Salmon tastes wonderful straight off the grill with a little bit of lemon, but take a few minutes to prepare an elegant citrus drizzle; its clean flavors quickly elevate the fish. Serve alongside grilled baby bok choy and steamed rice for a complete meal. Want the recipe? It's after the jump.

Ingredients

  1. For salmon:
  2. 4 skinless salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  3. 1 teaspoon olive oil
  4. 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  5. Coarse salt and ground pepper
  6. For citrus sauce:
  7. 1/2 cup fresh orange juice

  9. 2 teaspoons sugar
  10. 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  11. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  12. Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions

  1. Make citrus sauce: In a small skillet over high heat, boil 1/2 cup fresh orange juice and 1/4 cup fresh lime juice until reduced to 1/2 cup, 8 to 12 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat; whisk in 2 teaspoons sugar, 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Season with coarse salt and ground pepper. Set aside citrus sauce (makes about 3/4 cup).
  3. Prepare salmon: Heat grill to medium-high. Rub 4 skinless salmon fillets (6 ounces each) with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander; season with coarse salt and ground pepper.
  4. Lightly oil grates; place salmon, skinned side up, on grill. Cover grill; cook 5 minutes. Turn fillets; cover, and cook until opaque throughout and flaky, about 4 minutes more. Serve salmon drizzled with citrus sauce.

Serves 4.
