While staying at home to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), one of the best ways to make each day feel different from the last is to experiment with new recipes. Luckily, Quad Webb has some incredible dinner inspiration. The Married to Medicine cast member shared her ideal quarantine meal with BravoTV.com, in an exclusive video you can watch above.
“We are right here in my kitchen, and I’m going to talk to you about the quarantine cuisine, honey,” she said. “What am I eating during this time that we have been on lockdown? Well, I can tell you, not a lot of fattening foods, because I don’t know how long this is going to go.”
To stay healthy at home, Quad suggests whipping up a delicious recipe from her cookbook, Cooking with Miss Quad: Live, Laugh, Love and Eat. “If you’re as busy as I am, you need this recipe: it’s easy and fast. The sweetness from the orange and the aromatic scent lightens up the salmon, and the ginger heightens the flavor,” the recipe reads. “This is a great dish for beginners as you don’t have to worry too much about overcooking the salmon, and the sauce is to die for.”
Orange-Ginger Glazed Salmon
- 1 pound skin-on salmon fillets
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Juice of 2 oranges
- 5 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 scallion, trimmed and chopped, for garnish
- Cooked basmati rice or whole-grain pasta, for serving
- Season the salmon on both sides with the salt and pepper. Set aside.
- Whisk together the orange juice, honey, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, and soy sauce in a small bowl. Set aside.
- Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Place the salmon in the center of the pan and cook on each side for three minutes until it releases easily from the pan.
- Lower the heat and coat the salmon with the sauce. Allow the sauce to marry with the salmon for two minutes.
- Transfer the salmon to a serving dish and garnish with the scallions. Serve with basmati rice or whole-grain pasta.
Although the recipe calls for the juice of oranges, Quad explained that it’s alright to use pre-squeezed orange juice. “Guess what? I took a shortcut,” she said. “Just gonna put a little bit of orange juice, here. And that is the glaze.”
During the video, she also added another step to the directions: to stop and take a sip of wine. “Gimme just a second, I’ve gotta take a break,” said Quad. “It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Wine!”
Instead of using basmati rice or whole-grain pasta, Quad opted for sticky rice this time around. When it came time to plate the meal, she drizzled some of the ginger orange glaze over the dish, then sprinkled the green scallion garnishes across the top. It looks delicious!
