Sweet And Spicy Orange Salmon.

I made this one today and it was so delicious.

INGREDIENTS.

1 tbsp olive or avocado oil

4 (5 or 6-oz) wild-caught salmon fillets

Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

2 green onions, finely chopped

Sweet Spicy Orange Sauce.

2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice

4 cloves fresh garlic, minced

1 small sweet onion, finely chopped or grated

1 tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and grated

1/4 cup no sugar added orange marmalade

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 red chilli pepper, seeded and finely chopped

2 tbsp gluten-free flour or arrowroot powder.

INSTRUCTIONS.

Heat a medium wok/saucepan over medium-low heat.

Add in all of your orange sauce ingredients and whisk until well combined.

Simmer for about 10 minutes on low heat until sauce is slightly reduced and thickened a bit, stirring every second.

Next, using an immersion blender, very carefully puree this sauce until smooth, then cover with a lid and set aside.

Season your salmon fillets with sea salt and pepper.

Heat oil in a large wok/skillet and once hot add in salmon, sear until beautifully golden brown about 3 minutes on each side.

Drizzle in your sauce over and continue to cook until hot and bubbly, about 3-4 minutes more.

Once your fish is cooked and flakes easily with a fork, remove from heat and garnish with green onion.

Serve with cooked brown rice and chopped cucumbers if desired.
