Citrus Glazed Salmon

About This Recipe:

As everyone knows, I love all things citrus, so when I was thinking of a new salmon recipe it was only natural to test out a citrus glaze. Baked salmon can get very boring very quickly, but this dish is far from boring. The glaze gets super thick and sweet on the stovetop, and then even more intensified in the oven. It is very flavorful, and you don’t need much of it to pack a punch. I paired the salmon with roasted brussel sprouts and wild rice, but would also recommend roasted carrots, broccoli, etc.


Ingredients (4 servings)
-2 lbs salmon
-Olive oil
-Sesame seeds, for garnishing
-Optional sides: brussel sprouts & wild rice

Citrus Glaze
-1 orange, juiced
-1 lime, juiced
-1/4 cup chicken stock
-2 tbls brown sugar
-2 tbls soy sauce

Instructions (35 minutes)
1. In a small sauce pan over high heat, add in all of the glaze ingredients. Bring the mixture to a boil and then simmer for 5 minutes to reduce into a glaze. Let slightly cool.
2. Cut the salmon filet into 4 portions, and place in an oiled baking dish. Spoon 2/3 of the glaze over the salmon, and reserve 1/3 for later.
3. Bake the salmon at 425 degrees F for about 16 minutes depending on how thick your filets are.
4. Once the salmon is done, drizzle the remainder of the glaze over the salmon and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
