Baked Salmon with Orange Ginger Sauce

This is a delicious way to prepare Salmon (very kid-friendly flavor).  The orange ginger sauce is a great compliment to the fish.  I'm a big fan of wild caught salmon.  It is higher in Omega 3's and is less fatty than it's farm-raised counterpart.  If you'd like to read up on why you should go wild, check out this great article here.

Baked Salmon with Orange Ginger Sauce



Ingredients:
1 whole wild caught salmon filet, skin-on
1 tbsp virgin coconut oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp local honey
1 tbsp orange zest
1 medium garlic clove, peeled and chopped
1 piece fresh ginger root (about 1" size), peeled and chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp brown sugar

Place all ingredients for the sauce in a Vitamix or food processor and blend until smooth.  Place salmon in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.  Pour sauce over the fish and garnish with sliced oranges.  Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes depending on the size of your filet.  Baste fish with sauce every 5 minutes or so and remove from the oven when it flakes easily with a fork.
