    Serves: 4 

    • 380g uncooked white rice
    • 1 litre water
    • 4 (150g) salmon fillets
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 6 tablespoons orange juice
    • 6 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Meanwhile, season salmon fillets with salt and pepper.
    2. Spray a large frying pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Place salmon fillets into the frying pan and cook until golden, about 3 minutes on each side. Cover and reduce heat to medium and continue cooking until the salmon flakes easily with a fork, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Remove salmon from the frying pan and set aside. Stir orange juice and soy sauce into the same frying pan. Cook on high heat until slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the sesame oil. Spoon sauce over the salmon and serve with rice.

    The dish came out delicious, however I had to add a few modifications. First I increase the oj to about half a cup since I had large fillets, in addition I used perhaps 3 tablespoons of soy sauce. I also added some orange marmalade to give it extra sweetness. Aside from that my family enjoyed the salmon.  -  12 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I'm a salmon lover & always looking for new sauces and this was very good. I made it as L. Britten wrote it. The sauce was perfect and didn't overwhelm the flavor of the salmon. I used basmati rice & it lended well to the great flavors. This is a keeper!  -  16 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Had some slices of Alaska salmon[from Alaska] and saw this recipe and gave it a try.Liked it very much but when making it the next time will not put any salt on it it gets enough salt from the soy sauce.Maybe put more orange juice in it.I also used the zest from the orange which gave it more orange flavor  -  17 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
