WINTER CITRUS BUTTER SALMON

INGREDIENTS
1 2 lb. salmon fillet
1 garlic clove minced
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 blood orange thinly sliced
Herb Butter:
3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs basil, oregano, sage, thyme, etc
Pinch of salt
Winter Citrus Salsa:
1 blood orange segmented and chopped
1 orange segmented and chopped
1 small shallot diced
1/2 jalapeno pepper seeded and diced
2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
Juice of 1 lime
Pinch of salt and pepper

DIRECTIONS
Preheat the broiler in your oven to high and set the oven rack about 6 inches below it.
Place the salmon on a baking sheet. In a bowl, stir together the brown sugar, salt, pepper, garlic and lemon zest. Add the olive oil to make a wet rub. Rub the mixture all over the salmon. Place the blood orange slices on top.
Broil the salmon for 6 to 8 minutes, or until just opaque and flakey with a fork. Drizzle with the herb butter and serve with the winter citrus salsa. I also like to eat this on a salad with feta or with a brown rice and quinoa blend!
Herb Butter
Stir together the melted butter, fresh herbs and salt.
Winter Citrus Salsa
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until combined. This will last for about a day in a sealed container in the fridge.
