Asian Broiled Salmon
I first read this recipe in the Arizona Republic newspaper as a "Quick & Easy Meal" and thought I'd give it a try. Even though there is sugar in the orange juice, its negligible. Give it a try, its deeeeeeeeeeelicous!
1/4 cup bottled Stir-Fry Sauce (Classic or Cantonese)
1/4 cup Orange Juice (low sugar if you can find it)
2 tablespoons Cilantro (chopped)
2 skinless Salmon Steaks (or filets), 8 oz. each, 1 inch thick
- Move the broiler rack to the second shelf from the top.
- Heat the broiler.
- Mix the O.J., stir-fry sauce, & cilantro in a bowl. Whisking briskly.
- Reserve 3-4 tablespoons of the sauce in a seperate bowl for serving with the cooked fish.
- Line a broiling pan with aluminum floil for easy clean-up.
- Spray the foil with a non-stick cooking spray or lightly wipe with oil to prevent the fish from sticking.
- Brush both sides of the salmon and with the remaining sauce and place in pan.
- Broil for 5 minutes.
- Flip the fish and rebaste with the sauce.
- Broil another 5 minutes or so.
If broiling steaks, cook until the fish is slightly opaque at the center when tested with a knife.
If broiling filets, cook until the flesh is flakey when tested with a fork or knife.
- Remove from pan, plate, and drizzle with reserved sauce.
