We have a little Thai restaurant near our house that we go to every so often and I was craving it last night. Oh yeah and I’m a huge Sriracha fan! I was planning on making salmon yesterday so this recipe is what I came up with and it was a success! The heat from the Sriracha is calmed by the honey so it gives the glaze just the right amount of bite. My kids don’t like spicy foods and not that this is really that spicy, but any bit of heat and they run for the hills so I made them a separate piece of fish in the same dish. I drizzled theirs with a little butter and honey, garlic salt and pepper and they ate it right up. I was also thinking this dish would be perfect for a romantic dinner so as long as you’re not on a first date, the garlic breath just might be too much. HAHA! Really, this is a great dish for any night of the week! I hope you enjoy it!
Honey Sriracha Glazed Salmon with Seared Oranges
You'll feel like you're dining in Thailand as you eat this sweet and savory dish. Perfect for a special occasion, or a simple summer dinner.
For the Salmon:
- About 1 pound of Wild Caught Salmon (cut into 2-3 fillets)
- 1-2 Tbsp. Sriracha sauce (depending on how spicy you like it)
- 1/4 cup honey (like this organic brand here)
- 2 cloves of garlic finely minced
- 1/4 tsp. dried parsley
- salt for seasoning
For the Oranges:
- 1/2 small orange peeled and sectioned
- A drizzle of honey (about 1 Tbsp.)
- pinch of salt
- 2 Tbsp. water
- Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.
- Take your salmon and place in a lightly greased baking dish, skin side down. I recommend this non-stick spray here which is a coconut oil spray.
- Next make your glaze. Mix the honey, Sriracha, minced garlic and parsley in a small dish. Cover the salmon fillets in the glaze and sprinkle with a little salt.
- Bake for 15 min. or just until the fillets start to flake apart.
- While the salmon is baking make your oranges. On medium high heat, in a small non-stick skillet, place your oranges, honey, and salt. Cook for a few minutes until the honey starts to brown. When the honey is slightly brown and the oranges have begun to soften, de-glaze the pan with your water. Continue to sear the oranges until they are a nice brown color but not burned.
- Top the salmon with some chopped chives and your oranges. Serve with your choice of vegetable. Enjoy!
