Crispy Orange-Glazed Salmon (Thai Inspired)

"From the magazine Cottage Living 3/2007. I like the way this sounds so it's here for safe keeping. The description in the magazine states that the sweetness of orange juice tempers the heat of the chili pepper and red pepper flakes in this Thai inspired dish, but it still has quite a kick. You can garnish with sprouts, fresh cilantro, carrot and pepper strips, and edamame. Serve over hot rice."

  1. Despite my marinating the salmon for a few hours in the fridge, the flavor did not really come thru. Pretty good tasting fish. Thank you for posting.


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
