Place all ingredients for the sauce in a mini food processor, or blender, and blend until smooth.
Place salmon, skin side down, in a cast-iron skillet or baking dish seasoned with a little olive oil. Pour sauce over the fish, using a pastry brush to coat the top. Top with a few orange slices, if desired.
Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes depending on the thickness of your filet. Baste fish with sauce every 5 minutes or so and remove from the oven when it flakes easily with a fork and reaches an internal temperature of 135-140 degrees F.
