  8. Put the orange and onion slices on top of the salmon pieces and roast in the oven for about 8 minutes, until the salmon takes an opaque color in the center.
  9. While the salmon is being roasted, mix the orange juice, lemon juice, green onions and the rest of the dill in a ball.
  10. As soon as you remove the salmon from the oven, put it in a platter with the onion slices, but not the orange slices.
