Ingredients

  • 2 pounds salmon fillet

  • 1 cup orange juice

  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger root

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Place orange juice in a small saucepan over medium low heat. Cook and stir 10 to 15 minutes, until reduced by about 1/2 and thickened. Remove from heat, and allow to cool.

  3. Stir balsamic vinegar and ginger root into orange juice.

  4. Line a medium baking dish with parchment paper. Place salmon fillet on paper, skin side down. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with 1/2 the orange juice mixture.
