Not only is salmon family friendly, it cooks quickly so there is time for a short marinade to infuse it with even more flavor while getting the rest of the meal together. In this recipe, maple syrup, soy sauce and orange juice add fresh sweet-salty flavors that lightly caramelize on the fish while it roasts. Recipe developed by Food Network Kitchen.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Mix the soy sauce, maple syrup, orange juice, 2 garlic cloves and 2 tablespoons water in a large bowl; add the salmon and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, put the cauliflower and broth in a microwave-safe bowl; cover loosely with plastic wrap and microwave until tender, 6 minutes.
Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Drain the fish, season with salt and pepper and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until slightly golden around the edges, 8 to 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the olive oil and remaining garlic clove in a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook, breaking up the garlic with a spoon, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the cauliflower and broth, the cranberries, pistachios, orange zest, parsley, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste and stir to heat through. Serve with the fish.
