Spicy Orange Salmon

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
  • 4 5 or 6-oz wild caught salmon fillets
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 green onions finely sliced
  • Sweet + Spicy Orange Sauce:
  • 2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic minced
  • 1 small sweet onion finely chopped or grated
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger peeled and grated
  • 1/4 cup cup no sugar added orange marmalade
  • 2 Tbsps apple cider vinegar
  • 1 red chili seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsps gluten-free flour or Arrowroot powder
  • Optional: cooked brown rice chopped cucumbers drizzled with apple cider vinegar, sea salt & white pepper

Instructions

  • Heat a medium saucepan over medium-low heat.
  • Add in all of your orange sauce ingredients and whisk until well combined.
  • Simmer for about 10 minutes on low heat until sauce is slightly reduced and thickened a bit, stirring here and there.
  • Next, using an immersion blender, very carefully puree this sauce until smooth, then cover with lid and set aside.
  • Season your salmon fillets with sea salt and pepper.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet and once hot add in the salmon. Sear until beautifully golden brown about 3 minutes on each side.
  • Drizzle in your sauce over and continue to cook until hot and bubbly, about 3-4 minutes more.
  • Once your fish is cooked and flakes easily with a fork, remove from heat and garnish with green onions.
  • Serve with cooked brown rice and chopped cucumbers if desired.
  • This entire meal makes for a great meal prep idea! Simply store in sealed glass containers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
