I PUT MY GEORGE FOREMAN GRILL TO WORK…## ASIAN FLAVORED SALMON WITH CAPERS

It has been sometime since I’ve utilized my George Foreman grill. It has been just sitting in the corner practically gathering dust. Decided to put it to work  (well, after I cleaned it with a wet cloth), and made yours truly a nutritious meal. I went the omega fatty acids route.

I prepared my salmon (skin on) with a drizzle of olive oil, a seasoning of a pinch of salt and pepper and crushed garlic and set it aside. I did a quick three-minute pre-cook of the wedges of sweet potatoes in the microwave. Then, they were roasted in the oven at approximately 30 minutes at a temperature of 385 degrees until they were golden.

I made a blend of soy sauce, finely chopped root ginger, a squeeze of honey and dash of red wine vinegar. I warmed in the microwave for a minute. Then I removed garlic from salmon pieces in order to prevent burning. I made sure to spray Mr. Foreman. Salmon was grilled for approximately six minutes and then brushed with the sauce. A few capers were also added in sauce for acid and presentation.

I served my grilled Asian salmon with roasted sweet potato wedges and steamed  asparagus flavored with garlic olive oil.  With a squeeze of lemon juice I puckered up to an amazing and delicious dish.
