Broiled Ginger Salmon with Orange Ponzu Stir-Fry

If you're trying to take off those Holiday pounds, you're probably already sick of chicken, celery, carrots, tuna fish and apples.

I love broiled Salmon when it's cooked just the right way, and when it's full of citrus flavors, I love it even more.

This is another easy, healthy, delicious and FUN recipe to make.  It's ready in less than an hour and looks colorful and beautiful on a plate.
