omega goodness – bbq salmon fillets with sticky orange glaze

Omega-3s boost mood, fight depression, and may protect against Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. Add in salmon’s lean protein and vitamin D (a critical nutrient many women lack), and you’ve got yourself a near-perfect food.

Taken daily as a preventative, Omega-3 assists with degenerative disorders such as:

  1. asthma
  2. arthritis
  3. diabetes
  4. osteoporosis
  5. high cholesterol
  6. high blood pressure
  7. skin disorders
  8. depressive disorders
  9. attention disorders
  10. digestive difficulties

BBQ Salmon with Sticky Orange Glaze

  • 1kg salmon fillet, boneless and cut into 8 pieces
  • ½ cup orange marmalade
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger root, grated or finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 3 tbspn rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • coconut oil, for barbecuing

Cooking method … BBQ 15minutes

  1. Place the Salmon fillets into a plastic bag (saves on washing up).
  2. To make the glaze, combine marmalade, oil, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and vinegar and pour over the salmon. Leave to marinate for 1-2 hours.
  3. Heat the barbecue. Once it is hot, take the Salmon out of the marinade and place, skin side down, on top of the grill. Baste 1 or 2 times with the marinade and cook for about 5 minutes or until seared underneath.
  4. Carefully flip the Salmon over with a fish slice or spatula and baste again. Cook for a further 2 to 3 minutes on the other side.
  5. Lift the Salmon carefully off the barbecue and place it on a serving platter. Top with sesame seeds. Serve with your favourite salad.
  6. EAT and ENJOY 🙂

A few tips on barbecuing Salmon:

  • Get the barbecue really hot.
  • As long as the Salmon is well oiled it won’t stick. Of course, it helps if you don’t prod it and move it around every 30 seconds, if you do the Salmon will break up.
  • Wait until the flesh is seared before turning it over.
  • Only turn it over once. The best utensil for this is a wide spatula, big enough to lift the Salmon fillet in one go.
  • Don’t salt Salmon before grilling. This will dry the fish out.

    This sounds utterly delicious! Have you tried doing this in the oven? If so, how long would you recommend to bake and at what temperature? Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    Hi Kris, I’m sorry I’ve never tried this in the oven so I would hate to hazard a guess for you. I’m strictly a salmon the bbq girl 🙂
