Orange-Glazed Salmon

Life is busy! We are full time teachers, mothers, and we run a small cooking business.  We all are guilty of taking the easy way out and running to get take out.  For the same amount of time and possibly less money you could make this delicious, nutritious meal.

 Orange-Glazed Salmon


 2 tablespoons soy sauce
 2 tablespoons orange juice
 1 tablespoon honey
 3/4 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
 1/2 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil


 4 salmon fillets (about 6 oz each)
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
 1 tablespoon olive oil

1. Whisk soy sauce, juice, honey, ginger, vinegar and sesame oil in a small mixing bowl; set aside.
2. Season salmon with salt and pepper.  Heat olive oil in a medium nonstick skillet over high heat. Arrange salmon, skin side up, in skillet.  Brush with glaze.  Cook Salmon 4 minutes on each side or just until opaque. Turn and brush again.
3. Remove Salmon and cover to keep warm.  Place the remaining glaze in a small sauce pan, simmer and stir until thickened and reduced to about 1/4th cup.  Spoon over salmon.

I served this with an easy bagged Asian Salad from the grocery store.  All the flavors work perfectly together.
