Crispy-Skinned Orange Honey Salmon
made it | 0 reviews |
"Fresh, Asian-inspired salmon fillets with a crispy skin and an orange, ginger, and honey glaze. Unlike most similar recipes, this one is made without soy sauce and with totally fresh ingredients. The result is a bright, fresh fish with great taste and texture. The fresh ingredients are the star here: Don't substitute with dried, powdered, or frozen ingredients! I served on top of rice and steamed broccoli garnished with green onions."

Original recipe yields 4 servings (4 salmon fillets)
- Combine orange juice, honey, vinegar, olive oil, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, salt, and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag. Add salmon. Seal and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.
- Place a large cast iron skillet in the oven. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).
- Carefully remove skillet from oven when it just barely starts to smoke. Add vegetable oil and place salmon fillets, skin-side down, in the skillet.
- Bake in the hot oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, or to your desired doneness, 5 to 9 minutes. Serve immediately.
- Cook's Notes:
- The key to the crispy skin without burning is to get the cast iron pan prepared to the correct temperature. Since you are working with high-heat and oil, please be careful.
- Try making extra marinade and reduce it down for added sauce.
