Ingredients

  • 300 gr fresh salmon fillet
  • 1 tsp za'atar optional
  • sea salt and pepper

For the marinade:

  • 1 tsp organic honey
  • 1 tsp soy sauce I use GF soy sauce
  • juice of 1 orange
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger grated
  • 1 tsp garlic clove grated

To serve:

Instructions

  • In a large zip-lock bag, combine all marinade ingredients and mix well.
  • Place the salmon in the bag and seal tightly, then gently massage the bag to distribute the marinade. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes or up to 2 hours for stronger flavour.
  • Lightly grease with oil a skillet and heat to medium heat.
  • Remove the salmon from the marinade, and reserve the marinade for later.
  • Pat the salmon dry with kitchen paper, then season with za'atar and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Sear the salmon, skin down, and cook over medium-low heat for about 5 mins, brushing the fish with the marinade as you cook. Discard leftover marinade.
  • Turn the fish and cook a further 2 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite salad on the side.

Notes

For baked version: Place the skinless salmon fillet on a large square of foil, pour over the marinade, arrange a few orange slices over the sides and bake in a preheated oven to 180C/360F for about 5-7 minutes or until salmon flakes off with a fork.
