Chile Ginger Glazed Salmon

Sweet and spicy, this dish comes together fast, and may even help you get lucky 🙂 

Shape magazine asked me to put together a few aphrodisiac recipes in honor of Valentine’s day, so I decided on this delicious chili ginger glaze, which contains a few of the foods purported to put you in the mood. 

Chiles: Chiles get your blood pumping, increasing circulation and stimulating nerve endings so that you feel more turned on.

Honey: This sweet and sticky nectar is filled with B vitamins, needed for testosterone production, and boron, which helps the body use and metabolize estrogen. Lore has it that the term “honeymoon” comes from an old tradition in which newlyweds drank a honey drink for 30 days after marriage to help them get acquainted in the bedroom, and thus set the foundation for a healthy marriage.

Whether or not the dish actually helps you score, I don’t know, but it is a quick, easy, and delicious dish to put together for your Valentine.

  1. I made this the other night and not only is it very easy to make, but it turns out SO well. My salmon filets were 6 oz, so I just added 2 minutes of bake time and they were perfect. I have never made fish before bc I was intimidated by cooking it. I never thought it would turn out so great! Thanks Maria!
