Orange-glazed Salmon

This is another recipe from Cuisine at Home. It has a nice mix of sweet and spicy. The salmon fillets are rubbed with cajun spices, but the glaze is made with orange marmalade.

1 and 1/2 Tbsp Cajun or Creole Seasoning (can be found at the grocery store)
1/2 tsp brown sugar
1/8 tsp Kosher salt
2 salmon fillets (6 ounces each), skins and bones removed (most stores sell the salmon already de-boned, but ask the seafood counter to remove the skin for you)
1/8 cup orange marmalade
1/2 Tbsp lime juice
1 Tbsp vegetable oil

In a small bowl, combine cajun spice, sugar and salt. Rub all over the salmon fillets. Heat the oil in a nonstick pan over medium-high heat, saute the fillets for 3 minutes. Turn and saute for another 3 minutes.

While the salmon is cooking, blend the orange marmalade and lime juice together. Add to the pan, swirl until the mixture melts. Carefully turn the fish to glaze on all sides. Fish is done when it begins to flake when tested with a fork.

Remove from the pan, garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy! Serves two.
