crispy honey orange glazed salmon fillets area unit pan-fried within the most stunning honey-orange-garlic sauce, with a splash of soy for more flavour!

Where do I begin with these Honey Orange Glazed Salmon fillets? I believe I simply same it all! I don’t understand that was the simplest part: the juicy salmon with crisp and burn edges; or the flavour of this sauce. World Health Organization would’ve thought salmon and honey with orange may go along therefore improbably well?


How did this one come back regarding? one in all my readers wrote in and asked about work out juice for fruit juice during this Honey spread Salmon direction, and what flavours would work well. Directly my brain went into crisp over drive. No foil or baking. Simply smart quaint searing in an exceedingly cooking pan, with burn edges and a soft and juicy centre.

The salmon direction of our dreams. Forget honey orange chicken once salmon takes over! And as per usual, drizzle those fillets in those saucy pan juices.



  • 4 x 6-ounce salmon fillets (or 170 grams each), with or without skin
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic , crushed
  • 2 tablespoons butter (or use olive oil if you wish)
  • Juice from half an orange (about 1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice)
  • Kosher salt and ground pepper , to taste
  • Half an orange , sliced to serve


  1. Heat butter (or oil) in a pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Sear salmon skin-side up for 3-4 minutes. Flip and sear for 2 minutes. 
  2. Pour in the orange juice and allow to reduce to half the quantity (it takes about 1 minute to reduce down if your pan is hot enough). Add the garlic and cook until fragrant (30 seconds). Move the salmon to the sides of the pan and add in the honey and soy sauce, stirring well to combine all of the flavours together. 
  3. Bring to a simmer until reduced to a nice syrup (this takes about another 30 seconds to 1 minute), and move the salmon around in the sauce to evenly coat. Remove from heat once the salmon is cooked to your liking.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to your tastes. Drizzle with the sauce to serve. Best served over rice, noodles, steamed vegetables or with a salad.

Back after we lived in Berlin, you will recall, we have a tendency to had a lot of Persian friends. They we have a tendency tore all Christian refugees from Islamic Republic of Iran and Islamic State of Afghanistan that we met at our church there, that was packed to the brim each Sunday. 

Usually when church, there would be Brobdingnagian meal that a number of the Persians would build, and that we would squeeze through the door with the gang, mouths watering and fingers crossed that it'd be "the chicken with the red sauce". 


Basically it's chicken simmered in an exceedingly sauce of saffron and a novel mix of spices, cumulous on an enormous plate of saffron rice that is specked with little, tart dried "barberries" (which you'll get on Amazon). I really like serving "shirazi salad" on the facet (which is simply sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, fresh mint, and lemon juice) and, if he has time, Samuel invariably makes some bread to suck that last little bit of sauce from his plate.

The basamati rice is therefore aromatic and marvelous and also the saffron and barberries extremely build it superb. The meat is tender and on the point of fall off the bone. The sauce is made and flavourous. The shirazi dish is crisp and recent. This can be the proper meal. 


Chicken Ingredients:
  • A few tablespoons vegetable oil 
  • 6 pieces of bone in chicken (I use drumsticks or thighs)
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 3/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/8 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock (water will work too if you are using bone-in chicken)
  • 1/2 of the saffron water (see below)
  • salt and pepper to taste
Saffron Water:
  • 1/4 teaspoon of saffron (you can buy it here), ground with a pestle and mortar 
  • 1 ice cube
  • Sprinkle the saffron in a small dish over the ice cube and allow the ice cube to melt. Set aside.
Rice Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups basamati rice (dry)
  • Half of the reserved saffron water
  • 1/3 cup dried barberries (you can buy them here)
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
Shirazi Salad Ingredients:
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1/2 of a red onion
  • The juice of one lemon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped or 1 teaspoon dried
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Chicken Directions:
  1. Heat the oil over medium high in a large pot. Combine the spices and sprinkle a little on the chicken. Saute the chicken and onion in the oil until browned.  Add the garlic and continue cooking for about 30 seconds. Add the remaining spices, tomato paste, half of the saffron water (reserve half for the rice!) and chicken stock or water. Simmer until chicken becomes very tender and sauce thickens and reduces. If the chicken gets done before the sauce is thick and reduced, then remove the chicken from the pot and continue simmering until the sauce is done. 
Rice Directions:
  1. Cook the rice according to the package directions. 
  2. In a small pan, heat the butter over medium and add the barberries and sugar. Cook and stir for about 30 seconds. 
  3. Pour the rice into a serving bowl. In a separate bowl, combine 1/2 cup of the cooked rice with the barberries and reserved saffron water. Spread the saffron rice over the top of the rest of the rice. 
Shirazi Salad Directions:
  1. Dice the vegetables and toss with the mint and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper and chill until ready to serve.

