Citrus Glazed Salmon

Hey guys! Long time not talk. Last week got kind of crazy with work and the holidays. Thank you Lord all of that is over. I had a great Christmas. How was yours? What did you get?

So after an eventful Christmas and a lazy Saturday I decided to cook one of my favorite dishes to cook. And to be honest I needed to eat something light after eating like a WWE wrestler on Christmas.

Honestly if you’ve never had my signature salmon before it could be a hit or miss. Some people either really love it or don’t like it. Not that it’s gross, but some people don’t like sweet salmon. So if that’s you, maybe you could make this for the boo or something.

Things you will need:

Salmon fillet

One lemon

One orange

Butter

Minced Garlic

Fresh Dill

Orange Juice

Brown Sugar

Cooking White Wine

Pre-heat oven to 375

Salmon:

Take your lemon and cut it in half. Slice one half and leave the other half. Do the same with your orange. Set those to the side.


In a small bowl mix together minced garlic and butter. This is to your desecration. You will be coating your salmon with this.

Take your salmon and place in on a baking sheet on a large piece of aluminum foil. Take your butter garlic mixture and spread over your salmon. Again, you can put as little or as much as you want according to how buttery/garlic you want it to taste. Remember will will be making a glaze.

After you spread the butter garlic mix you can season to your liking. I lightly seasoned with seasoning salt, pepper, and onion powder. After seasoning I sprinkled fresh dill on top. Again, I lightly seasoned it since a glazed was going over it.

Then you take your sliced lemons and oranges and placed on top of the salmon. Before placing your salmon in the oven you are going to tee-pee the aluminum foil. Depending on the size you may need two pieces, on going horizontal and one going vertical to do this method. Place salmon in oven for about 20 mins, depending on how you like your salmon cooked.

Glaze:

In a small pot pour about a cup of orange juice, two tablespoons of brown sugar, a few dashes of balsamic vinegar (be careful it comes out fast), a few dashes of cooking white wine and the juice from the other half of your lemon and orange. I personally just put the whole orange in. Let the glaze heat up before tasting. Add more to your liking. Once you have it to your desired taste bring to a boil and then put on low.

 

Once ย your glaze is to your liking and is a glaze like consistency put half of the glaze over the salmon. I like to do but the oven on broil for about five minutes after pouring the glaze on or you can just keep it in at the current temperature. After about five minutes…voila! I like to put a little extra glaze on once I plate it as well.


I paired my salmon with long grain wild rice and sauteed zucchini. So yummy! Do you plan on trying this? Let me know if you do and especially let me know how it turns out! Enjoy!
