Orange Ginger Salmon & Honey Flaxseed Green Beans

Orange Ginger Salmon & Honey Flaxseed Green Beans


  • 4 Cups Green Beans
  • Olive Oil
  • Low Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 2 Tablespoons Flaxseeds (or sesame seeds)
  • 1/2 Small Orange
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon Red Wine Vinaigrette
  • Salmon Fillet
  • Instant Rice


  1.  Cut the ends off of the green beans and add them to a pot of boiling water. Boil the green beans until they’re slightly soft, yet slightly crunchy.
  2.  Add two tablespoons of olive oil to a frying pan and add the green beans. Cook until they’re lightly brown and turn heat off. Add one tablespoon of low sodium soy sauce, 1 tablespoon honey and two tablespoons of flaxseeds.
  3. Squeeze the juice from 1/2 of a small orange into a small bowl. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar,1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger, 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce and 1 tablespoon red wine vinaigrette. Massage the salmon in the sauce. Sprinkle black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder over the salmon.
  4.  Bake the salmon for about 17-20 minutes. All salmon cooks differently depending on your oven or the size of your salmon. Just feel the center and if it’s “bouncy” it’s done. While the salmon is cooking, boil the rice. (or cook it accordingly to the box)
  5.  We also added in some egg rolls for something extra. You can find the egg rolls in the freezer section at Food Lion.
  6. This dinner was absolute delicious and filling. It was also very heathy!

    Tara, do you think this recipe would work with any other type of fish such as Mahi Mahi or Cod?

    White rice is not a complex carb.

    Salmon is my favorite! Back when I was in college and went home for a weekend, my mom knew exactly what to make me on my first night back. Salmon with a ginger/soy sauce marinade, baked zucchini and brown rice. I’ve never thought to try it with the juice of an orange. I will definitely have to make this soon!

      I actually hated salmon until I got to college! I fell in love with it after my mom made it for me and she also made it everytime I came home! Baked zucchini sounds so good for tonight 🙂

    Those green beans look so good, my favorite veggie. I’m working on cooking at home more this year too. So far so good, I enjoy cooking.

      Me too! Last week was kind of crazy because we went out with family for my birthday and were working on the house and the appliances aren’t in there yet, so we had to go out, and this week will be hard since we are traveling, but hopefully I can keep sticking to it as much as I can! It gets hard.
