Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Whisk together orange juice, soy sauce, and hot sauce. Use a container just big enough for the salmon to cover the bottom so the marinade will stay on the fish.
  2. Place the salmon filets in the marinade, and swirl to coat thoroughly. Marinate at least 2 or up to 24 hours.
  3. Spray a skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Let the skillet get very hot. Arrange orange slices over the flesh side of the fish, and put the salmon orange-side down into the hot pan. Cook 5-7 minutes.
  4. Carefully slide a spatula under the oranges and fish together, and flip them. It’s OK if your orange slices fall off in this process. Just put them back where they were when you get the fish flipped. (Be careful! They are hot!) Cook another 5-7 minutes or until salmon is cooked to your desired level of doneness.
