Citrus-Glazed Salmon
Ingredients
1
2 pound fresh or frozen salmon fillet, skin removed
 
Salt and ground black pepper
3/4
cup orange marmalade
2
green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)
1
clove garlic, minced
2
teaspoons dry white wine
1
teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1
teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
1/4
teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8
teaspoon five-spice powder
3
tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted
 
Steamed asparagus (optional)
Directions
  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Preheat oven to 450 degree F. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Measure the thickest portion of the fillet. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Place in a shallow baking pan; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl stir together marmalade, green onions, garlic, wine, ginger, mustard, cayenne pepper, and five-spice powder. Spoon mixture over salmon.
