Thyme and blood orange marinated salmon

Salmon is the Madonna of Christmas.  A changeble fish that can be made in many ways. You can eat it raw, poached, fried, grilled, baked, hot smoked, cold smoked, marinated … Yes there is as many ways as Madonna’s image has changed during her career.

On my Christmas table, the marinated salmon has a pride of place. I rather marinate it myself and usually try various seasonings.

I often take what’s in my spice rack, as ”Kajsa Varg” probably would had said. This time I had fresh thyme at home and because I like the taste of orange, especially around Christmas, it had to be a dash of Italian blood orange juice in the marinade. It is of course, also good with juice from a fresh blood orange.

The result is a delightful, fresh marinated salmon with a slightly firmer texture.

A sweet strong mustard sauce as a condiment would increase the flavor.
Here you go!
