Soy and Citrus Salmon

Soy and Citrus Salmon

So a few months ago I made an amazing soy and citrus glazed salmon. My dad even said that it was the best salmon he has ever had, so it got some pretty high praise. Now for me, it is not exactly a weeknight meal, when no-one else is home to enjoy it or help with the kids while I cook. It takes a few steps and some pre planning and more prep time to make the glaze but it was so, so, so, good. So I needed to get my soy and citrus salmon fix on a time budget. It honestly takes about 25 minutes to get this fish from fridge to plate, so I am in to that! Perfect for a weeknight meal.

Set your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Arrange your portion of salmon on a glass baking tray. This method works just as good for a individual portion as a family sized one. Drizzle thoroughly with low sodium soy sauce. On a family sized portion 1 use about 1/3 of a cup. Zest your fresh orange zest over the salmon as pictured. Put on the middle rack of the oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes depending on the portion size, preferred doneness, and thickness of fish. Quick and tasty! It even passed the toddler test in our house. If you have lemons around you can use their zest as well. I’ve tried both but I prefer it with the orange zest. Enjoy!
