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!

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon dry ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup orange juice, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 9.5 oz jar plum sauce, divided
  • 2 lb salmon filets, skin on
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup chopped scallions
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil

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.

    Heat grapeseed oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium low heat.
