A simple orange juice, balsamic vinegar and ginger mixture is all it takes to transform salmon into a gourmet extravaganza!
INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 2 pounds salmon fillet
- 1 cup orange juice
- 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger root
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Place orange juice in a small saucepan over medium low heat. Cook and stir 10 to 15 minutes, until reduced by about 1/2 and thickened. Remove from heat, and allow to cool.
Stir balsamic vinegar and ginger root into orange juice.
Line a medium baking dish with parchment paper. Place salmon fillet on paper, skin side down. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with 1/2 the orange juice mixture.
Bake salmon in the preheated oven 10 to 15 minutes. Brush with remaining marinade, and continue baking 10 to 15 minutes, until easily flaked with a fork.
