For an alternative option, try marinating salmon in our spicy peanut sauce.
- In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, soy sauce, sesame oil, lemon zest, ginger, honey and garlic.
- Place salmon in a shallow dish; drizzle with sesame ginger mixture and set aside to marinate for 20 to 30 minutes.
- Heat a skillet over high heat. When pan is hot, add salmon fillets with sesame ginger mixture and reduce heat to medium; cover and cook for 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until fish is cooked through and flakes easily when tested with a fork.
- Drizzle salmon with any remaining sauce in pan; serve hot.

Always on the go? Being busy isn't an excuse to neglect your health.
It's hard to argue that our health is one of our most precious assets. Unfortunately, good health is something few of us fully appreciate until it starts depreciating. Most of us want to make our health a priority, but our busy lives get in the way of putting our health first, somehow we just can't find the time.
