Ginger Orange Glazed Salmon

  • 1 .75 to 1-pound salmon fillet
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 tablespoon stone ground mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons grapeseed or olive oil + more for drizzling
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
  1. In a small bowl or blender, combine the orange zest, grated ginger, mustard, garlic, orange juice, and 1 tablespoons of oil. Whisk or blend until well combined.
  2. Place the salmon fillet in a large zip-lock bag and pour the marinade into it. Allow the salmon to marinate overnight or at least for 1 hour.
  3. When ready to cook, place oven on the high broil setting and move one of the oven wracks to the notch that’s second to the top.
  4. Place salmon (including the marinade) in a casserole dish and lightly drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt.
  5. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the top of the salmon is crispy and the fish is cooked through.
  6. Serve with your favorite side dishes and enjoy
