Orange Glazed Salmon

Have you seen the recent reports about the benefits of salmon? This fish is known to be rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, which has been proven to be helpful in reducing heart disease and cholesterol. I am just glad to know that something I like is actually on the good food list!

Salmon is our favorite fish. It can be one of the easiest things to prepare for a quick dinner, but also can be fancy enough for company. We enjoy it all the time.

You will find that I have a lot of salmon recipes... I am always trying something new. This is a great citrus-y dish that is light enough for a warm summer evening.
Orange Glazed Salmon
4 salmon steaks
1/2 cup marinade
1/2 cup orange juice
2 Tbs EVOO
1 tsp red pepper flakes
salt & pepper to taste
1 onion, sliced
1 orange, sliced

Place salmon in a combination of marinade and orange juice for 20 minutes. Heat olive oil in a skillet. Sprinkle fillets with red pepper flakes, place in the hot pan and sear both sides. Remove from heat. Pour the marinade into the skillet, bring to a boil and cook to reduce to a thickened liquid. Add onions and orange slices and cook in the simmering liquid until onions are tender. Return the fillets to the liquid and cook another 5-10 minutes until the fish is flaky. Serve with rice, using the orange marinade as a sweet glaze.

Y'all enjoy!
Sandi

Hi Sandi,

First of all, I'm tickled pink you found my place and stopped by for a visit.

Second, I actually found you several weeks ago. I believe it was Savvy Cityfarmer who steered me to your site because I'd just posted about Fannie Flagg.

When you visited you may have caught on that I'm up to there in parties and wedding plans. But as soon as all that is behind me, I plan to come back here and start digging through your archives. I love your site!

I'm sure I will enjoy this dish! I like salmon raw (like on sushi), but when cooked, would want citrus, like this orange sauce, to go with it :D

I know that I will enjoy this recipe, and my son will be thrilled to have a new one. Salmon is one of his favorites. It looks delicious!

Glenna~ they go together like peanut butter and jelly.
Barb~ Bring your shovel and start digging: ) We could share a glass of sweet tea.
Gattina~ I'm not real big on sushi... I need to learn to like it.
Southern Heart~ I hope your son enjoys it!

Yummers yummers on this recipe. I'm a big salmon lover.

Gee, too. How did I miss Cinco de Mayo? I guess it is not much of a thing here in Manhattan. We have a lot of trouble finding a good mex food restaurant.

Oh I love fish more than anything and have noticed children will eat salmon! That is surprising. I just came from the Neisz Vintage Home and they are showing this recipe of yours today...the pics look tasty!
