Citrus Glazed Salmon (serves 4)
- 1 pound of center-cut salmon fillet, skinned and cut into 4 portions
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 450°F. Season the salmon fillets lightly with salt and pepper and place on a non-stick baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes until salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
- 1/2 cup Mandarin Oranges, drained
- 1 ½ tablespoons Lime Juice
- 1 ½ tablespoons Lemon Juice
- 2 tablespoons Orange Juice
- 1 tablespoon Rice Wine Vinegar
- 2 Scallions, chopped
- Corn Starch, as needed
In a sauté pan over medium heat, add the mandarin oranges, lime juice, lemon juice, orange juice, rice wine vinegar and scallions. Heat until it begins to boil then turn down the heat to a low simmer and allow to slightly reduce. If a thicker sauce is preferred, add corn starch to thicken to desired consistency.
- 16-oz. bag, Petite-Cut Carrots
- 4 tablespoons Miso Paste
- 2 teaspoons Sesame Oil
Preheat oven to 450F. Toss carrots, miso paste and sesame oil together in a bowl. Spread onto a baking sheet. Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Ginger Snow Peas:
- 12 oz. Snow Peas, fresh or frozen
- ½ teaspoon Ginger, fresh, grated
- ¼ teaspoon Sesame Oil
Heat a sauté pan over medium heat with the sesame oil. When oil is heated, add the ginger and sauce for 1 minute. Add the snow peas and toss to coat with the oil and ginger. Saute 2-3 minutes if using fresh. Saute 7-8 minutes if using frozen.
