This recipe combines the wonderful flavors of Mandarin oranges, which are now available, with the sweet-tart flavor of balsamic vinegar. The salmon is served over pasta. In this case we used tagliatelle surrounded by slices of Mandarin orange. We use only wild salmon.
When Mandarins are in season we buy them by the sack. They're delicious and, because we have so many, we create quite a few dishes using them. Go to our website
