For whatever reason, salmon does not like to have me cooking it. It always turns out dry and kind of tasteless. But this past Sunday, my grandparents were coming to lunch, and I invited my in-laws over to join us, and I needed something that would cook quickly. Experimental cooking on company? Why not? And who needs a recipe? Bah.
Sometimes I luck out. This turned out wonderfully well, and next time I have every intention of making tartar sauce to go with it (not because it especially needs it, but because I love tartar sauce.)
Orange Salmon (yes, I know salmon is naturally orange. I mean like the fruit, not the color.)
Rinse the salmon steak(s) and lay it out on foil. Shape the foil into enough of a bowl that it will hold liquid.
Douse the salmon well with lemon and/or orange juice (not from concentrate).
Season with garlic salt and pepper.
Layer thin slices of orange, onion and butter across the top of the fish and refrigerate for several hours.
Remove fish from refrigerator and pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
Drizzle olive oil up and down the length of the salmon and bake for 10-15 minutes or until done.
