Honey-ginger salmon

Coconut aminos are a new find for me, and I’m using it in place of whatever I used to use soy sauce for. It has a nearly neutral ph, which is good for someone who has interstitial cystitis. You can read more about how awesome coconut aminos are from Wellness Mama. I found out about it because Natural Grocers sends occasional ad magazines, and a recent one had a recipe for Honey-Ginger Salmon with Veggies for Two, which called for coconut aminos. The recipe looked good, but needed some modifying for us. The orange juice, garlic, cayenne, and broccoli had to go because all cause me problems in one way or another. We also cut the cabbage because my partner doesn’t like it. Here’s what we ended up with:


  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger root
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 wild salmon fillets


  • 2 tablespoons creamy almond butter
  • 4 tablespoons almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • Pinch of black pepper

Veggie noodles

  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger root
  • 2 small beets, peeled and spiralized
  • 2 large zucchini, peeled and spiralized

See the recipe from Natural Grocers for the rest of the instructions. Even if you’re not crazy about beets, this recipe is worth trying out. My partner doesn’t like beets all that much, but loved them in this recipe.
