I love salmon. It is by far my favorite fish. It is filled with nutrition, incredibly tasty, and satisfying. I am always changing it up with how I prepare and/or marinade so I do not get bored of my favorite fish. I am confident that you will love this bright and zesty orange sauce that complements the salmon perfectly. This recipe was enjoyed by both my children and husband. It was a win-win on all accounts.
