Ingredients

  • 8 salmon fillets (approx. 6 oz/175 g each)
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) melted butter
  • salt and white pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) finely grated orange zest
  • 1 1/4 cups (300 mL) orange juice
  • 1 cup (250 mL) chicken or vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) lime juice
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) packed yellow sugar
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 medium garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh mint or cilantro
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) lightly toasted almonds

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C). Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the salmon in a single layer on the baking sheet, skin-side down. Brush fish with the melted butter. Season with salt and pepper. Bake 15 min., or until salmon is just cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, in saucepan, whisk together orange zest, orange juice, stock, lime juice, sugar, cornstarch, soy sauce, ginger and garlic. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat for a few minutes, until the sauce is slightly thickened. Stir in mint or cilantro. Cover and keep warm on low heat.
  3. Plate cooked salmon. Drizzle with sauce and sprinkle with almonds to serve.