Mongolian Beef may be a combination of juicy beef cut of meat, cooked peppers, onions, and inexperienced scallions all brought beside a sweet & savory Mongolian beef sauce. Serve it over steamed rice for a meal that your whole family can get pleasure from. United Nations agency wants takeout once you will build it yourself in half-hour or less?

If you asked ME what I prefer concerning this Mongolian beef instruction, Imight have a tough time deciding. 1 st of all, it’s Chinese food—I mean United Nations agency doesn’t like Chinese?


Secondly, the meat is super tender, then there’s the sauce that goes with this Mongolian beef instruction. It's sweet from the refined sugar, with hints of ginger and garlic, then rounded off with condiment. This Mongolian beef sauce is sort of a heat hug on a cold evening—it’s that good!

Flank steak is that the typical alternative of meat for stir-fried Asian-inspired recipes like this one. But, something from big apple New York strip, to even beef chuck is used with sensible results.


Mongolian Beef Ingredients:

  • 2 lb beef stew tips, flank steak, New York strip steak (extra fat trimmed), cut against the grain into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup neutral oil
  • 4 stalks green onion, green part only, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 3 bell peppers, cut into strips
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 large onion cut into 1/4 rings

Mongolian Beef Sauce Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp ginger powder (or double the amount if using fresh grated ginger)
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4-5 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1 tsp Sriracha sauce (add more or less for desired spiciness)

How to make Mongolian Beef:

  1. In a ziplock bag combine the 1/2 cup cornstarch and 2 lb of cut into strips, close it and shake for the beef strips to be fully and evenly coated in cornstarch.
  2. Preheat a large skillet over high heat, then add enough oil to coat the bottom of the skillet. Next, add 3 cut up bell peppers and quickly cook them for about 3-4 minutes, stirring often. As soon as the bell peppers are browned slightly, remove them to a separate bowl. Do not overcook them, they should still have a bit of a bite to them.
  3. Lastly, tilt the skillet to the side and remove the bell peppers to a separate bowl, leaving the oil behind.
  4. Add the onions to the skillet and sear for about 3-4 minutes, just trying to char up the sides. Add more oil if needed. Tilt the skillet and remove the onion to the bowl with peppers, leaving the oil behind.
  5. Next, add the rest of the oil and add the beef strips, shaking off the excess of cornstarch and cook in a single layer in batches for about 1 minute per side. Transfer the cooked beef to a separate bowl. Do not overcrowd the pan. Beef needs to be seared, not cooked in its own juices. Keep adding the oil as needed after cooking each batch.

Mongolian Beef Sauce:

  1. Drain off the remaining oil from the skillet leaving the stuck on beef bits. <br></br>
  2. Next add 1/2 cup of soy sauce, 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tsp of ginger powder and the 4 cloves of minced garlic to the pan and let it come to a boil, scraping off the bits off the bottom of the skillet.

Bring everything together:

  1. Add the beef back into the sauce and stir to coat it in the sauce. Allow to come to a boil, which should thicken the sauce. Next add the bell peppers, cooked onion, and the green onion stalks and stir to heat through.
