Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, an important part of a healthy diet. Whenever possible purchase Wild Salmon as opposed to farmed Salmon. This is super easy to make with only a few ingredients and good for you too!
8 fresh wild salmon fillets, 3/4 inch thick (or cut your own with about 1- 1/2 pounds) Freshly ground black pepper
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 tsp cornstarch
1-3/4 cups of Organic Low Sodium Chicken Broth
3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp brown sugar
Place the fish into a 2 quart shallow baking dish and sprinkle with black pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
Bake @ 350 for 15 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
Grate 1 tsp of orange zest and squeeze 1 tbsp juice from the orange, set aside.
In a 2 quart saucepan, heat the cornstarch, broth, vinegar, brown sugar, orange juice and zest over medium-high heat to a boil.
Cook and stir until the moisture thickens.
Plate the salmon, spoon the sauce over the fillets and serve!
*This sauce is nice over grilled salmon too!
Add jasmine rice, lentils, potatoes and even orange slices on the side ~ enjoy!
