This recipe is so simple, yet so good. I often find myself looking for new things to do with salmon and I rarely make it lately because it has such it’s own flavor, that I have to really be in the mood. I am strange in that I don’t repeat meals a lot on my meal plan monthly. If you notice on my meal plans, there are only a couple of dishes that I actually make more than once a month. That’s just me, I like change and I am not big on leftovers either.
If you are looking for a great salmon dish that is quick and easy to put together, then give this one a try. Leave the skin on as I did for that “crispy” skin. This recipe is so easy and I guarantee you have everything to make it already (except maybe the salmon). Use fresh squeezed orange juice, or one of those all natural numbers to get the best flavors. Love it! I served this with a creamy mushroom risotto, and asparagus spears.
