Orange Basil Sauce over Salmon Fillets

READY IN: 52mins
Recipe by Audrey M

This recipe offers a nice citrus taste to salmon. The prep time includes marinating of salmon fillets.


Very tasty recipe. Beautiful flavour. I love salmon of any description - When cooking fillets, I usually leave the skin on. During cooking the skin will "stick" to the surface of the utensil (pan, or grill). That's OK because the salmon meat will lift off the skin quite easily with a wide spatula (egg lifter for eg if indoors, or wide bbq spatula if outdoors). In that way you lose no salmon meat; the skin comes offthe utensil easily enough to discard.
