I am what many would call a "Foodie" - amateurs who simply love food and/or drink for consumption, study, preparation and news.
Now the statement above should make it clear that I do not have any formal training when it comes to food preparation. I have, however, been told that I am a pretty good cook and I hope you enjoy reading this column as much as I enjoy writing it.

My husband loves salmon more than anyone in this family, so I’m always looking for new recipes that he can try (and prepare). This one had the added bonus of having an Asian spin to it so it’s got to be good, right? This is one I’ve yet to try, but I’m banking on it.
Honey garlic grilled salmon
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup orange juice
¼ cup honey
1 green onion, chopped
1½ pounds of salmon fillets
In a large self-closing plastic bag, combine the first six ingredients and mix well. Place the salmon in the bag and close. Turn the bag gently a few times to distribute the marinade. Refrigerate the salmon for 15 to 30 minutes, turning the bag occasionally.
Lightly grease a grill rack to medium heat and remove the salmon from the marinade, reserving the marinade.
Grill the salmon about 12 to 15 minutes per inch of thickness (making sure to turn the salmon about halfway through) or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Brush the salmon with the reserved marinade up until the last 5 minutes of cooking time then discard any leftover marinade. Serve with a green salad or your favorite vegetables.
For another layer of flavor add a teaspoon of fresh ginger to the marinade.
