Lime-Marinated Broiled Salmon
PreparationPlace first 5 ingredients in a blender; process until smooth. Pour into a large zip-top plastic bag. Add salmon, and seal and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, turning bag occasionally.
Remove salmon from bag, discarding marinade. Place salmon on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 8 minutes. Turn, and broil an additional 4 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with lime wedges.

1. One whole lime will squeeze 1/4 cup fresh lime juice, of course you could subsitute from lime juice concentrate--I just prefer this ingredient to be fresh;
2. Ground ginger and chopped thyme from your spice collection works just as well as fresh ginger and thyme;
3. Minced garlic from a jar works just the same as fresh chopped garlic; and
4. You can marinate more than 24 ounces of salmon using this recipe. I marinated 37 ounces for three hours and the flavor was absolutely scrumptious.
