Citrus Glazed Salmon and Salad
This fresh, vibrant dish features succulent salmon fillets covered with a tangy citrus glaze, served alongside a refreshing salad, making it a perfect choice for a light and flavorful dinner.
- On a cutting board, pat salmon dry with a paper towel. Season both sides with salt and black pepper, if desired.
- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Sear salmon until golden brown, 3–4 minutes. Add garlic, orange zest and juice, vinegar, soy sauce and red pepper to skillet. Gently flip salmon; cook, basting with sauce, until it flakes easily with a fork, 3–4 minutes more. Reserving liquid in skillet, transfer salmon to a plate and tent with foil.
- Reduce heat to low; whisk cornstarch into skillet until dissolved. Continue whisking until sauce thickens, 1–2 minutes. Remove from heat; return salmon to skillet and spoon with glaze.
- Prepare salad kits according to instructions. Serve with glazed salmon and garnish with mandarin orange slices.
- The acid of citrus offers a great counterbalance to the seafood's briny flavor, creating the perfect combination with every bite.
- For a soy- and gluten-free option, swap 1 tablespoon soy sauce to 1 tablespoon coconut amino.
