Salmon is one of my favorite meats. I really enjoy the flavor of salmon. It’s not as fishy as some types of fish and has a strong flavor that can be easily balanced with really delicious sauces. I like to serve my salmon with lemon, onions and dill or with a citrus salsa, but I thought I’d do something different. I didn’t want to just season the salmon with soy sauce, so I found a delicious glaze with orange juice and rice wine. Both the orange juice and rice wine helped to lighten the very strong flavor of the soy sauce. It was simple to make but really delicious. I decided to broil the salmon, since that was simple and quick. If you’re so inclined, you can make a second batch of sauce while the salmon is cooking to serve with the salmon. It’s delicious served with steamed rice, steamed or stir fried veggies and marinated cucumbers.
