Sweet Orange Glazed Salmon

Fish Tuesdays. This is my new goal. I want to have our family eat fish once a is going to be quite the challenge. The challenge is not cooking the fish, that is super easy. The challenge is making it different enough each week to keep my hubby interested. Right now we have only ventured out to salmon, tilapia, and halibut. I would love to try others, but for now this is all that is on our  menu. This recipe will be making an appearance quite often! It was perfectly sweet and surprisingly flavorful from the spices. It was great, I can’t wait to make it again...and most of important, neither can Hubbs!

3 Tbs. cajun seasoning
1 tsp. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
2 boneless, skinless, salmon filets
2 Tbs. EVOO
1/4 cup orange marmalade
1 Tbs. lime juice

Combine cajun seasoning, brown sugar, and salt. Rub the mixture over both sides of the filets.
Saute filets in EVOO over medium high heat for 3-4 minutes, flip filets over and saute for 3-4 more minutes.
Blend marmalade and lime juice. When fish is cooked through, swirl marmamlade mixture in the skillet until melted, and turn fish to glaze on on all sides. Be careful not to add this before the fish is done or the mixture will crystalize...still delicious but hard to eat!
