Orange-Soy Glazed Salmon

I stopped by the fish market yesterday and they had some really beautiful, fresh salmon. I haven't made it in awhile so I couldn't resist. Earlier in the week we accidentally bought two containers of orange juice so I came up with a marinade and glaze to make use of it. This experiment paid off- it was delicious! The salmon was tender, salty and sweet all at the same time. To top it off- it's really easy!

Ingredients (serves 2):
1 lb. fresh salmon, de-boned
1 cup pulp-free orange juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup olive oil

In a bowl, whisk together the orange juice, garlic, soy sauce and olive oil. Add the salmon and marinate about 10 minutes. (Don't leave any longer than that or the citrus will start to cook the fish.) Pour the marinade into a sauce pan and heat on high heat. Bring to a boil and whisk often to make sure it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. Place the fish on a broiler pan. Broil about 10-12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. It's best to keep an eye on it. It's done when it the layers flake apart with a fork and the inside is opaque. Remove from the broiler and set aside. Continue stirring the sauce until thickened, the consistency of honey. Plate the salmon and top with the glaze. Enjoy!
