Today is my birthday,  and I am trying new recipe idea. Yes, my husband can not cook, but he sure can open a fabulous bottle of wine!  I did have a choice of going out for dinner, but I chose to grill out and enjoy the beautiful Florida spring evening at our own patio.                                                                                                         This recipe idea is combination of my favorite ingredients: salmon, spice, ginger and fruit. My birthday meal was delicious. I will repeat this very soon.

  • 2 oranges juiced (about ⅔ cup)
  • 1 tsp fresh orange peel
  • 1 tsp fresh minced ginger
  • 1 tsp cracked peppercorn
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 small shallot, peeled, very finely minced
  • 3 Tbsp light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pound of salmon fillet

In a small saucepan, combine all of the ingredients (except salmon) and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until thick and syrupy, about 5 minutes. Let cool. Place salmon fillet in a deep dish, skin side up, pour sauce over, marinate 20-30 minutes. Place the salmon on the cedar plank. Save the marinade and place in a bowl and microwave for 2-3 minutes to kill bacteria. Grill the salmon about 20 minutes marinating after 15 minutes. Enjoy.

    This sounds delicious! Love that most of the ingredients you used are pretty much kitchen staples!

      I hope you have a chance to try it. You could also use the glaze on baked salmon rather than grilling it.
