1 filet of salmon

1 lemon

1 orange

1 stick of butter

Salt and pepper

Fresh thyme

5-7 cloves of garlic


Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.

Coat your pan with butter, nonstick spray, or aluminum foil to prevent salmon from sticking.

Prepare your butter mixture in a small bowl. Let butter sit out to room temperature to make mixture easy to stir. Chop fresh thyme into small pieces and mix in with butter.

Place your salmon in the pan and season with desired amount of salt and pepper.

Chop your lemon and orange into thin slices, then place over salmon. The more placed the stronger citrus flavor. Squeezing additional juice will add to the taste as well.

Next, place desired amount of garlic on top of and around sides of the salmon in the dish. Last, place butter dollops, and you’re ready to start cooking.

Cook salmon for 20 minutes at 300 degrees, then broil on high for 5 minutes to give a crisp and flaky texture.

Serve your filet and enjoy your unique citrus delight!

Candied Orange Peel in jar

Candied Citrus

Candied Orange Peel in jar

The Holidays are here! This means yummy winter citrus! Making candied peels out of your oranges, grapefruit and lemon peels is a wonderful way to make the most out of your fruit. Candied peels are a great garnish to add to ice cream or cakes to make them a little more festive. You can also chop them and mix them in with your favorite bread dough or muffin batter. Dip them in some chocolate and and you’ve got yourself an easy gift!


Your choice of citrus –

2 grapefruits

3 oranges

4 lemons

4 cups of water

4 cups of sugar, plus more for rolling


Make several cuts from the top to the bottom of the citrus, deep enough to penetrate the peel without cutting into the fruit.

Carefully remove the peel from the fruit. Cut the peels lengthwise into about ¼ inch wide strips. Remove extra fruit from each strip.

Place peels in large pot and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and then drain. Repeat this process twice.

In a separate pan, combine 4 cups of sugar and 4 cups of water and bring to a boil. Stir occasionally until sugar dissolves.

Using a pastry brush wet the sides of the pan to stop sugar crystals from forming.

Add peels to the mixture and simmer over medium-low heat until peels are translucent. About an hour.

Remove from heat. Once peels have cooled remove from syrup and place on a wire rack. Use paper towels to blot off extra syrup and roll strips in sugar. Arrange in a single layer and let dry for 30 minutes.
