Salmon #14: A l’Orange

Since trying Salmon with Grapefruit Sauce back at recipe #5 and getting less than favorable results, I’ve been a little reticent to try another salmon recipe flavoured with citrus. I need not have worried, however, because this recipe was quite good. I suspect it would do really well under the broiler as well- a good alternative for rainy winter days when firing up the barbecue is a miserable task.

Salmon with Ginger Orange Glaze
adapted from All Recipes
serves 3

1/4 cup orange marmalade
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 salmon filet
2 scallions, thinly sliced with green (optional)
1 Tbsp sesame seeds (optional)

Mix together marmalade, sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic and vinegar; set aside. Remove visible bones from salmon and drizzle with half the glaze. Grill over medium heat (we grill salmon on foil to minimize cleanup. The skin sticks to the foil and the fish never burns!) for ~10 minutes or until fish becomes opaque and flakes easily. Serve immediately; the original recipe suggests a sprinkling of green onions or sesame seeds but as you can see, I completely forgot.
