Date night, tonight? Maybe this will give you pause to stay in and cook! dianemorrisey posted this a few weeks ago and I am so happy I had the chance to make it because it surpassed all my expectations. The seared salmon is so easy and delicious. Seared Salmon with Orange Soy Honey Sauce: INGREDIENTS
2 tablespoons canola oil, or other neutral oil
4-5 fillets salmon
1 orange, zested
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 (2-inch) knob ginger, grated
3 cloves garlic, grated
1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
2 tablespoon chopped chives
Combine juice, zest, honey, soy, ginger, garlic, chili and salt and pepper. Set aside. Season salmon with salt and pepper.
Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Place salmon flesh side down and don’t touch! Sear for 4 minutes. Flip it and let cook 3 more minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
Add the juice mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce and let simmer until it has reduced by half or until thickened and like syrup consistency. Add salmon back to pan and let cook together one more minute. Remove from heat, check for seasoning and sprinkle with chives.
I served with garlic spinach, quinoa and raisins. Stir fried them with olive oil in a fry pan (quinoa was prepared and added).
