½ cup soy sauce
1 cup water
1 tsp cornstarch
2 Tbsp. honey or brown sugar

To make the citrus soy, combine soy sauce, water, cornstarch, honey or sugar, orange juice, and sesame seed oil in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer making sure to whisk continuously until the sauce is slightly reduced and thickens.  Turn off the heat and set it aside.

In a medium bowl, add salmon, 2 tablespoons of the citrus soy sauce, sesame seeds, and a light seasoning of salt and pepper.  Coat all sides of the fish.

Heat a non-stick skillet on medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.  Gently place fish skin side down and cook for about 2 minutes with the lid on.  Flip fish and cook for another 2 minutes and then transfer to a serving plate.

Using the same skillet, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, mushrooms, snow peas, and 1 tablespoon of the citrus soy sauce. Toss for about 2 minutes and then add to plate. Top it with some orange segments and enjoy!
