    • email print
  • Nonstick cooking spray, as needed
    3/4 cup honey
    6 tablespoons orange juice
    6 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
    Salt, to taste
    Ground black pepper, to taste
    2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
    Adjust oven rack to upper-third position and preheat oven to 500 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with heavy-duty foil and spray with some of the nonstick cooking spray.
    Combine the honey and orange juice in a small saucepan, bring to a boil over medium-high heat, lower heat and simmer until syrupy and thick, about 5 minutes.
    Arrange the salmon fillets, skin-sides down, on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Bake for 5 minutes, brush with about half of glaze and continue to bake until fish is baked through, another 5 minutes. Brush with remaining glaze, sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve immediately.
    Makes 6 servings.
