Orange Teriyaki Glazed Salmon
This Orange Teriyaki Glazed Salmon is one of those easy recipes made with simple ingredients that yields a elegant dish with an incredible depth of flavor.
This simple marinade has an incredible combo of flavors. Fresh and light, slightly sweet and savory. After the salmon has marinated for awhile, the marinade is then simmered on the stove until it’s reduced into a wonderfully aromatic glaze that you’ll brush on the salmon as it cooks. You can bake this salmon in the oven anytime or grill it on your barbecue for a quintessential summer dish.
This Orange Teriyaki Glazed Salmon is one of my favorite salmon recipes. It’s probably the easiest and tastiest salmon you’ll ever make. Just serve with steamed vegetables, jasmine rice and a large salad for a perfect healthy meal.
The heart-healthy Omega-3 fat found in salmon is associated with a decreased risk of cardiovascular problems, such as heart attacks, strokes, heart arrhythmias, high blood pressure, and high triglycerides circulating in the blood. These benefits are best obtained when omega 3 rich fish is consumed 2 – 3 times a week. Omega 3s are also know to improve cognitive function, improve mood, offer joint protection, promote eye health, and a decreased risk in certain types of cancer.
