An easy dinner for two that won't heat your kitchen up as it cooks very quickly. Easily doubled for 4 if you have a large skillet. Boneless salmon fillets can be substituted for salmon steaks if you hate picking out the bones.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup orange juice, preferably freshly-squeezed
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated gingerroot
  • 2 salmon steaks, 1 inch thick (about 1/2 lb total)
  • 1 orange, peeled and sliced thinly


  1. In a skillet (that has a lid), place orange juice, honey, and finely grated ginger; stir well to combine and bring to a boil.
  2. When boiling, add the salmon steaks, cover, and reduce heat so that the liquid mixture barely bubbles.
  3. Cook for 10 minutes, turning salmon after 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, with a sharp knife, cut bottom and top off of orange and place on a cutting board; following the curves of the orange, cut off peel; cut into thin slices.
  5. Remove salmon to dinner plates, turn heat to high, and cook liquids in pan until reduced by half; pour over salmon.
  6. Garnish with orange slices and serve.

Lennie! Terrific recipe! Hubby was so happy with his birthday dinner. I'm glad I bought an extra piece of salmon so we have leftovers. LOVED the sauce. Wouldn't change a thing. Next time I'll use the juicer though instead of squeezing the oranges by hand! THANX!

Delicious! Fantastic! I was very distracted while I was cooking and didn't even time it (probably cooked way too long!) and it still turned out great!! I did marinate the salmon in some orange juice, teriyaki marinade and soy sauce for a couple hours...but wow - what a great recipe! Thanks!
