Orange-Glazed Salmon

Orange-glazed Salmon

This is such a simple dinner. I love those. Yet the flavor is present and satisfying. The salmon, in particular, is as easy as can be. It is all about the glaze. After pan searing and cooking the fish, you remove it from the skillet and put the ingredients for the glaze in. It takes all of 1 minute to "cook" the glaze and voilà! You have a great entrée.

The glaze: 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce, 3 tablespoons orange juice (I just use a fresh orange to squeeze the juice), 1/2 teaspoon dark sesame oil (put this in at the end and just stir it in).

The rice is very similar in ease. With your prepared rice (I made brown rice), you simply add 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger and 1/2 teaspoon orange rind. That is it!

The snow peas are even easier. All you do is steam them for a maximum of 3 minutes. You can then add a seasoning like herbes de Provence or a little butter spray to taste.

Calories for the meal are: 4 ounces of orange-glazed Salmon (148), 1/2 cup brown rice pilaf (108) and 1 cup snow peas (36) for a total of 292 for the complete meal.
