Blood Orange Salmon with Sage

I really love cooking fresh fish, and salmon is a fish our whole family can agree on. The flavors from the orange and sage pair perfectly with the mild fish. It is so refreshing and delicious! And my FAVORITE part is that it seriously does not get any easier than this dish. If you can slice an orange, then you can make this recipe. We enjoy this salmon with sauteed asparagus and whipped potatoes, but it would also pair nicely with a fresh salad and rice!
