Typically, what’s good for the heart is good for the brain and not just when it comes to food. It’s true for exercise, sleep, and common health markers like blood pressure and blood sugar. The link is largely your blood vessels. Let’s keep your blood vessels healthy, and you’ve got healthy oxygen and nutrient flow to all parts of your body.
How this orange-glazed baked salmon recipe is good for you:
  • ½ cup orange juice without pulp
  • 1½ teaspoons freshly grated or jarred ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1½ teaspoons packed brown sugar
  • 4 salmon fillets (1 pound salmon)
  • chopped cilantro and chives
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. To prepare the orange juice reduction, place the orange juice and the ginger in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and continue a soft boil uncovered for about 10 minutes or until the juice is reduced to about ⅛ cup. You will need to keep an eye on it and adjust heat as necessary to avoid overboiling. The reduced juice will have a very dark color. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the Dijon mustard, rosemary and brown sugar.
  3. Place the salmon on a grill pan or a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Carefully spoon the orange juice glaze over the salmon, spreading with the back of the spoon for even coverage. Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes or until the fish flakes easily. Remove to a serving dish and sprinkle with chopped cilantro and chives.
