Grilled Salmon with Orange Marinade
If you’re looking for an easy meat to marinade, salmon is a great go-to option. It quickly absorbs all the spices and seasonings of a sauce to create a flavor-filled dish. This salmon recipe embraces the sweetness of citrus and zings your palate with just the right amount of chili and cayenne.
- ¼ cup 100% orange juice
- 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp. raw honey
- 2 tsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. ground cumin
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper
- 4 (6-oz.) raw salmon fillets, about 1-inch thick
Here are your instructions:
Combine orange juice, lemon juice, honey, chili powder, cumin, salt, and cayenne in a small bowl; whisk to blend.
Place salmon in a shallow glass pan; top with marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 20 to 60 minutes.
Preheat grill or broiler to high.
Grill or broil salmon for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, brushing occasionally with marinade, or until salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork.
