Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Meanwhile, season salmon fillets with salt and pepper.

  • Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Place salmon fillets into the skillet and cook until golden, about 3 minutes on each side. Cover and reduce heat to medium and continue cooking until the salmon flakes easily with a fork, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Remove salmon from the skillet and set aside. Stir orange juice and soy sauce into the same skillet. Cook on high heat until slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the sesame oil. Spoon sauce over the salmon and serve with rice.

I'm a salmon lover & always looking for new sauces and this was very good. I made it as L. Britten wrote it. The sauce was perfect and didn't overwhelm the flavor of the salmon. I used basmati rice & it lended well to the great flavors. This is a keeper! Read More

The dish came out delicious however I had to add a few modifications. First I increase the oj to about half a cup since I had large fillets in addition I used perhaps 3 tablespoons of soy sauce. I also added some orange marmalade to give it extra sweetness. Aside from that my family enjoyed the salmon. Read More

Had some slices of Alaska salmon from Alaska and saw this recipe and gave it a try.Liked it very much but when making it the next time will not put any salt on it it gets enough salt from the soy sauce.Maybe put more orange juice in it.I also used the zest from the orange which gave it more orange flavor Read More

I added more juice to overcome the salt of the soy(low sodium!) It still wasn't good Read More

I followed the recipe exactly and found the soy sauce overpowered everything. I didn't taste the orange juice. I didn't taste the salmon. Just soy sauce. Read More

I used this idea and fiddled with it. I had some white soy that was really salty so used 2 T with about 3/4ish cup OJ. Swapped white rice for a whole grain blend. Made a nice light and refreshing meal. Read More

I added extra OJ and still wasn't a fan of this dish. There are better salmon dishes that feature OJ on this site. Read More
