Salmon With Ginger and Orange Sauce

"This recipe is super simple, tastes wonderful is a low carb meal and only takes 30 minutes to make. I love fish and salmon is no exception, it has been on special at the moment which makes it an even better buy when you want a fish dinner. I have included the ingredients below of the vegetables I served this with for two so either serve it this way or it is also good with rice or noodles if you want to add some more carbs. The sauce would be enough to drizzle over 4 average size salmon fillets, mine were large. If you wanted to have enough liquid for 4 to go with rice or noodles and wanted the extra liquid. I think the sauce ingredients would would work fine doubled, I would not add too much more ginger though and the chili amount is fine as is."

  1. This was excellent, and I will definitely make it again. I subbed homemade habanero-peach jam for the marmalade since I didn't want to wait to make this until I could get to the store. I also baked it in the oven due to a shortage of burner space, but it turned out so well. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
  2. I love the sweet soy sauce Ketjap Manis. It is so good! I buy it and add it to rice sometimes, so this recipe was an eye catcher for me, and it was so good with the sweet and spicy flavors. We will definately be having this one again and soon!
