Orange-Rosemary Glazed Salmon



I’ve talked before about my love of salmon.  Here, here, and here are some of my other favorite ways to prepare it.  This one is going on the list.  This one is definitely going on the list.

I found the recipe at this site, and made it as written, except that I doubled the sauce.  Well, actually I used half the amount of salmon and kept the sauce the same but…same thing.

I have a huge amount of rosemary growing in my front yard, and it has become one of my favorite flavors, besides making beautiful decorative plants to cascade over my stone wall.  It really comes through in this recipe, and the orange and honey provide just the right counterpoint.  IMG_1221orangesalmoncloseup

2 teaspoons olive oil
2 (6 oz) skinless salmon fillets (1-inch thick), rested at room temperature 10 minutes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2/3 cup fresh orange juice
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 Tablespoons honey
2 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

  • Add garlic and rosemary to pan and saute 20 seconds, then add 1/4 cup chicken broth and simmer until mostly reduced. Stir in orange zest, orange juice, lemon juice and honey. In a small bowl whisk together remaining 1 Tablespoon chicken broth with cornstarch.
