Here is a tasty recipe for Fall. Even nicer if you can go fishing and catch the salmon yourself.
- 4 salmon fillets, 5 to 6 oz each
- 1/2 large orange, zest and juice only
- 1/2 large lemon, juice only
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon chilli powder- use less if you do not want it to spicey
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
In a shallow dish (but large enough to hold the salmon), combine the juices, salt and pepper. Add the salmon, turning to coat with the marinade.Let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes, turning the fillets once.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Line a shallow baking pan with aluminum foil and grease with a little of the melted butter.
In a small dish, combine the orange zest, brown sugar, chilli powder and minced garlic.
Rub the marinated salmon with the brown sugar mixture. Place in the pan and drizzle with the remaining melted butter.
Bake for 8 to 12 minutes.
Man this is yummy for the tummy! This will work for a lot of different types of fish. Serve it up with some rice, and corn bread and you got a meal that will knock your socks off.
The first time, I had this was at a family gathering of a friend of mine. His grandmother was from Cuba. And it was her birthday. Man! The food was great, the music was great, and they had this punch..... I think I might have it written some where. But that is a story for some other time.
So enjoy, And feed your face!
