This is a delicious way to prepare Salmon (very kid-friendly flavor). The orange ginger sauce is a great compliment to the fish. I’m a big fan of wild caught salmon. It is higher in Omega 3’s and is less fatty than it’s farm-raised counterpart. If you’d like to read up on why you should go wild, check out this great article here.
Baked Salmon with Orange Ginger Sauce
1 whole wild caught salmon filet, skin-on
1 tbsp virgin coconut oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp local honey
1 tbsp orange zest
1 medium garlic clove, peeled and chopped
1 piece fresh ginger root (about 1″ size), peeled and chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp brown sugar
Place all ingredients for the sauce in a Vitamix or food processor and blend until smooth. Place salmon in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Pour sauce over the fish and garnish with sliced oranges. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes depending on the size of your filet. Baste fish with sauce every 5 minutes or so and remove from the oven when it flakes easily with a fork.
