Cook Time: 16 - 20 minutes
If you're planning to not serve a holiday turkey or ham, but instead want to serve something a little more upscale and unusual, this salmon dish might be the ticket. Meaty salmon fillets are broiled and coated with a sweet, but pungent glaze made from satsuma orange juice, soy sauce, fresh ginger, and other Asian-inspired ingredients. The fish and sauce cook quickly, so the only do-ahead part is the marination. Serve with a light green salad and a good white wine. This dish would also be good to make as a special New Year's dinner, if you're not planning on going out!
- 1 tbsp. grated satsuma orange rind
- 1 cup freshly squeezed satsuma orange juice (about 4 satsumas)
- 6 tbsp. reduced sodium soy sauce (or gluten-free tamari)
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp. canola oil
- 1 tbsp. honey
- 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
- 3 (1/4") slices peeled fresh ginger
- 6 (6 oz.) salmon fillets, about 1/2" thick
- 1 tbsp. water
- 1/2 tsp. cornstarch
- 2 satsuma oranges, peeled and separated into sections
- 2 tbsp. scallions, sliced thinly
- Nonstick cooking spray
Combine the first nine ingredients (through the ginger) in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add the salmon to the bag, squeeze out the air, and seal the bag tightly. Marinate in the refrigerator for one hour; turn the salmon occasionally to make sure all the fish is coated evenly. After an hour, remove the fish from the bag, reserving the marinade.
Strain the marinade through a sieve into a bowl; discard any remaining solids. Place the marinade in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, and cook until it is reduced to about 1 cup's worth of liquid (about 6 minutes).
Combine 1 tbsp. of water with the cornstarch in a small bowl; use a whisk to blend. Add the cornstarch slurry to the pan and bring back to a boil. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the orange sections and cook an additional 30 seconds. Set aside and keep it warm.
Preheat the broiler. Put the salmon on a broiler pan coated liberally with cooking spray. Broil for 8 minutes or until the desired degree of doneness is reached. Serve with the sauce. Sprinkle each fillet with the sliced scallions.
