the home chef … on orange-glazed salmon

By Harlene Deane

This salmon recipe is without a doubt one of my new favorites. Fresh fish is definitely the way to go with this one, but if you’re unsure of availability or quality, frozen works just fine.



Serves: 4

• 3 tbsp. Cajun seasoning*

• 1 tsp. brown sugar

• 1/4 tsp. kosher salt

• 4 boneless, skinless salmon fillets (about 6 oz. each)

• 2 tbsp. vegetable oil

• 1/4 cup orange marmalade

• 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice

• Lime wedges

*Emeril’s seasoning


Combine Cajun seasoning, sugar and salt in a small bowl. Rub over all surfaces of fillets. Saute fillets in oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes. Turn and saute an additional 2-3 minutes. Do not overcook! Blend marmalade and lime juice; swirl in skillet until melted. Carefully turn fish to glaze on all sides. Serve with lime wedges.

Not only is this recipe fast, but also low in calories. Only 315 calories per fillet … bon appetit!
