This flavorful salmon is something I usually make for dinner on a week night, but it can easily be a great addition to a Thanksgiving spread. Not only does it taste good, but it is a quick dish to make considering all the cooking that needs to get done on Thanksgiving day. The marinade is really tasty with a nice kick from the chili pepper and the honey balances all the flavors. I served this alongside a nice helping of bok choy, sauteed in a little garlic oil. Make this for a delicious weeknight protein or double the recipe and add it to your Thanksgiving menu. Your guests won’t be disappointed.
Marinating fish in a zip loc bag makes for a quick clean up.
Most Thanksgiving dinners, we cook a large chicken- the star of the show. One year we did cornish hens; perfect for a small group, but still poultry nonetheless. I’m usually not too crazy about meat dishes on thanksgiving, I’m actually very much a “sides” person. I love a little bit of this and that, but not much meat. My dad and I love fish so we usually make something small since we’re among the few who will eat it. Our table always consists of a variety of flavors; Asian, Caribbean, American etc. and our menu doesn’t really have a “theme.” If it tastes good; it goes on the table. This year I’m planning on adding this vibrantly flavored fish dish to our menu.
