  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet, 1 tablespoon sauce, and 1 tablespoon onions)

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions

Preparation

Preheat broiler.

Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Reserve 1/4 cup vinegar mixture.

Combine red pepper, salt, and five-spice powder; rub evenly over skinned side of salmon.

Place salmon, skin side down, on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 16 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness, brushing frequently with vinegar mixture.
