Orange-Glazed Salmon over Sauteed Spinach

"Pretty to look at, delicious to eat, salmon-infused with seasonal fresh orange and heart-healthy canola oil served over slightly wilted spinach-is easy to make any time of year."


  • Ready Time : 0 min


4 - 3/4 cup servings


  • 1 orange, washed, grated* and juiced
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil, divided
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 (12oz/350g) salmon fillet, cut in 4 pieces
  • 8 oz fresh spinach, trimmed
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp freshly-ground black pepper


1 Combine juice from orange, honey, brown sugar, 2 tsp (10 mL) canola oil and red pepper flakes.
2 Arrange salmon in a dish just big enough to hold the fillet; pour orange juice mixture over salmon. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, turning salmon once to distribute flavors. Discard marinade.
3 Grill salmon skin side up, over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes; turn and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes, until fish flakes easily.
4 Just before salmon is done, saute spinach in 1 tsp (5 mL) canola oil in a nonstick skillet just until wilted. Season with lemon juice and pepper.
5 Spoon spinach onto heated plates. Top with salmon. Sprinkle with grated orange peel.

*reserve grated orange rind for garnish.

    You do not list how much spinach to use.
    Your special instructions are not correct. You have an asterik next to the word “grated” but no reference to it.
