1 orange, cut into 1/4-inch round slices
Juice of 1 orange
8 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup chopped basil leaves
Organic coarse ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F.

  • Set aside the orange slices. Whisk together the orange juice, garlic, balsamic vinegar, basil, salt and a sprinkling of black pepper in a large bowl.

  • Add the salmon, turn to coat, and let sit covered for 15 minutes. Remove the salmon from the marinade, shake off the extra, and place on to a baking dish. Bake for 6-8 minutes, until slightly pink in the middle. Serve accompanied by the orange slices.
