I tried a new recipe for Orange Rosemary Glazed Salmon the other evening for our dinner. Whoa! It tasted absolutely fantastic, so I want to share the recipe on my blog today. Hopefully you will be inspired to make this salmon for your own dinner… you won’t regret it!

My husband and I love salmon, so I am constantly on the search for new ways to prepare it. I found this recipe on Pinterest, and it is now quite possibly one of my favorite recipes for  salmon.  It’s SOOOO good!

The original recipe was inspired by Cooking Light, and features pan-seared salmon fillets covered with a fresh, thickened citrus glaze. It’s delicious, and so very easy to prepare!  The recipe makes 4 servings.

How To Prepare Orange Rosemary Glazed Salmon

I only cooked 2 salmon fillets since only two of us were eating, but I kept the sauce amount the same as written (and saved the extra sauce for another time).  Here’s how to make this delicious orange rosemary glazed salmon:

Heat olive oil on medium-high heat in a large non-stick skillet. Salt and pepper salmon fillets on both sides. When olive oil is really hot (but not smoking), add the salmon to skillet (it should sizzle when it hits the pan).

Cook the salmon fillets for 3-4 minutes, then carefully turn salmon over and cook the other side for 3-4 minutes until fully cooked. When done and golden brown, remove the browned salmon from the skillet (leaving the hot oil in the skillet). Keep the cooked salmon warm.

Make The Sauce For Orange Rosemary Glazed Salmon

Turn the heat under the skillet to medium-low. Add the minced garlic and rosemary, and cook, stirring often, for about 20-30 seconds.

Pour 1/4 cup (4 Tablespoons) of chicken broth to the skillet. Stir the ingredients, to combine. Cook this on a low simmer until most of the liquid has reduced in volume.

The next thing to do is to add the orange zest, lemon juice, honey and orange juice to the skillet. Stir to combine. Now the orange sauce will begin to smell wonderful!

In small cup, stir together the remaining Tablespoon of chicken broth with the cornstarch until smooth.  Pour this mixture into the skillet, stirring well, as it is added.  Season the sauce with salt and pepper, to taste.

To Serve Orange Rosemary Glazed Salmon

Return the cooked salmon back into the skillet with the sauce. Spoon some of the sauce over each piece to cover. Garnish each fillet with a thin slice of orange, and a sprig of fresh rosemary (if desired).
