Cilantro Ginger Pesto:
Orange Glazed Salmon:
Rye Toast Points:
MethodOrange Glazed Salmon: Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place orange juice in a small skillet and simmer over low medium heat until the liquid is reduced to 1/4 C total volume, this should take approximately 30 minutes.
While the orange juice is reducing, trim the belly and back of filet so that you have a rectangular piece of salmon. Slice salmon into 8 x 1/2" thick slices. Turn each piece on the side so that largest flat side is up, each piece should be 4" long x 1" wide. Place sliced salmon onto a parchment lined tray and season with black pepper.
Roast in oven for 3 minutes then remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature.
Once both are fully cooled, brush on an even layer of orange glaze on top of the salmon and set aside for assembly below.

Place in oven for 4 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool fully.
