Expert Tips

Use chicken cutlets instead of fish for a dinner variation.

I get excited any time I have the opportunity to prepare salmon because it's my favorite fish to cook. I love that it cooks completely in less than 10 minutes and you can pretty much dress it up with any sauce you wish. This time, I decided to get creative and prepare a tangy and sweet sauce to drizzle over my favorite fish. I served it with rice and a salad but it can also be wrapped in a tortilla any time you're craving salmon tacos!

You can serve with pasta and a green salad.

Directions

  • 1 Combine ginger, nutmeg, 1/4 cup orange juice, garlic salt and 1/3 cup plum sauce in a large freezer bag. Add salmon filets, seal bag and shake to combine ingredients. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  • 2 In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add remaining orange juice, garlic, Sriracha sauce, soy sauce, toasted sesame oil and remaining plum sauce (about 1/3 cup). Stir for 7 minutes. Remove from heat, add scallions, set aside and let cool at room temperature.
  • 3 Heat grapeseed oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium low heat.
  • 4 Remove salmon filets from marinade and place on hot frying pan; discard marinade. Cook for 4 minutes on each side, turning filet over once. Pour sauce over filets and serve.
