Another salmon recipe with a nice sweet glaze to liven up the mild taste of the fish. (edited May 2007 to reflect comments on cooking time - was originally 4 to 6 min per half inch)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degree F.
  2. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels.
  3. Measure the thickest portion of the fillet.
  4. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Place in a shallow baking pan; set aside.
  5. In a small bowl stir together marmalade, green onions, garlic, wine, ginger, mustard, cayenne pepper, and five-spice powder. Spoon mixture over salmon.
  6. Bake, uncovered, for 6 to 12 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness or until salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork. (have gotten varied responses on how long this takes, so definitely test it!)
  7. Transfer fish and glaze to a serving dish with a lip.
  8. Sprinkle with almonds.
  9. Serve with steamed asparagus, if desired.

I enjoyed my version of this salmon recipe very much. I omitted the 5 Spice Powder, cayenne, and wine. Instead of the wine, I added chicken broth and extra marmalade.

We eat salmon once a week and this version was delish. The glaze was very good - the sweetness of the marmalade neatly balanced with the mustard and spices. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. I'll be making this again.

DH and I really loved this dish. I did have to cook it twice as long (unless you like raw fish) thats the only reason for 4 stars and not 5. The thickest part of my fish was 1/2 inch and it was still raw after 6 minutes. I did not use the sliced almonds, I really don't care for nuts in most dishes. I also skipped the drying of the fish with paper towels. I find it takes away alot of the fish taste. It had a wonderful sweet and spicy taste. I will be making this dish again. Thanks MA HIKER for posting.
