Baked Citrus Salmon

Baked Citrus SalmonI wanted to take a more refreshing and light twist on salmon, and came up with a light fruit glaze to top off the fish. Salmon is my favorite fish, but I like to keep it not quite so fishy. This goes well with a bright green salad or other fresh vegetables.

2 5oz pieces of salmon
1 large lemon, sliced
1 large lemon, juiced
3/4 cup mandarin oranges
1 lime, juiced
zest of 1 lime
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 small shallot, chopped
salt and pepper, to taste

In a skillet on the stove, place the mandarin oranges, lime juice and zest, lemon juice, and shallot. Over medium heat cook it until it gets to a light boil, then reduce the heat and cook until it’s at your preferred consistency. Place on top of the salmon when it’s done cooking and serve hot. Serves 2.
