Honey and Orange Glazed Salmon

So Ms. Foodie did an informal poll on Facebook about how I should prepare my Salmon.  While usually not lacking ideas, I just felt like finding out what other people do, and I was not disappointed! Definitely will store some of the suggestions for future use.

Tonight’s winner was a suggestion by my friend, Christine Heneise: Coating the Salmon with a honey and orange glaze. I tented the fillet in aluminum foil, then seasoned it with Thyme, Sea Salt and Ground Ginger.  I put a bit of honey in a ramekin, then microwaved for about 5-10 seconds to liquefy.

Using a pastry brush,  I coated the Salmon with the honey. Ms. Foodie just happened to have some fresh blood oranges on hand, so I cut one in half and squeezed the juice over the honeyed fillet, then cut the other half into slices, and placed them decoratively on top.

Grill it in a 400 degree oven for 25 minutes–35 if you like your fish crispier.  Brown Rice or pasta is a nice complement, or something creamy, like Alfredo or macaroni and cheese.
