Instructions

1.Turn oven to 450º. In a small sauce pan, add orange juice, tamari or soy sauce, and honey. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes, until orange glaze thickens enough that it can coat the back of a spoon.
2.Lay salmon fillets on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Brush each filet 3-4 times with the yummy orange glaze. If you don't have a brush, just drizzle the glaze with a spoon and then spread it across the top of each salmon. Bake for 7-9 minutes. If you want more glaze on it, brush it again one minute before it comes out of the oven.
3.In a medium bowl, mix together ingredients for corn salsa.
4.Remove salmon from oven, and top each with 1/3 cup corn salsa. Serve with extra salsa on the side. Enjoy!!

Sweet orange salmon is a delicious dinner topped with a yummy corn salsa that kids love…and with all the healthy fats of salmon!
