Citrus Salmon Recipe

This light, refreshing salmon recipe is easy to prepare. Salmon is low in calories and saturated fat, yet high in protein, and full of heart-healthy omega-3 essential fatty acids.

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 6 Tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/8 tsp white pepper
  • 4 fresh salmon fillets (about 6 oz each)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Brush a 9 x 13-inch metal baking pan with olive oil. In a small bowl, combine orange and lemon juices, lemon zest, ginger and pepper. Place salmon in pan and pour juice mixture on top.
  2. Bake for about 10 minutes per inch of thickness, until salmon flakes easily. Remove salmon from oven, transfer to serving platter and keep warm. Transfer juice mixture to a small saucepan and boil liquid in the pan over medium heat until it thickens. Remove sauce from the heat and pour over salmon.
