Here is a quick simple way to grill salmon. The grilled oranges are especially good if they are Mandarin.

Grilled Orange Salmon

  • 1-2 lb salmon fillet skin on
  • 2 Mandarin oranges peeled and separated in half
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp finely minced ginger
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt/pepper
  • Spinach washed and torn into bite sized leaves

Wash fish and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper. Combine remaining ingredients except orange halves and pour into a shallow dish just big enough to hold fish in 1 layer. Place fish skin side up into marinade and make sure it covers all the flesh. Let stand 30 minutes. Meanwhile prepare a fire. When coals are ready grill fish and orange halves until done. Meanwhile heat marinade to a boil and ten simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Serve fish on top of a bed of spinach with sauce drizzled on top with grilled orange slices.
