This is a really quick glaze which you can whip up to make an impressive salmon dish! It's a modification of a Jamie Oliver recipe, where I've eliminated about half of the ingredients, and you won't miss them :) The taste is tangy and powerful and somewhat gourmet! I made this salmon recently for friends that were coming by in the afternoon, and I wanted to put out snacks. I prepped it early in the day, chilled it in the fridge and served it cold in the center of my snack board. While it is typically a main course dish served hot, this way of serving it was awesome, easy and a crowd pleaser.

Orange Dijon Glazed Salmon

  • 1/2 salmon on the skin
  • 2/3 cup dijon mustard (I like to use honey dijon)
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • Juice of 1/2 orange
  • 3 TBSP soy sauce
  • 1/2 TSP black pepper
  • 1 TBSP dried tarragon
Preparing the ingredients takes about 5 minutes.

Pre-heat oven to 400*. Line a baking sheet with foil. Rinse salmon on the skin, and pat dry with clean paper towel. Place on foil and set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, mix together all ingredients, only using half of the tarragon. Pour in a line down the center of the salmon and spread evenly over fish. Place in oven and bake for about 14 minutes. Keep your eye on the fish, no one likes a dry slab! Take out of the oven and crack the center with a fork. If it's moist and flaky, you are ready; if it's still fleshy and fighting your fork, keep cooking. If you want the top of the fish to really look impressive, broil until a light crust forms for the last 1 minute in the oven. Remove from the oven, and sprinkle with remaining tarragon.

Pour the glaze over the fish.

Don't forget to line the sheet with foil for quick clean up.
