Sweet 'N' Sour Orange Sauce for Glazed Salmon
1/4cupfresh orange juice
1/2tspfresh minced garlic
1/2tspfresh minced ginger
Pat the salmon dry and remove any pin bones that may remain. Use about 2 tsp of sesame oil to lightly coat the skin and tops of the salmon fillets and set them aside on a baking sheet.
In a small sauce pan over medium heat, add the 1/2 tsp sesame oil and sauté the garlic and ginger for about a minute until it is fragrant. Add the fresh orange juice, brown sugar, and soy sauce and whisk until dissolved.
Bring the mixture up to a boil and then lower the heat and allow it to simmer on medium low until the mixture begins to thicken slightly and reduces, about 5-6 minutes. Whisk in the cornstarch until it's completely dissolved and set the glaze aside in a small bowl to cool.
Preheat your grill to 450°F and set it for two zone cooking. Cook the salmon fillets skin side down over direct heat for 2-3 minutes then flip them and cook an additional 1-2 minutes. Once seared, move the salmon over to indirect heat (skin side down) and coat with the glaze.
Close the grill lid and allow the glaze to set for about a minute or so, then apply a second coat if desired. Remove from the heat and serve with sesame seeds and sliced green onion.
