I grow my own oranges, so I wanted to try a main dish recipe where the citrus flavor really comes through. It's definitely one of our favorite recipes.

"This recipe is tops. Every time we go to grilling for the family we request the salmon over the beef now days."

"This was just ok, but I think it could be much better. I only marinaded this for 2 hours. I think much longer (even overnight) would have enhanced the flavor. I used some of the reserved marinade mixed some greek yogurt for a light sauce that was delicious."
