I’ve made this recipe many times each time with a few minor changes.  I’ve marinated the salmon with honey and orange, with honey and lemon, with pomegranate molasses, with petimezi (grape molasses), with Asian flavours, etc.  Salmon is one of my favourite fishes and still have a lot of recipes I have not posted.

Although I thought I had posted this recipe with orange, honey and orange zest, which makes all the difference, I think it is worth having it on record as it was delicious.   I served it with pumpkin potato puree.

    I like salmon too and yours look quite enticing. We used to have fresh salmon fished off our coast but the fishery has collapsed, so no more local salmon for us :(

    Citrusy orange and an almond crust sounds great with salmon! The pumpkin potato puree looks great too.

    I really think that honey and citrus must be my favorite flavorings for fish. This is stunning! And I’ve been on an orange kick lately. A beautiful recipe, Ivy!

    Hi Ivy, I took a look at your Greek spice mixture. 6 Tbsp. of that would add a lot of good flavor. I like the way you arranged your plate with all the orange foods, the orange rind, the butternut squash potatoes, and the carrots. Pretty!
