When your humble recipe description writer was just a wee humble recipe description writer, mandarin oranges in a cup were such a treat. Sweet, juicy, yummy, and yet healthy enough Mom could make it part of a balanced lunch. But Mom never cooked up this; sweet mandarin orange mixed with peach and the slight pucker of balsamic, forming the perfect sauce for this subtle salmon. Simple treats from childhood begat complex flavors for adult dinner.
