Citrus, Honey, and Ginger Baked Salmon

March 2, 2010

A few days ago, as I was tromping through the snow and slush, cursing winter under my breath, I was lamenting the lack of fresh local (read: affordable) produce this time of year. I saw some oranges on sale and threw them in the cart in the hopes that eating something from Florida would, perhaps, make me feel like I was from Florida.  Elias loves salmon, and so I knew that I wanted to try making it sometime. It was super easy! I don’t actually eat fish (or any meat for that matter) so I have to rely on Elias to be the taste tester, and he loved this salmon and gave it an enthusiastic “Is there any more?” rating.

There are zillions of salmon recipes out there. This one is Adapted from Erica‘s recipe.

Honey-Orange Baked Salmon – Serves 2

Printer-Friendly Recipe

2 Salmon Fillets (6 oz each)

2 Tablespoons Honey

1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger

zest of 1/2 an orange

zest of 1/2 a lime

4 orange slices

4 lime slices

salt and pepper

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove skin from salmon and place in a baking dish. (Alternatively, bake with the skin on, being sure to place the salmon skin side down in the baking dish). Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Whisk together honey, orange & lime juices, ginger and zests. (Hint: It’s easier to zest the fruit before squeezing the juice out of it!). Spoon the honey mixture over the fillets and top each fillet with an orange slice and a slice of lime. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.
