Orange-Rosemary Glazed Salmon

I'm not a huge fish person, (I only like a few things) I've tried swordfish, oysters and other shellfish. I'm interested but also nervous at the same time because bad fish is just bad, never eat fish in a college cafeteria (my mistake)!!! But I do love salmon, grilled and with pesto mostly. This orange and rosemary glazed dish looks and sounds so delicious, I'll be trying this recipe this weekend :)

Ingredients: 

2 tsp olive oil
4 (6 oz) skinless salmon fillets (1 inch thick), rested at room temperature 10 minutes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 1/2 tsp minced fresh rosemary
5 tbsp chicken broth, divided
1 1/2 tsp orange zes
2/3 cup fresh orange juice
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsp honey
2 1/2 tsp cornstarch

Instruction:

Heat a large non stick saute pan over medium-high heat. Season both sides of salmon with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil then add salmon and cook until browned on both sides and cooked through, about three minutes per side. Transfer a plate, leaving oil in pan. 

Add garlic and rosemary to pan and saute for 20 seconds, then add 1/4 cup chicken brother and simmer until mostly reduced. Stir in orange zest, orange juice, lemon juice and honey. In a small bowl whisk together remaining one tbsp chicken broth with cornstarch. Pour into pan, season sauce with salt and pepper to taste then bring to a boil and allow to boil one minute, stirring constantly. Return salmon to pan, spoon sauce over salmon.
