soy ginger cedar wrapped salmon

Sometimes after a week of indulgent foods, all I crave something light and fresh. I was at the market racking my brain as to what to make for dinner when I saw these cedar wraps and the light bulb went on. Its a simple dish with a subtle cedar smokey flavor. I served it over a bed of mixed greens dressed with Newman's Own Low Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing. It was a perfect light summer time meal.

Soy Ginger Cedar Wrapped Salmon

1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 teaspoon ground ginger

4 6-ounce salmon fillets
1/2 onion sliced, optional
Pepper, sprinkle a little to finish, optional  
4 cedar wraps and string

Soak cedar wraps & string according to package directions, about 10 minutes. Then mix marinade ingredients together then add salmon. Let marinade for 30 minuets to an hour.

Remove cedar wraps from water and begin assembling salmon pouches. I placed a little bed of onions down before placing the salmon, but this step is optional. Repeat until all four pouches are made.

Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 10 minuets. Open your pouch and serve with a mixed green salad.
