Salmon is one of the world’s healthiest foods. Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, vitamins D and B12, and protein, it’s an absolute powerhouse of good nutrition. Better yet, it tastes great! Perfect for the hot days of summer the sweet orange-ginger glaze is tinged with just a tinge of heat. If you prefer, an indoor grill or sauté pan can be used to cook the salmon.

Makes 4 servings
1/4 cup lime juice (about 2 large limes)
1/4 cup light orange juice
1/4 cup low-sugar orange marmalade
2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger (or 1 teaspoon powdered)
1/2 teaspoon dried mustard
Pinch of salt
Dash of hot pepper flakes
2 teaspoons butter
4 (five oz.) salmon fillets, rinsed and dried

  1. Combine the lime juice, orange juice, orange marmalade, ginger, mustard, salt, and pepper flakes in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer on low heat for 5 minutes, until reduced to almost one-half. Remove from heat; swirl in the butter. Set aside.
  2. While sauce is cooking, place salmon on a hot grill and cook for 5 minutes per side, or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  3. Spoon sauce across salmon and serve.
