Meals I Can Make: Orange Glazed Salmon
This is a super simple one-pan sort of dinner. One of those twenty minute meals you cook up last minute: make the sauce, add the salmon, and done. This pairs great with quinoa or brown rice and some broccoli!
Orange Glazed Pan-Seared Salmon
4 salmon fillets
1 large orange, juiced
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp minced garlic
¼ tsp sea salt
1 tbsp avocado oil (or favorite high-heat oil)
1 tbsp fresh rosemary
10-inch cast-iron skillet (or whatever size skillet you have on hand, adjusting measurements if needed)
Remove salmon from refrigerator. Before cooking, use a paper towel to pat each fillet dry.
Allow salmon to sit until room temperature.
Sprinkle sea salt over the fillets.
Add oil to skillet and heat skillet over medium-high heat.
In a small mixing bowl, add orange juice and honey and mix well.
Place two fillets skin-side up, add ½ tsp garlic and cook for 4-5 minutes.
Flip fillets, pour ½ the amount of the orange–honey mixture on top of fillets, add ½ tbsp rosemary and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Remove from skillet.
Repeat steps 6-8 for remaining two fillets.
Serve and enjoy!
Optional: garnish with fresh orange slices for a refreshing bite of orange while enjoying the dish.
Notes:*Great paired with quinoa. Also roasted carrots, asparagus and steamed broccoli
