I don't like fish so I won't eat this, but I made it for Adam. It's pretty simple to make. Prep consists mostly of chopping the vegetables. Of course I managed to chop my hand twice in the process. Cooking's not cooking if Martha doesn't shed some blood... Anyway, it was easy to make and hopefully it will taste good too. Adam should comment tomorrow - he's taking it to work for lunch.

Just a note here: We couldn't find any regular oranges sold singly so we had to get a blood orange. That's why it's red and it looks like the fish is bleeding. Uck.

The salmon has a great flavor and heavenly texture. The accompanying vegetables are very flavorful. While the recipe calls for regular oranges, the use of a blood orange out of necessity adds extra flavor and is very appealing to the eyes.

LoL. Adam, you sound like a commentator on Iron Chef or something...
