Let’s Make It!


Preheat your oven to 350°F. Pat your salmon dry, and season both sides of the fish with salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a medium sized bowl, prepare your glaze. Add fresh squeeze orange, lemon and lime juice. Add in your olive oil and SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Sweet Drops™ to taste. We used the Valencia Orange Flavor to complement the citrus flavor. We found about 1 tsp to be perfect, but adjust according to your tastes. You may want to start out with a little less, then add more to taste.

Now, simply add in the rest of the ingredients (shallots, parsley, salt & pepper) and then whisk together. Give it another taste and then adjust seasonings to your preference.

Place the salmon on some tin foil that will be big enough to wrap the entire fish tightly. Drizzle the salmon with the glaze and layer with thin slices of citrus (optional, but recommended!).

Wrap the foil tightly before putting the salmon in the oven. The glaze will poach the fish really nicely, and will make for a great dressing for serving the salmon later. The salmon needs to cook until the internal temperature reaches 145°F, so, about 25-30 minutes at 350°F.

Now, serve the salmon with any side you’d like. We think a fresh, simple salad with greens, avocado and onion is great. We drizzle excess glaze on the salmon and side salad like a dressing. Garnish with fresh parsley (optional, but pretty!) and dig in.
