Easy & Delicious Salmon

Did you ever get home after a long day of work and not felt like cooking a somewhat nutritious dinner?  Well, here is a perfect solution to that: a quick and easy, delicious grilled salmon recipe with some nutrient-rich sides.  This is my favorite way to cook salmon so far and it’s so simple.  You might even already have some of the ingredients in your pantry!
What you’ll need:
1-1/2 lbs salmon filets
1/3 cup of light soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 lemon (juice)
garlic powder to taste
salt to taste
Gather all ingredients listed and combine in a ziploc bag to marinate for anywhere between 30 minutes to 3 hours in the refrigerator.  You can even marinate it all day while you’re at work and take it out when you get home.  After marination is complete, cook on a grill (I used a George Foreman) until salmon flakes easily with a fork.  For some simple and healthy sides, get a steamable bag of broccoli or cook some rice. If you have a little more time, you could also make an orzo spinach salad like this one  or run to Whole Foods salad bar and pick theirs up, which is what we did here.  
What are some of your quick dinner ideas?
