I am always trying different ways to season and cook salmon, and this recipe is by far one of my favorite creations. It's neither too sweet nor too spicy--just right! I serve it over rice, drizzled with the sauce. Yummm!
- 4 salmon fillets, skin removed
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons orange juice
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ginger, dried ground
- In a small bowl, thoroughly wisk together honey, orange juice, soy sauce, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and ginger. It may take a few strokes to thoroughly combine the honey.
- Place salmon filets into a glass 9x13-inch baking dish. Pour mixture over the fish.
- Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes or in refrigerator for up 1 hour. Turn occasionally to ensure even marination.
- Preheat oven to 375 F (If marinating in refrigerator, please let baking dish come up to room temperature before placing in oven).
- When ready to place fish in oven, DO NOT drain marinade from baking dish.
- Roast in a 375 F oven for 12-15 minutes, basting with marinade every 5 minutes. Fish will be done when it flakes easily with fork.
This was good. Wasnt too pleased with the amount of garlic though. I thought it was too much. Other than that it was good . Will make again but will cut back the amount of garlic. Made for Recipe Swap #34..
It was ok? Not particularly fond of the marinade/sauce...my fish did not take on the flavor of marinade as I had hoped for and I marinaded it for about 4 hours. Thanks for sharing!
We enjoyed this tonight as our main meal. We enjoyed the slight hint of heat the cayenne gave the salmon without it being overpowering. I didn't have a problem with there not being enough of the sauce for marinating but I do think that if you were going to use the sauce to drizzle over rice or something you may want to make extra. I also took the advice of the previous reviewer and broiled it for the last couple minutes and that baked in the sauce well. Made for Aus/NZ tag.
