This fish marinade is good on Shrimp, Halibut and Catfish too! Orange with Garlic and Smoked Paprika is a great combination for PORK or TURKEY TENDERLOIN as well. Yummmm. Lots of flavor and fast grilling.
  • Salmon fillets, salmon steaks or whole farm raised trout fillets, skin on
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice or the juice of two oranges
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 2 smashed and minced garlic cloves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  1. Place fish fillets skin side up in a baking dish or baking tray. Blend orange juice, olive oil, smoked paprika, garlic, salt and pepper in a small pot and pour half over the fish.
  2. Bring remaining marinade to a boil, lower heat and simmer 6 to 8 minutes, until a syrup forms.
  3. Allow fish to marinate for at least 20 minutes while grill preheats to 400 to 500 degrees.
  4. Place salmon on hot grill or grill pan skin side down and cook until almost cooked through, flip and cook a minute or two on flesh side to finish cooking. Spoon on a little of the thickened marinade and spread with the back of the spoon. Don't overcook your fish... salmon or trout should be a little soft and medium rare inside. MOIST is GOOD.
