Ingredients

2-3 lb
fresh salmon, filleted

MARINADE:

1/3 c
fat-free italian dressing
1/3 c
orange juice, unsweetened

SAUCE:

2 Tbsp
minced onion
1 Tbsp
yellow mustard
1/2 tsp
minced garlic
1/2 tsp
chili powder
1 1/2 Tbsp
olive oil
1/2 c
fat-free italian dressing
1 c
orange juice, unsweetened

Step-By-Step

1Combine the marinade ingredients in a shallow pan or zip-lock bag big enough to contain the amount of fish you are preparing. Place fish and coat well with marinade, allow to rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
2In a small saucepan reduce 1 cup of orange juice over low-medium heat until it thickens and becomes syrupy. It will reduce to about 1/4 cup.
3In the meantime, combine the remaining ingredients (except dressing) in a food processor and pulse until it becomes pasty.
4Add the paste to the syrup and stir until hot. Let mixture cool for 2-3 minutes then return it to the food processor and blend.
5Slowly drizzle in the Italian dressing until completely combined.
6Spray a baking dish with Pam and place fillets skin-side down. Drizzle the sauce evenly over the until well coated. Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes or until flaky.
7Broil 2-3 minutes to caramelize the sauce if desired.
