Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 1 navel orange
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 teasp rice wine vinegar
  • 4 6 ounce salmon fillets
  • 1 bunch watercress washed, dried and trimmed
  • salt and pepper
Servings: people

Instructions
  1. Stir the sugar, water and honey in a small saucepan over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil and simmer, without stirring, until the mixture is a light caramel color. Watch it carefully and don't let it burn. The caramel will go from not quite done to burnt very quickly if you’re not paying close attention.
  2. Immediately remove the pan from the heat, let the bubbles subside and carefully stir in 1 teasp orange zest and 4 tbps fresh squeezed orange juice. (You’ll want to stand back a little as the mixture may splatter.) Return the pan to low heat for a minute or so, stirring constantly until any caramel bits that may have formed completely dissolve. Add the oil and vinegar and gently simmer, stirring almost constantly, for 1 minute.
  3. Meanwhile, season the salmon with salt and pepper and place it in a bamboo or metal steamer set over a large pan of simmering water. Cover and steam for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked and firm on the outside but still pink and translucent on the inside. Place the salmon on the watercress and drizzle with the burnt orange glaze.
Recipe Notes

Add some ginger and minced garlic to the glaze for extra flavor. Substitute the orange juice with lemon or grapefruit.
