Citrus-Agave Glazed Salmon
About this Recipe
By: Caitlin Greene
I wanted to make a sweet sauce for my salmon using agave syrup since, typically, I would go for honey. I love the combination of citrus combined with agave – and immediately thought of my favorite tangerine and a lime margarita. In my fruit basket was winter Cara oranges, and after implementing them into the recipe, the outcome was magnificent! Clementines or sumo citrus could also be used. Furthermore, you could replace the lime with lemon. Honey is a suitable replacement for agave, but keep in mind it will change the flavor. Lastly, if you do not like salmon, shrimp or halibut could be used instead.
This dish goes very well with avocado! It is excellent over a salad or with a warm tortilla and guacamole.
