Chipotle Orange Glazed Salmon

This recipe is from the post: Spicy and Sweet: Chipotle Orange Glazed Salmon

(serves 2)
You can grill the salmon and top it with the glaze if you prefer!

2 – 6 to 8 oz. boned salmon fillets, skin on
1 small finely chopped shallot
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
Juice of 1 orange (about a generous 1/8 cup)
1 teaspoon finely chopped canned chipotle pepper
1 oz. dry white wine
2 teaspoons honey

In a small pan heat the olive oil over medium heat and add the shallots. Cook until the shallots are transparent, about 3-4 minutes. Add the orange juice, chipotles, white wine and honey, bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Continue simmering, stirring frequently, until the mixture begins to thicken slightly and has reduced by about 1/4-1/3 and is of a light glaze consistency. Remove from the heat.

Place the two salmon fillets in a lightly oiled baking dish skin side down. Spoon the glaze over each piece of salmon, reserving about 1/3 of the glaze for finishing. Place the salmon in a 350 degree F oven and cook until just opaque and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. Spoon the rest of the glaze over the two pieces of salmon and serve with your favorite sides.
