  • Place salmon in a shallow dish. Pour all but 3 tablespoons of the orange juice mixture on top. Reserve remaining mixture in the bowl. Let salmon marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  • Transfer salmon to a baking dish lined with aluminum foil; pat dry with paper towels. Discard marinade. Spoon 1 tablespoon of reserved orange juice mixture over salmon; season with salt and pepper. Drizzle olive oil on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, about 6 minutes. Spoon remaining 2 tablespoons orange juice mixture over salmon. Continue baking until flesh flakes easily with a fork, 6 to 9 minutes more. Serve with lemon wedges.

I was hoping for more of a "glaze". I think some honey drizzle right before the end would be wonderful. Otherwise it cooked perfectly and was very tasty. Read More

I made this recipe last night for our dinner. I followed the directions exactly except that I also added approximately one teaspoon of freshly grated orange zest to the marinade as well. Yes the marinade did add a nice orange-soy flavor to my salmon but both my husband and myself felt that it needed something more. In retrospect I find that I don't want to change the flavor of that wonderful fresh salmon with a marinade. I like the flavor as it is. Instead I'm going to try and create a sauce slightly thickened incorporating the orange soy honey and ginger to spoon over the fish after it's cooked and plated and just before serving. First I need to come up with one more ingredient to add more subtle texture to that sauce. Read More

The flavors in this dish were great! It didn't give me the "glaze" I was looking for but it was quick and simple to make. I didn't have to buy any special ingredients to make this at home. I followed recipe as directed. Good flavors! Read More

This was very good. I made it exactly as instructed and the marinade was SO TASTY! To create a little more glaze I brushed the salmon with a little extra honey in the last few minutes. I served it on garlic fried rice with a side of bok choy w/ oyster sauce and garlic. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Read More

Made it exactly like the recipe says. All we good until I added another dish into the oven with the salmon. So it says 6-9 minutes. That would be fine but my salmon was very thick and could have gone another 3-4 minutes. Other then the middle being a bit soft it was great. Try a little lemon zest towards the end and it pops great with the citrus. Read More
