaning!

Sockeye Salmon is running in BC so we like to make the most of it while they are at their best. Later on in the summer we are going to head out and do some fishing ourselves, last year we did it a bunch and nothing tastes better than catching a salmon and eating it the same day! Very hunter gatherer!

Here is a Chinook that Chris caught last year! He is in charge of the messy cleaning and filleting of the fish!! This is a quick recipe that is fresh and flavorful, I use a little ginger and lemon to enhance the fish but I like to keep the natural flavor. A study of 70,000 nurses showed that women who ate salmon which contains vital Omega 3 fatty acids were 22% less likely to be diagnosed with Endometriosis it also reduces the chance of heart disease.

Serves 2

Calories per serving with vegetables


  • 1/2 pound of salmon fillets
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • pepper to taste


Marinade the Salmon fillets for 1/2 an hour in the olive oil, ginger, pepper and the juice of 1/2 of the lemon. Pre-heat the grill to a medium heat and cook the salmon for 6 – 8 mins per side or until the salmon is still tender but flakes easily with a fork. Squeeze over some more lemon juice and serve with corn on the cob, new potatoes and broccoli.
