Ingredients
  • 1 C low-sodium chicken broth
  • ½ C shiitake mushroom caps, rinsed and sliced (or substitute dried shiitake mushrooms)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced (or 2 tsp ground)
  • ¼ C scallions (green onions), rinsed and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp lite soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil (optional)
  • 12 oz salmon fillet, cut into 4 portions (3 oz each)
Instructions
  1. Combine chicken broth, mushroom caps, ginger, scallions, soy sauce, and sesame oil (optional) in a large, shallow sauté pan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then lower heat and simmer for 2–3 minutes.
