1 whole side of salmon or 8 Salmon Filets
8 oz. fresh Black Mission figs, stem removed and quartered
1/3 cup orange juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup honey
1/4 tsp orange zest
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper, to taste
2 scallions, thinly sliced, for garnish
fresh orange slices, for garnish
Prepare the fish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the salmon on a parchment-lined baking sheet and set aside.
Make the sauce
Place the figs, orange juice, soy sauce, honey, ginger and garlic in a saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until figs have softened and the mixture is thick, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Bake the fish
Pour the sauce over the salmon and bake for 20 minutes, or until salmon is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. (If using salmon filets, check after 10 minutes.)
Garnish with scallions and orange slices.
