Simple Honey Orange Salmon

INGREDIENTS

--- advertisement ---

1 pound of salmon
2 tablespoons honey (2 tablespoons per pound)
3 oranges
1 tablespoon coconut or olive oil
option: ginger

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Place the salmon on a plate to make sure the liquids stay put. Squeeze some honey over the salmon (I use about 2 tablespoons per pound of salmon). Cut 1 orange in thin slices and lay them all over the salmon.
Option* – peel fresh ginger and cut it in large thin pieces. Use that to cover the fish in places between the orange slices.
2. Place the fish (now covered in orange and ginger slices in a zip lock bag. Squeeze 2 more oranges into the Ziploc bag. Close it and leave it in your fridge overnight.
3. Put a drop of coconut or olive oil in the pan and cook each side on medium heat for 5-10 minutes. (Baking it in the oven is also delicious. I prefer to leave the ginger and orange slices on the salmon when cooking it).
