Citrus Glazed Salmon
Why I Love This Recipe
I've been trying to work healthier foods into our meals.... this is a yummy way to spice up plain salmon filets. Really easy too!
I served with steamed asparagus and crusty bread. Yummy!

2 green onions, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp. dry white wine
1 tsp. grated ginger

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

Rinse fish, pat dry.
Measure the thickest part of the fillet.
