Miranda's Orange Salmon

This dish is fast, easy, and delicious. Cooking the salmon in orange juice gives it a light flavor, and helps it retain its moisture while baking. This dish is especially great in the spring and summer, so long as you don't mind turning on your oven!

2 small fillets or one large fillet of fresh salmon
2 small shallots, diced
1 orange
1 cup orange juice (fresh is best, but any will work!)
1 tbl butter at room temperature

1. Preheat oven to 180 C (350 Farenheit).
2. In a small bowl, whisk butter and orange juice together.
3. Slice orange into a few thin slices.
4. Place salmon in a baking dish.
5. Place orange slices over the fish.
6. Squeeze any remaining orange over the salmon.
7. Sprinkle with shallots and pour butter and orange juice mixture.
8. Bake for about 20 minutes and enjoy with a fresh salad, roasted asparagus, or spinach.
