Asian Style Salmon Stir Fry

This is a super quick dinner but also makes a great dinner party meal too. I haven't included wholegrains in this recipe but it would be great served with rice noodles or rice.

Why add wholegrain carbohydrates? Try to think of the body like a car, the longer distant it goes, the more fuel it needs; therefore the more activity our body does, the more calories and carbohydrates it needs. So if we are really active and walk to work or school and train hard for an hour, then we need to make sure we have a higher intake of food than on the days that we don't train and sit in the office all day.

2. In a bowl combine soy sauce, honey, juice of 1/2 lemon, rice vinegar and grated ginger, add seasoning to taste. Place salmon on foil and fold up all four sides before spooning honey mixture onto each salmon fillet. Close up foil like a parcel and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
