We all know salmon is naturally rich with Omega 3 acids and that it is recommended in most of the diets, but can you make it a bit different? Usually you just cook the salmon steaks or salmon fillets and serve them with greens or other vegetables of your choice.

This recipe is a bit different and it is packed with flavor and beautiful aroma. Oranges bring this fatty fish to another level, and addition of mouthwatering risotto makes a winning combination.

Orange zest is also delicious, do not trow it away! Serve it alongside risotto and salmon steaks. Since there is honey in this Salmon with orange and aromatic risotto recipe, make sure you do not use sweet soy sauce.
