Ginger Soy Salmon

If you can get my 5-year-old and 2-year-old to eat salmon I would pay you a million dollars. Not really. But, seriously! It's so tasty and healthy, just C'mon, eat it already! My husband and I recently ate at a sushi restaurant and our table was directly across from a mother with her two sons who were digging into none other than, gasp, grilled salmon filets! No whining. No, "EWW, what's that!??" coming from their mouths. Just empty plates. I gaped. I poked Travis in the ribs. I outright stared. Well, I tried to serve it at our home, but with no such luck. Each child ate their obligatory "No Thank You" helping and went hungry that night. Sigh.
