Asian-Style Orange Sauced Norwegian Salmon with Sesame Broccoli
Easy and delicious!
Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: Asian
  • (4) 5-6 oz Norwegian Salmon fillets, skin removed
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • ½ cup rice cooking wine (I couldn’t find this at the store, so we used white wine)
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 4 each orange slices (and more for garnish if you like)
  • 3 cups broccoli, florets
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds, lightly toasted
  • 1 tbsp cilantro
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 375° F
  2. Make sauce: in a sauce pot, combine orange juice, rice cooking wine, soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger and sugar. Reduce until thickened (about ⅔ original volume)
  3. Arrange salmon fillets in oiled casserole dish. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Top each fillet with 1 slice of orange. Pour sauce into casserole dish
  4. Bake for 12–15 minutes or until salmon is pink in center.
While salmon is baking, cook broccoli: Blanch florets in large pot of salted boiling water until tender. Strain water and drain florets well. Toss with sesame oil, sesame seeds and dash of soy sauce

Arrange salmon on plate surrounded with broccoli florets. Garnish with chopped cilantro and orange zest. (Whoops! We forgot the cilantro”¦but I’m certain it would be a nice touch!)
