Orange-Glazed Salmon Again
Salmon was on sale this week and so this recipe has been in the back of my mind all week. I made this salmon recipe earlier this summer and it stuck in my mind because it is so good. It's nice to have a few variations for an ingredient that you love to cook. Our favorite will always be the Brown Sugar and Mustard Glazed Salmon, but this one definitely gives our original a run for the money.
I made the Home-Style Fries again and our other side was a squash saute (a little onion, a zucchini and a yellow squash both cut into half-moons sauteed in a little olive oil with a sprinkling of salt and pepper and a pinch of sugar to bring out the natural sweetness of the vegetables).
The salmon recipe is from Cuisine at Home for Two.
2 tablespoons Cajun spice
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
pinch kosher salt
2 6 oz. boneless, skinless fresh salmon fillets
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons orange marmalade
1 1/2 teaspoons lime juice
Combine Cajun spice, brown sugar and salt in a small bowl. Rub mixture over all surfaces of fillets. Saute fillets in oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes. Turn fish and saute an additional 2-3 minutes.
Blend marmalade and lime juice in a small bowl add to pan with salmon. Swirl mixture in pan until marmalade is melted. Carefully turn fish to coat all sides with the glaze. Fish is done when it begins to flake with a fork.
Serve fillets with lime wedges.
