Orange Broiled Salmon

Orange Broiled Salmon
from Everyday Food Magazine
serves 3-4

1 Navel Orange
1 Yellow Bell Pepper, Thinly Sliced
1/2 Red Onion, Cut Into Wedges
4 Skinless Salmon Fillets (4-6 Oz. Each)
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Heat broiler and move rack in oven so it is 8 inches away from the heat.  Grate one tablespoon orange zest then cut orange into wedges.  On a rimmed baking sheet, toss together orange zest and wedges, pepper, onion, and oil and arrange in an even layer.  Add salmon and season vegetables and salmon with salt and pepper.  Broil until vegetables are browned and salmon is opaque throughout, about 8-10 minutes. To serve squeeze orange over salmon and enjoy with a baked potato.

I loved this recipe.  I'm on a huge orange kick right now and this dish could not be any faster or simpler.  M, however, was a little weirded out by the broiled oranges so next time I make this I think I'll have to use lemon (or maybe a combo!)  The oranges and peels are edible with they come out of the oven, although I was not brave enough to try the peel.
