Orange Salmon with Leeks and Mushrooms

This was one of my favorite salmon dishes ever. I actually missed the leftovers when I left for a business trip.

  • In a shallow container combine the orange juice, 3 tablespoons olive oil, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Add the salmon filets, turn to coat with the marinade, then cover the container and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 450°F. if you want to finish the fish in the oven (continuing on the stovetop is also an option).   Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the leeks and sauté for about 6 minutes, until slightly softened. Stir in the mushrooms and garlic, season with salt and pepper, and sauté until the mushrooms have released any liquid, and that liquid has evaporated, and the mushrooms have started to brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Turn the mushrooms into a bowl. Carefully wipe out the pan.
  • In the same skillet, heat the butter over high heat. Remove the fish from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Place the salmon skin side down in the pan and cook, without moving the salmon, for about 5 minutes until the bottom is crispy. Transfer the pan to the oven if preheated and roast for another 5 minutes, or until the salmon is done to your liking. Or flip the salmon in the pan and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Serve the salmon sprinkled with bacon and parley, if desired. Serve the warm mushroom leek mixture on the side.
