Seared Salmon with Orange Glaze
Published: 12/28/2012


Not an ounce of flavor escapes this dish! The salmon is seared, trapping its rich flavor, briefly baked, and then drizzled with a thick, lightly fragranced orange ginger glaze – a balanced companion for a fish as flavorful as salmon. Salmon provides ample amounts of protein, B vitamins, vitamin A, and omega-3 oils.

Food as Medicine

Salmon are one of the richest dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids (one four-ounce serving contains 87 percent of the Daily Value). A recent study following individuals in Japan, China, the U.S. and the U.K. showed that those whose diets included greater amounts of omega-3s – from fish, nuts, seeds and certain vegetable oils – had lower blood pressure than those who consume less of these essential fatty acids. Oranges are rich in free radical-neutralizing vitamin C (just one orange contains 116 percent of the Daily Value), and can help prevent the dangerous oxidation of cholesterol. Further, compounds known as polymethoxylated flavones – found in orange peels, such as the zest used in this recipe – may have cholesterol-lowering benefits as well.
