Chop oranges, drain off any liquid after chopping and stir into bowl along with cilantro and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Roast at 425 F for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees F; roast another 40 to 45 minutes or until internal temperature registers 150 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Remove from oven, cover loosely with aluminum foil and let rest 10 minutes. Cut into thin slices, sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper and serve warm or at room temperature topped with the orange sauce.
