Today I’m excited to percentage one of my recent preferred dinners – orange salmon fish. It’s a healthy dinner concept that is quick and easy.
- Juice from one orange about 1/4 cup
- Zest from one orange
- 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 3 tbsp sriracha more or less to taste
- Salmon fillet s, between 1 1/2 – 2 lbs total
- Whisk together orange juice, orange zest, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, and sriracha in a bowl.
- Reserve about 1/4 cup of the sauce in a separate bowl for glazing later on.
- Add remaining sauce to a shallow dish (or a plastic bag) and place the salmon in it to marinate for about 20 minutes, flipping the salmon over halfway through.
- As the salmon is marinating, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. You’ll want a rack to be situated in the middle of the oven, as well as one near the top.
- Line a baking sheet with foil and spray it with cooking spray.
- Once the salmon has finished marinating, place the salmon on the prepared sheet, skin side down, and bake on the middle rack for about 18 minutes.
- After 18 minutes, remove the sheet from the oven and brush the reserved 1/4 cup of sauce over the salmon fillets (see note).
- Increase oven temperature to 425 degrees F and place sheet on the upper oven rack.
- Broil for about 2 minutes, or until the edges of the salmon begin to crisp and brown.
Sometimes I separate out the reserved 1/4 cup of sauce into two bowls – one for brushing on the salmon before it broils and one for drizzling over the finished dish. The salmon fillets I used were about 1 1/2″ thick. If you have thinner fillets, you can reduce the cooking time accordingly. Typically you’ll want to cook the fish for about 6 minutes per 1/2Open Next Page To See More!
