This Ginger Soy Salmon is a great way to impart a lot of flavor into your meal without a lot of ingredients or a lot of calories or carbs. Ginger is a very strong flavor, and using it fresh can really give food a zest. Pair it with soy sauce and chili pepper flakes to give it just the right amount of kick, and you’ve got a great marinade for your protein!
Vinegar is an often overlooked ingredient, but it is especially good in marinades because the acid can help tenderize meat. Lemon and Lime juice works great, too. You can use this Ginger Soy marinade with any meat of your choice. I let mine marinate overnight, but you could let it marinate for just a couple hours and still get a great flavor from it. If you want a more teriyaki style marinade, you could add some artificial sweetener to the marinade.
This was great paired with a simple salad and roasted asparagus, but it would also be wonderful over a bed of cauliflower fried rice!
