Salmon is so versatile, you can take it in so many directions. Not only is it delicious, but it's healthy and so quick to prepare. A perfect mid-week meal option. This orange, soy and ginger marinade is sweet, salty, sticky and aromatic. I love pouring it over white rice and digging in even after all the salmon has been demolished. It's definitely in my family's top 3 ways to enjoy fish.
I hope it becomes a favorite in your home too.
4 Salmon fillets with skin on
Zest and juice of 1 orange
1 tablespoon grated ginger
2 garlic cloves crushed
1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
1/4 cup spring onion sliced
Prepare the marinade by mixing the orange zest, juice, ginger, garlic, honey, soy, oil, salt, pepper and water in a bowl. Set aside.
Spray oil in a hot pan and place the salmon skin side down. Turn the salmon and sear on all sides. You want a golden crust on the fish. Remove from the pan and wipe the pan down.
Place the clean pan over the heat again and pour in the marinade. Place the salmon skin side up. The sauce will reduce and thicken around the fish.
Plate up by placing the salmon on a platter. Spoon the sauce over the salmon and sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds and spring onion.
Serve with rice and a fresh salad.
