Make something unexpected and brilliantly colorful this weekend. Want an added bonus? It’s healthy. Not enough? Well it is also easy and tastes amazing. I love fish. It is a working gal’s best-friend. Not only does it balance out the 150 parties we seem to have around the office. Meaning donuts one day, and a birthday cake or two every week; but, it is also quick to prepare after a long days work.
This is also a beautiful way to utilize the amazing, flavor-packed goodness of jam in a savory form. You could substitute other jams of course! The orange plays well with the soy sauce and garlic in this recipe, but as always – be daring, experimental, and adventurous! That is how we learn and grow in the kitchen. Plus that is how new and amazing recipes are born.
I served mine with Black Bean & Corn Salas (recipe below) and couscous. It was a great balance to the caramelized sweetness of the salmon.
Orange Marmalade Glazed Salmon
- 1/4 cup orange marmalade
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 (1 1/2 pound) salmon fillet, or 4 salmon steaks
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to broil. Line a broiler pan with foil; set aside.
Combine the jam, soy sauce, and garlic in a small dish; whisk to combine.
Place the salmon on your prepared sheet/pan; pat dry with a paper towel and sprinkle with salt.
Spread the marmalade mixture over the fish; making sure top and sides are well coated. Place under the broiler for 6 to 8 minutes; fish should be done, slightly brown on top, and flake easily with a fork.
Serve hot with sides of your choice!
Black Bean & Corn Salsa
- 1 can black beans, rinsed
- 1 can whole kernel corn, rinsed
- 1/2 jalapeno, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
- 1/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
- 1/4 cup shallot, chopped or red onion
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- juice of 1/2 lime
- salt & pepper to taste
DIRECTIONS: Combine all ingredients, stir well, and serve. Refrigerate additional for future use.
NOTE: If you don’t want to serve it cold – saute in a couple Tablespoons of butter or oil for 4-5 minutes over medium high heat; stirring occasionally.
Super fast, super easy, and oh-so delicious!
Jam! It’s what’s for dinner,
