WHFoods Menu: Turmeric Glazed Salmon
A sprinkle of turmeric adds extra flavor, nutrition, and anti-inflammatory properties to this already nutrient-rich salmon dish. Salmon has earned its research reputation as a health-supportive food based largely on its unusual omega-3 fatty acid content. It's very common for 4 ounces of baked or broiled salmon to contain at least 2 grams of omega-3 fats— more than the average U.S. adult gets from all food over the course of several days!

Prep and Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4oz piece wild caught salmon fillet
  • 1/2 tsp fresh lime juice (optional)
  • 1 small clove garlic, chopped or pressed
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 tsp orange zest (use organic orange)
  • 1/4 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 TBS fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • pinch red chili flakes (optional)

Directions:

  1. Chop or press garlic and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. To Quick-Broil salmon, preheat broiler and place an all stainless steel skillet (be sure the handle is also stainless steel) or cast iron pan under the heat for about 10 minutes to get it very hot.
  3. Rub salmon with lime juice, garlic, turmeric, chili flakes (if using) and salt and pepper. (You can Quick Broil with the skin on; it just takes a minute or two longer. The skin will peel right off after cooking).
  4. Using a hot pad, pull pan away from heat and place salmon on hot pan, skin side down. Return to broiler. Keep in mind that it is cooking rapidly on both sides so it will be done very quickly, usually in 3-5 minutes depending on thickness. Test with a fork for doneness. It will flake easily when it is cooked. Salmon is best when it is still pink inside.
  5. While salmon is cooking, place orange juice, orange zest, and ground turmeric in a small sauce pan and simmer over medium heat, until reduced by half
  6. Remove from heat and stir in olive oil and cilantro. Top salmon with this mixture.
