Sweet Orange Salmon

I am a big fan of Cooking Light recipes. I guess it is a pretty well known fact because my good friend B gave me a Cooking Light Cookbook this year. I found this recipe in that book and salmon was on sale. The recipe was extremely easy and flavorful. The orange was not over-powering and the sugar cut through the acidity.

Sweet Orange Salmon (adapted from Cooking Light)

1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 salmon fillets
Cooking spray
  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Combine first 8 ingredients in a small bowl.
  3. Rub spice mixture over both sides of salmon fillets.
  4. Place salmon on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray.
  5. Broil for 8 minutes or until salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork.

  1. This looks delicious. We eat a lot of salmon in our house, so I'm always looking for new ways to cook it. Thanks!
