Um, nice to meet you, Chris Dabis. Anyway, this recipe is really good and really really easy. Cut the oranges carefully and neatly because they look really good served at the end if they aren'...

This has great potential for a delicious blend of flavors, but I agree it is a bit bland as is. I even squeezed several orange slices over the salmon before baking to try to increase the flavor...

salmon was bland, needed more nutmeg or something to bring out more of the flavor.

I made this last night for Valentine's Day! Thank you so much for a light, easy on the palette (my boyfriend doesn't like strong flavor) entree. Served with steamed string beans and soba noodles...

I used a Concord wine, yes very sweet, it paired really well with the blood orange and nutmeg. We loved it!!

Added more of pretty much everything and allowed the salmon to soak up the marinade over night. Still really bland.

I made it with sweet mandarin oranges but it didn't really make it have any flavor after cooking. Perhaps it should marinate for a while before cooking?
