Lunch / Dinner
Buying a side of salmon and filleting it yourself, then freezing individual portions, means this pantry meal is only as far away as your freezer. Orange-Glazed Salmon fillets and simple sautéed greens couldn’t be any better or easier. Orange marmalade and a touch of brown sugar lend a sweet element to the salmon. Cajun spice lends a little — you guessed it — spice. And lime juice freshens it all up.
How To Check Salmon For Bones
To check for pin bones, run your fingertips over the salmon fillet. Use needle-nose pliers to pull out any bones that you find.
Combine Cajun seasoning, brown sugar, and salt; rub on both sides of fillets.
Whisk together marmalade and lime juice; stir into skillet until marmalade melts. Carefully flip fillets until coated with glaze on all sides. Continue to cook fillets until they flake easily with a fork.
Serve fillets with lime wedges.
