I have always loved eating sockeye salmon since the days when my mother used to make it for our family. Currently, I eat sockeye salmon at least once or twice per week, which is the recommended amount your body needs. My recipe is easy to prepare and brings out the superb flavor of the salmon without tasting "fishy".
4 Alaskan sockeye salmon fillets
4 T. raw or homegrown honey
1 Mandarin orange (mix in blender for juice w/pulp)
sea salt & ground pepper
extra virgin olive oil
Mandarin orange slices
Preparation: Heat oven to 400 degrees
Line a 9x13x2-inch baking pan with foil. Drizzle just enough olive oil in the pan and coat both sides of each fillet. Place salmon skin-side down in the pan. Combine the honey and orange juice in a bowl and stir until well blended. Salt and pepper the fillets. Spoon the honey and orange mixture over the fillets.
Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork.
