salmonIngredients:
1 to 1 1/2 pounds salmon filet with skin on (sockeye salmon is great if still in season)
1/4 C SOOC Blood Orange Olive Oil
1/4 C SOOC Tangerine Balsamic Vinegar
4 garlic cloves (minced)
2 Tablespoons fresh herbs chopped (chives, cilantro and parsley or whatever your herb garden is plentiful of)
Dash red pepper flakes (depending on the level of spice you want)
Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions:
Marinate your salmon filet with the Blood orange olive oil and the tangerine balsamic for up to two hour or if time doesn’t allow then baste your filet before grilling…..marinating adds more flavor. Sprinkle filet with mixture of remaining ingredients.
Preheat your grill to approximately 400 to 450 degrees or on high.
Place salmon steaks skin side down on grill for 3-5 minutes or until skin gets dark and crispy. Then place the filet on a piece of aluminum foil for remainder of cooking time for 6-8 minutes (depending on thickness of the filet). Press on the thickest part of the filet with a fork and it should still feel somewhat soft and squishy with creamy fluids releasing. Do not overcook the filet…..salmon is a fatty fish and will still be very moist but fully cooked.
I always drizzle a little more tangerine balsamic over the filet on the plate as we’ll for added flavor. Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 to 2 small – to medium sized fennel bulbs, sliced

1 good-sized yellow onion, sliced

4 tablespoons  SOOC Blood Orange Olive Oil

1/2 cup orange juice

3/4 cup SOOC Tangerine balsamic vinegar

1 1/4 – 1 1/2 pounds arctic char fillets, cut into 4 to 6 pieces, depending on your appetite.

Citrus-pepper seasoning, or seasoning of your choice for fish or salt and pepper.

Directions

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Trim and cut fish. Sprinkle flesh side with seasoning or a little salt and pepper, set aside. Add the olive oil to a saute pan. Once hot add onions and fennel to pan and sauté over medium-high heat until light brown. Remove vegetables from pan and set aside. In the same pan, add the juice and vinegar, bring to light simmer and cook liquids down, reducing by at least one-half. Set aside and save some for garnish.

Heat another saute pan with two tablespoons of oil on medium-high heat. Once hot add the fish skin side down, and cook for 4 minutes. Flip fish in pan to flesh side down, and place pan in your preheated oven to cook for another 4 to 6 minutes to finish cooking.

While fish is finishing in the oven, add the vegetables back to the first saute pan with the orange juice-vinegar reduction, toss with remaining syrup to coat till vegetables are hot. When fish is done, plate some of the vegetables and slide a piece of fish on top, drizzle plate and, or fillet with the reserved syrup and serve.
