Having moved to Ipswich less than five years ago, I was desperate to find the freshest fish available.

My quest was “sea to table.” Nothing worse than having to “eye” the freshness of fish while mentally blocking out the subliminal burning question of, “When was this fish actually caught?”

No middle buyer for me. Here is my recipe using Ipswich Shellfish Fish Market’s mouth-watering salmon.

Salmon with Ginger Sauce
Serves 4

1 1/2 pounds salmon filet, cut into four pieces
1 cup of orange juice
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoon powdered ginger
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Pinch of pepper
Cooking spray
(Optional garnish, chopped chives or dill)
(Delicious served with jasmine rice and baby green peas)

Combine all but salmon and cooking spray in a glass baking dish. Add salmon, skin side down. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for one hour.

Drain the fish, reserving marinade in a small saucepan. Place the salmon skin side down on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 9-13 minutes, depending upon “rare to well done” preference. Transfer to warm serving platter.

Boil the marinade for three minutes. Pour marinade over fish and enjoy!
