- Serving 4 servings
Plate, baking sheet, oven, grater, whisk, teaspoon.
Step 1: prepare the fish fillet.I had one large salmon filet. Without removing it from the skin, it is worth checking to see if there are any small seeds left in the meat, and then simply cut into four portioned slices.
Step 2: prepare the citrus sauce.
In a bowl, mix the ground spices for the marinade.
Rub the same zest of orange.
And lime zest too. Just do not get to the white part.
Add salt to taste and ground black pepper for flavor.
Now cut the peeled lime in half and squeeze the juice out of it.
Squeeze an orange the same way.
Add viscous (always liquid) honey to the marinade.
Take a whisk and beat well. Mostly you need to ensure that the citrus juice and honey are combined. If you mix them, then all other spices are mixed even more.
Step 3: pickle salmon.Place the salmon fillet in the citrus marinade with the skin up. And leave it like this for a few (15-20) minutes at room temperature.
Step 4: bake citrus salmon.
Preheat the oven (190-200 degrees) and lightly grease the pan with vegetable oil. Place the salmon on the baking sheet with the skin up and send it to bake on 4-5 minutes. Place the pan with the fish closer to the top, not in the middle.
Then turn the fish upside down and brush the fillet with citrus marinade (1 tablespoon of marinade per 1 slice of salmon). Send the fish back to the oven (it’s better to put it into the grill mode) and bake salmon there 6-8 minutes until ready.
Step 5: Serve the Citrus Salmon.
“Citrus salmon” is served hot, thanks to honey, the fillet pieces acquire a glazed gloss on top and look very attractive on the plate, but taste great! Serve salmon with strawberry and avocado salsa and a light side dish.
Enjoy your meal!
