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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 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.
  2. Place salmon filets into a glass 9x13-inch baking dish. Pour mixture over the fish.
  3. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes or in refrigerator for up 1 hour. Turn occasionally to ensure even marination.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 F (If marinating in refrigerator, please let baking dish come up to room temperature before placing in oven).
  5. When ready to place fish in oven, DO NOT drain marinade from baking dish.
  6. 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/ 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.
