Ingredients

2/3
cup
fresh orange juice
6
tablespoons
light brown sugar
2
teaspoons
mustard powder
1/4
cup
plus 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
1/2
teaspoon
kosher salt
3/8
teaspoon
freshly ground black pepper
4
salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each), skin removed
1/2
small cucumber, cut into matchstick-size strips
8
leaves Bibb lettuce, thinly sliced
8
sprigs fresh mint, torn if large
1
orange, peeled and segmented
1
tablespoon
extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, over medium-high heat, whisk together the orange juice, sugar, mustard powder, ¼ cup of the vinegar, and ¼ teaspoon of the salt.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, uncovered, until slightly thickened, about 8 minutes. Season with ¼ teaspoon of the pepper.
  3. Heat broiler. Arrange the salmon on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Brush generously with the glaze.
  4. Broil until the salmon flakes easily when pricked with a fork and is the same color throughout, about 5 minutes, basting once with remaining glaze.
  5. Place the cucumber, lettuce, mint, and orange in a bowl. Drizzle with oil and the remaining vinegar, salt, and pepper and toss. Serve with the salmon.
