Asian Citrus Salmon

Salmon filet (buy size according to how many you'll serve I usually get one big enough to feed 6) 
2 oranges 
2 tbs freshly grated ginger 
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce 
2 tbs extra virgin olive oil 
2 small pats of butter (optional...i'm leaving off now) 
salt and pepper 
2 tbs toasted sesame seeds 
2 tbs fresh cilantro 

Bake at 350 degrees for approx 20 mins 

Put foil on a cookie sheet and rinse the salmon filet, then lay the filet on the foil. Rub the fresh ginger into the flesh of the salmon. Pour Oil over salmon and then soy sauce. Squeeze 1 orange on the salmon and thinly slice the remaining orange to lay on the salmon at the end. Use salt and pepper to taste. Add the sesame seeds and cilantro and butter, if you are using, then spread the orange slices all over the fish. Lay another piece of foil on top of the salmon and then seal up the sides. Cook about 20 minutes or until the flesh flakes away lightly. 

Serve with sauteed cabbage with soy sauce and sesame seeds, salt and pepper and brown rice.
