Seared Salmon with Sugar Glazed Blood Orange

Seared Salmon with Sugar Glazed Blood Oranges
Serves 2

1 lb Salmon-cut into 2 pieces, skinned removed
1 tsp Sugar
1/4 tsp Paprika
1/4 tsp Chili Powder
1 Blood Orange-thick slices

Salt, Pepper and Olive oil or cooking spray as needed

Preheat oven to 375. In small bowl mix sugar, paprika and chili powder and sprinkle on the orange slices. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Heat saute pan with cooking spray or olive oil on medium to high heat. Sear salmon on one side until nice crust forms, approximately 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat, turn salmon seared side up and place sugared oranges on top. Place in preheated oven for 8-12 minutes, until salmon is cooked to desired doneness and sugar has caramelized on oranges. You may turn the boiler on for a few minutes to really get a nice caramlized top. Enjoy!
