Day 127 : Honey Ginger Grilled Salmon

Happy Mother’s Day!  My day was filled with both joy and sadness.  Of course I am a mom to two wonderful little boys, but I am also a daughter and this is my first Mother’s Day since my own mother passed from breast cancer.  It was a bittersweet day.

Even though I had to cook for myself tonight (they did surprise me with breakfast) I wanted to make it something special for the occasion.  I decided that salmon was a good idea since we had to go grocery shopping today and this was just the first recipe I came across that looked good.  It is definitely an easy recipe, and the flavors were very nice.  I imagine as with most marinades the longer you let it sit the better the flavors, but I only had a few hours since I got the stuff this afternoon.  Even with the shorter marinade time the flavors were obvious in the salmon.  I grilled mine on the foreman and it only took a few minutes that way.
