Sweet and Savory Orange Recipes

Article Image

Oranges inject a bright note of color and flavor to winter dishes, whether it’s a zippy citrus salsa over chicken cutlets or fish fillets, a sweet-tart glazed cake, or a knockout custard-and-fruit tart.

  • Recipe

    Sear-Roasted Halibut with Blood-Orange Salsa

    The sear-roasting method forms a gorgeous crust on the halibut while keeping the inside moist. The fish's mild flavor is the perfect vehicle for the blood orange salsa that's bursting with sweet, citrusy flavor. 
  • Recipe

    Orange-Almond Upside Down Cake

    Almond and orange is a classic flavor combination that never gets old. Here, ground almonds and orange zest are incorporated into the cake batter, while sliced almonds add a toasty crunch to the sliced orange topping.
  • Recipe

    Seared Scallops with Blood Orange Shallot Sauce

    Though worthy of company, this dish is made with just a few ingredients. Blood orange juice gives the sauce a lovely color, but you could substitute any kind of orange juice as long as it’s freshly squeezed. Serve the scallops over wilted greens or with some herbed couscous.

  • Recipe

    Orange and Brown Butter Tart

    The nutty brown butter in this tart's custard filling makes a rich counterpoint to the tangy oranges topping it. A mix of blood and navel oranges is gorgeous, but you can use any oranges that are available.

  • Recipe

    Fennel, Orange, and Olive Salad

    This popular Sicilian salad is made with blood oranges when they are in season, but navel oranges work just as well. I like to bring the salad to the table with the layers intact and toss it at the table.

    Pan-Roasted Chicken Breasts with Orange-Brandy Sauce

    A quick soak in an orange juice brine infuses the chicken with lots of flavor. You’ll need a total of about 9 medium oranges for this recipe.

  • Recipe

    Orange and Brown Sugar-Glazed Cake with Orange-Flecked Whipped Cream

    Surprisingly light and airy, the cake on its own would make a delightful snack or breakfast treat. Brush on the glaze and pile on the whipped cream, though, and you have an impressive dessert.

  • Recipe

    Fresh Oranges with Caramel and Ginger

    If you serve this pretty dessert soon after assembling it, you'll get bits of crunchy caramel with the orange slices. If you let it sit for a couple of hours, the caramel will dissolve and blend with the orange juices to make a toasty syrup. Both ways are very appealing.

  • Recipe

    Orange, Olive, and Onion Focaccia

    Sweet, tangy, and salty, this focaccia is hard to stop eating. Depending on the size of your oranges, you may not use all of them. And though it may look like a lot of onion, don’t worry: It shrinks and mellows when baked.

  • Recipe

    Breaded Chicken Cutlets with Orange Salsa

    Few can resist a crisp fried cutlet. Here, both the meat and the breading are infused with the delicate flavors of orange and thyme. The fruity, colorful salsa complements the rich crust. If you prefer, you can substitute veal or pork cutlets for the chicken.

  • Recipe

    Orange, Pear, and Date Salad

    Though the jewel-like tones of orange slices scream for attention, the charm of this refreshing salad is its balanced, simple, almost subdued flavors, which beguile with every bite.
