  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 1 cup slaw and 1 fillet)

Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha (hot chile sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon bottled ground fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 (16-ounce) package cabbage-and-carrot coleslaw

1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle salmon fillets evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add salmon to pan, skin side down; cook 4 minutes. Turn salmon over; cook 3 minutes.
