EAT WELL: Salmon in Citrus Sauce

If you want to get over 100% of your daily value for omega-3 fatty acids today then try this delicious, easy-to-prepare salmon recipe. The tangy sauce is a great complement to the flavor of the salmon and it only takes minutes to prepare. Enjoy!

Prep and Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

1 ½ lbs salmon filets, skin and bones removed, cut into 4 pieces
½ medium sized onion, chopped
2 medium cloves garlic, chopped
2 TBS + 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 ½ cups fresh orange juice
1 tsp fennel seed
2 TBS minced fresh parsley, or if you have it, green fennel tops
salt & white pepper to taste

Directions:
Preheat broiler to high and place a stainless steel or cast iron skillet under broiler for about 10 minutes to get very hot.
Chop onions and garlic and let sit for 5minutes to enhance their hidden health-promoting properties.
While skillet is heating, place chopped onion, garlic, fennel seeds, lemon juice, and orange juice in a shallow, wide saucepan and cook on high heat for about 10-15 minutes to reduce to half the volume.
Season salmon pieces with 2 tsp lemon juice, salt and pepper and place on hot pan from broiler. Return pan to broiler (approximately 5-7 inches from heat) and broil salmon for about 7 minutes depending on thickness (10 minutes per inch of thickness). Do not turn, as salmon is cooking on both sides at once.
Remove salmon from pan, and place on platter. Season citrus sauce with salt and pepper and strain liquid over salmon. Discard rest. Sprinkle with finely chopped parsley.
Serves 4
