  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut off the top and bottom of the orange, then cut away the peel from the sides.
  3. Slice alongside the membrane of the orange to remove each segment until the orange is fully supremed.
  4. In a large bowl, mix the orange supremes, napa cabbage, red cabbage, carrots, green onions, oil, rice vinegar, 1 tablespoon of the sesame seeds, and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  5. Season the salmon fillets on both sides with salt, pepper, and the remaining 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds.
  6. Transfer the fillets to a greased rimmed baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 8-12 minutes, until the salmon has just started to form a golden crust.
  8. Plate the salmon and slaw on a plate with a few lemon wedges, if desired. Sprinkle over a pinch of sesame seeds and serve.
  9. Enjoy!
