Citrus-Ginger-Honey Salmon

  • 1 lb. salmon fillets
  • 1 tsp. paprika-based seasoning blend - I used Mitchell Street Steak Seasoning
  • 1/4 c. honey - I used orange blossom honey
  • 1 blood orange - use half for zest and juice and half for slicing
  • 2 tsp. fresh grated ginger
  • 2 tsp. fresh grated orange zest - from the orange
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 T. fresh orange juice - from the orange

Preheat the oven to 400° F. Rinse and pat dry the salmon fillets and arrange them on a broiler pan. Liberally season the fish with your chosen paprika-based seasoning; set aside.

Combine the honey, grated ginger, minced garlic, orange zest, and orange juice in a small bowl. Brush the mixture over the salmon. Place the slices of blood orange around the fish. Brush with any remaining honey mixture.

Bake the fish and oranges for 25-35 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork, but is not dry. You can also broil it for 2-3 minutes at the end of baking to help caramelize the surface of the fish, if desired.

  • Yields: 2-3 servings
