First Class Citrus Salmon Recipe

This wonderful recipe comes from Mission: Food- Nothing is Impossible a fun filled food blog, with first class cuisine cooked by a young passionate chef :-)

Pan-Roasted Salmon with Citrus-Balsamic Vinaigrette

Serves 4
(Slightly Adapted from The Union Square Cafe Cookbook)
(Printable Version)

3/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 T. extra-virgin olive oil
1 anchovy fillet, very finely minced (optional)
2 T. finely minced onion
2 tsp. each chopped parsley, basil, and mint
2 T. finely minced orange zest
1/8 tsp. kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

4 (6-oz) fillets of salmon, skin on or off
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 T. olive oil

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Combine all the sauce ingredients in a glass jar, cover tightly, and shake vigorously. Reserve.

Season the salmon with salt and pepper to taste. In an oven-proof skillet large enough to hold all the salmon, heat the olive oil over high heat. Place the salmon in the pan with its skin side down. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast for 8 to 10 minutes, until medium-rare, or longer if desired. Transfer the cooked salmon to a serving platter and keep warm while finishing the sauce.

Wipe out any remaining olive oil in the skillet and add the sauce. Heat through for a few seconds over high heat, spoon the sauce over the salmon, and serve.
