Salmon with Thyme and Orange

So on Sunday I found a great recipe for salmon with rosemary and lemon.  Unfortunately, the grocery store at 4 PM on Sunday was an absolute madhouse and they had run out of rosemary, ruining my dish.  I decided to improvise.  Next to where the rosemary should have been was a package of fresh thyme.  I grabbed that and decided to see what would happen.

Going into new territory using an orange instead of lemon to dress a fish

Top a 1 lb. piece of salmon with with some olive oil, 2 tbsp. of fresh thyme, 1 clove of minced garlic, the zest of an orange, salt, and a squeeze of that orange’s juice.  Bake in a 450 oven for 15-25 minutes, depending on how thick your fish is (mine took 23 minutes, fyi).

Serves 2-3.

Lemon is super expected when it comes to fish, but the orange is a very nice change of pace.  Though I had no idea how it would work, the orange and thyme actually paired together nicely.  I’ve served it two ways: on its own (alongside ravioli) and on top of a salad.  Neither version disappointed.
