From the Test Kitchen

In this delicious, gourmet dish, you’ll make an incredible glaze for tender, flaky salmon. Orange and ginger are a powerfully flavorful combination, equal parts sweet and savory: the fresh, tart notes of citrus perfectly complement the peppery aromatic properties of ginger. We’re also adding light richness to the glaze with sweet soy sauce (a thicker, sweeter version of the original).
