Honey gives this main dish a hint of caramel to balance its savory richness.
Glazed Salmon Fillets
¾ cup honey
6 tablespoons orange juice
6 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
Ground black pepper
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
Adjust oven rack to upper-third position and preheat oven to 500 degrees. Line rimmed baking sheet with heavy-duty foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Combine honey and orange juice in small saucepan, bring to boil over medium-high heat, lower heat, and simmer until syrupy and thick, about 5 minutes.
Arrange salmon fillets, skin side down, on baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 5 minutes, brush with about half of glaze and continue to bake until fish is baked through, another 5 minutes. Brush with remaining glaze, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve immediately.
Yield: Serves 6.
