Hot Honey Orange Salmon

Simple and delicious, perfectly sweet and a teensy bit spicy. This is one of my favorite simple ways to prepare salmon. The sriracha and honey complement the salmon but do not mask its flavor. The sauce may seem very spicy if you taste it alone but drizzling it on top of the salmon balances it out nicely.

What you need:

1 tbsp sriracha

zest half an orange (about 1 tsp)

juice of half an orange

2 tbsp honey

salt and pepper

1 lb of Atlantic salmon

Mix the first four ingredients and microwave for 30 seconds to make it easier to combine. Preheat oven to 400° and sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. Pour honey orange mixture evenly on top of the salmon. Bake for 10-12 minutes if portioned out into small filets or 15-18 minutes for one large piece of salmon. Keep an eye on it, it’s finished when internal temperature is 145°. I like to flash broil it for just about 1 minute at the end to lightly caramelize the top, but be quick so you don’t burn it!

This pairs really well with sesame snow peas :

1 tbsp sesame oil

2 tbsp butter

8 oz fresh snow peas

pinch of salt and pepper

1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

Combine all ingredients and cook over medium heat in a shallow pan. Stir at around 2-3 minutes and cook for another 2-3 minutes. The peas should remain bright green and vibrant.
