Baked Salmon with Orange-Ginger Sauce

Fresh salmon fillets are baked on a bed of vegetables and topped with a fragrant ginger citrus sauce.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 1/2 inch piece fresh ginger root
1 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
2 tablespoons fat-free half-and-half
1/4 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 cups frozen stir fry vegetable blend
2 (4 ounce) salmon fillets

 

Cooking Directions:

1 – Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C).
2 – Make sauce. Peel ginger root and slice into 10 slices. Pour orange juice into a small saucepan. Add Splenda® Granulated Sweetener and ginger root. Bring to a rolling boil over medium high heat. Boil 10 to 12 minutes or until orange juice has reduced to approximately 2 tablespoons. Remove sauce from heat.
3 — Remove ginger slices using a fork and discard. Set sauce aside.
4 – Mix together the half-and-half, cornstarch and salt. Set aside. Whisk the softened butter, one Tbsp. at a time, into the 2 tablespoons of orange juice. Stir until melted. Add half and half mixture. Stir well. Place saucepan back on heat. Heat over medium- high heat until boiling.
5 – Remove sauce from heat and mix in a blender 15 to 20 seconds or until smooth and lighter in color. Set aside. Prepare salmon. Place vegetables in an 8×8 inch-baking pan. Place salmon fillets on top of the vegetables.
6 – Bake in preheated oven 10 to 15 minutes or until cooked through, but still tender.
7 – Place vegetables and salmon on serving plates. Pour sauce over salmon. Serve immediately. Serve with steamed rice, if desired.
Makes 2 servings.
