Until the hundred and eleventh time… then it all starts to feel a little dull.  And you really need to switch things up.  Orange Glazed Salmon anyone?

Orange Glazed Salmon is delicious with pea pods

A couple years back, I joined a Community Supported Fishery (CSF).  I’ve been enjoying lots of sustainably harvested seafood ever since and I finally DID hit the wall on simple broiled salmon.  

But ultimately the inspiration for this recipe came from somewhere else–marmalade, in fact.  What to do with a half dozen jars of orange cranberry marmalade made for the Food in Jars preserving challenge? (Though eating it all up with a spoon did cross my mind…).  When you want something fancier than plain broiled salmon--but it needs to be just as easy, 4 ingredient Orange Glazed Salmon is perfect!

I decided on Orange Glazed Salmon on an especially lazy evening.  Lazy, as in, I’ve just done a mountain of homework, please help me find a simple dinner and spend a half hour in peace.  Before I start on the rest.  

The first attempt came out slightly scorched, but after I switched from broil to bake, all was good.  I’ve even added in pea pods when I’ve had them which almost makes a meal.  Easy peasy (whew!)
