Glazed Salmon with Mint and Cucumber Slaw

Pleasant salmon dish that is easy to prepare Hands on time: 15 minutes total time: 30 minutes

for Main course
4 servings


2/3 cup fresh orange juice
6 tbsp light brown sugar
2 tsps mustard powder
1/4 cup plus 2 tsps rice vinegar
1/2 tsp kosher salt
3/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
4 salmon fillets (about 6 oz each), skin removed
1/2 small cucumber, cut into matchstick-size strips
8 leaves Bibb lettuce, thinly sliced
8 sprigs fresh mint, torn if large
1 orange, peeled and segmented
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil


In a small saucepan, overmedium-high heat, whisk together the orange juice, sugar, mustard, 1/4 cup of the vinegar, and the 1/4 tsp of the salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, uncovered, until slightly thickened, about 8 minutes. Season with 1/4 tsp pepper. Heat broiler. Arrange the salmon on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Brush the salmon generously with the glaze. Broil until the salmon flakes easily when pricked with a fork and the inside is the same color thoughout, about 5 minutes, basting once with the remaining glaze. Place the cucumber, lettuce, mint, and orange in a large bowl. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tsps vinegar, the oil, and the remaining salt and pepper and toss. Serve the slaw alongside the salmon.


Use the tender inner leaves from the Bibb lettuce, not the tough outer leaves. They have a buttery taste and a nice texture
