Wild Salmon in a Brown Sugar Orange Glaze served over Sweet Potato Mash


Happy Halloween everyone! Who says this evening is all about the little ones? Halloween is fun for everyone even if you don’t go “Trick or Treating”. So I decided to make an orange, festive and  healthy meal for this holiday and added some sweet flavor to the food.

Ingredients: Serves 1

  • 4 oz wild salmon fillet
  • salt to season
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • juice of 1/4 orange
  • orange zest
  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Fresh Tarragon for garnish

Wash and cube the sweet potato. Place in a pot of salted cold water and boil until fork tender, about 12 minutes. Drain and mash with the 1 tablespoon butter.

Zest some orange rind onto a plate for garnish.  Zest about 1 teaspoon into the olive oil. Season the salmon with salt. Melt the 1 teaspoon butter and add in 1 tablespoon orange juice and the light brown sugar. Mix well. In a non stick skillet heat the olive oil with orange zest. Place the salmon and cook for 3 minutes. Turn over and cook for 1 minute. Pour the brown sugar mixture over the salmon and cook for additional 2 minutes. Serve the salmon over the mashed sweet potato.
