An easy Chinese orange sauce is prepared & brushed over Orange Glazed Salmon and colorful vegetables in this healthy, simple, 29 minute foil dinner recipe!
One of my favorite things about living in San Diego is the abundance of fresh seafood, right in my backyard!
I recently moved from downtown to the beach and just up the hill from my new home is a place I love called Catalina Offshore. They provide seafood for all of the best restaurants in San Diego, and they’re open to the public, so you can go in and buy the best stuff that restaurants use to serve at home in your own kitchen!
I went in the other day on a mission for some delicious salmon and came out with the most buttery, melt-in-your-mouth salmon I’ve ever tasted! I used it in this Orange Glazed Salmon recipe that was inspired by two of my current favorites, Chinese Orange Chicken and Pesto Baked Salmon Foil Dinners.
I could drink the sauce on that Chinese Orange Chicken which is why I had to find another recipe to use it in! And I love foil dinners because they’re easy to make, and SO easy to clean up!
- ¼ cup fresh squeezed orange juice
- 1 tsp orange zest
- 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
- 2 tbsp soy sauce (tamari for gluten free)
- 1 tsp sriracha
- 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
- ¼ tsp ground ginger
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 lb salmon (sliced into 2 fillets)
- 1 red bell pepper (sliced)
- 1 cup carrots (sliced diagonally)
- 1 cup sugar snap peas
- 1 cup broccoli florets
- 4 cloves garlic (sliced)
- 1 cup onion (sliced)
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Combine the first 8 ingredients in a small bowl to make the orange sauce.
Place the salmon in two large foil baskets on a baking sheet.
Scatter the bell pepper, carrots, peas, broccoli, garlic and onion around each piece of salmon.
Brush half of the orange sauce on the salmon and over the veggies. Reserve the remaining orange sauce for later.
Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven stir the vegetables, then brush the remaining orange sauce on the salmon and over the vegetables.
Place back into the oven for an additional 7-10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and garnish with sesame seeds and diced green onions if you’d like!
Roasting the veggies in the orange sauce gives them so much flavor and they come out with the perfect slightly crispy texture, and the salmon seriously melts in your mouth!
