Orange - Glazed Salmon

Orange - Glazed Salmon
For as minimal as the ingredients are in this recipe, it is flavor filled! It manages to pack sweet, spicy, and zesty all into one amazing dish! It only takes roughly 6 minutes cook up! Throw in a salad and you will have a meal to remember!

Ingredients:2 Tbsp Cajun Spice
1/2 Tsp brown sugar
Pinch of kosher salt
2 boneless, fresh salmon fillets (6 oz. each)
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp orange marmalade
1 1/2 Tsp lime juice
Lime wedges

Combine: Cajun spice, brown sugar, and salt in a small bowl. Rub mixture over all surfaces of fillets. Saute fillets in oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-heat for 3-4 minutes. Turn fish and saute an additional 2-3 minutes.

Blend: Marmalade and lime juice; swirl in pan until marmalade is melted. Carefully turn fish to glaze on all sides. Fish is done when it begins to flake when tested with a fork

Serve: Slice up lime wedges and serve with fillets

I really loved how the ingredients brought out the best in the salmon and didn't cover up the naturally wonderful flavor of the fish itself! Enjoy!
