Energy Boosting Foods: Honey Soy Broiled Salmon

Working long hours at my aunt's boba shop leaves me drained and tired most numerous times. So I've been in search of food that boost my energy level. I'm not much of a coffee girl but I still need something. One of the recommended food for energy that I read online is salmon because of its high omega-3 fatty acid content.

Naturally, I went to my favorite place online to learn how to cook...Youtube! My search yielded a simple recipe for honey soy broiled salmon. And it's delicious.
