The article deals with orthogonal polynomials on compact infinite subsets of the complex plane. Orthogonal polynomials are treated as coordinates of generalized eigenvector of a normal operator $A$. It is shown that there exists a recursion that gives the possibility to reconstruct these polynomials. This recursion arises from generalized eigenvalue problem and, actually, this means that every gene alized eigenvector of $A$ is also a generalized eigenvector of $A^*$ with the complex conjugated eigenvalue. If the subset is actually the unit circle, it is shown that the presented algorithm is a generalization of the well-known Szego recursion from OPUC theory.
