Citrus Garlic & Herb Salmon with Cara Cara Oranges and Lemon

Serves: 4-6

Prep: 10 minutes Cook: 35 minutes

Citrus Garlic & Herb Salmon with Cara Cara Oranges and Lemon

We love how citrus offers bright flavors and colors in the cold and sometimes dark winter months. In this recipe, pink fleshed and extra sweet and Cara Cara oranges pair with lots of fresh herbs, spices, and garlic to make you feel like you’re on that Mediterranean vacation you’ve been dreaming of, in the dead of winter.  Slow roasting the salmon in olive oil helps to maximize the tenderness of salmon’s already tender flesh and almost guarantees it won’t be dried out. It’s a beautiful dish to serve for guests but its easy assembly makes it great for a weeknight too.

In addition to a yummy meal, you’ll get the immune boosting benefits of vitamin D rich salmon, a nutrient most people don’t get enough of during the winter months. Plus, citrus adds additional vitamin C to help keep your immune system up to snuff during cold & flu season.
