Orange-Glazed Salmon

We are enjoying a few days’ respite at the beach. This is the best time of the year to be here! The beach and restaurants are practically empty but the weather is warm enough to enjoy sitting outside and reading. Tonight instead of going out, I decided to cook. We had this delicious salmon, Parmesan Cheese Grits (just add freshly grated Parmesan to my basic grits recipe), and steamed broccoli. The whole meal was ready in about 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Orange-Glazed Salmon
1 Tbsp. butter
1 shallot or small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
Salmon fillets
Zest and juice of 1 orange
Parmesan Cheese Grits
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill

1. Melt butter in a large skillet. Sauté shallot in 5 minutes or until tender; add garlic, and cook 1 minute. Add salmon, skin side down, and cook 2 to 3 minutes; turn over, and remove skin. Add in orange zest and juice. Cook salmon 2 to 3 additional minutes or until fish flakes with a fork. Spoon grits onto plates; top with salmon, and drizzle with orange sauce; sprinkle with dill. Serve immediately.
