Cook's Notes

In a small bowl, combine orange juice, olive oil and 1 t. thyme. Place salmon in a large, resealable bag and pour orange juice mixture over salmon. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, paprika, salt and remaining ½ t. of thyme. Remove salmon from marinade; discard marinade. Rub salmon evenly with paprika mixture. Place salmon on a foil-lined baking pan. Bake at 400 F for 10 to 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

For relish, combine all ingredients in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve salmon with orange relish.
