Recipe Ingredients for Salmon in Citrus Sauce

1 1/2 pounds salmon, skinned and cut into 4 pieces
1/2 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cups fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced

Recipe Directions for Salmon in Citrus Sauce

  1. Preheat broiler and place a stainless steel or cast iron skillet under broiler for about 10 minutes to get it very hot.

  2. Chop onions and garlic and let sit for 5 minutes to enhance their hidden health-promoting properties.

  3. While the skillet is heating, place chopped onion, garlic, fennel seeds, 2 tbsp lemon juice, and orange juice in a shallow, wide saucepan and cook on hight heat for about 10 - 15 minutes to reduce to half the volume.

  4. 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.

  5. Remove salmon from pan and place on platter. Season citrus sauce with salt and pepper and strain liquid over salmon. Sprinkle with finely chopped parsley.

  6. NOTE -- cooking time can be greatly reduced.
