Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki Sauce

Low calorie salmon recipes are definitely a must for anyone not only looking to lose weight, but also to eat healthy. This delicious Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki Sauce Recipe was truly one of the tastiest I’ve had. I added the 0 Calorie Orzo Pasta as well, to give this dish some more volume without added calories or points. Because the teriyaki sauce is so tangy and flavorful, it adds of lot of oomph to the orzo. Though this is not an official one of Weight Watchers Salmon Recipes, it’s definitely a healthy, low calorie meal idea for anyone watching their weight and trying to eat better. Enjoy!

Grilled Salmon Recipe with Teriyaki Sauce

– 1 (16 ounce) skinless salmon fillet (1 inch thick)
– non-fat cooking spray
– 1 package of Miracle Noodle’s Orzo Pasta
– ½ cup low sodium soy sauce
– ½ cup dry sherry
– 2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
– 2 tablespoon brown sugar
– 2 teaspoon garlic powder
– ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
– 1 teaspoon pepper

Combine the dry sherry, soy sauce, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, garlic powder, ground ginger and pepper in a shallow dish; stir well. Divide this mixture into half and set aside one half in a small bowl. With the other half of the mixture in the other bowl, add the fish; cover and marinate in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Coat the grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill over medium-hot coals (350-400 degrees F). Remove the fish from the marinade. Place the fish on the grill rack or in a grill basket coated with cooking spray. Grill, uncovered, for about 5-7 minutes on each side (or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork). Transfer the fish to a platter and keep warm. Drain and rinse your package or orzo. Squeeze dry with a paper towel, until orzo is damp, but not soaking wet. Put pasta in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for about 2-3 minutes. Place the reserved marinade in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Boil for about 5 minutes (or until the marinade becomes thick and syrupy). To serve, put 1/3 of the orzo onto a plate, top with 1/3 of the salmon. Then, spoon 1/3 of the marinade over the fish and orzo pasta; serve immediately.
