A delicious, family-friendly, salmon recipe -- get those Omega 3s!

Asian Honey Glazed Salmon

1/4 c. packed cilantro leaves
2 scallions
2 tsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. grated ginger
Kosher salt and pepper
4 salmon fillets, about 6 oz. each
2 tsp. fresh lime juice
2 tsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. honey
2 tsp. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. sesame seeds

Preheat the grill over medium high. Oil the grates. Finely chop the cilantro and scallion and mix in the oil and ginger. Season with salt and pepper.

Cut two 3-inch slits in the fillets, going about 1/2 way through the salmon. Evenly stuff the slits with the herb mixture. Season the fish with salt and pepper.

Stir together the lime juice, soy, brown sugar, and honey until smooth. Place the salmon on the grill until well marked, 3 min. Turn the salmon and continue to cook, brushing the tops with the sauce, another 3 min. Transfer to a serving plate and sprinkle the tops with sesame seeds. Serve with edamame and lime wedges.

Broiler Directions:
Position an oven rack so that a baking sheet set on the rack is about 4 inches below the heat source. Preheat the broiler. Place the filets on a foil lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Broil, basting 3-4 times with the sauce, about 7 min.
