I was out of honey but still wanted to make salmon teriyaki one night, so I improvised with maple syrup. The recipe turned out to be a success. The orange juice and maple syrup give the salmon just the right balance of sweetness, and the onion and garlic add to the flavor. Note: Preparation time includes marinating time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large sealable plastic bag, combine first five ingredients. Then add salmon. Seal the bag, gently squeeze and toss until marinade is evenly distributed over salmon filets.
  3. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes or 1 hour refrigerated.
  4. In a baking pan, empty contents of plastic bag and arrange salmon filets in one layer.
  5. Roast for 10-12 minutes or until salmon is tender and flakes easily when forked.

My side of Coho salmon took a bit longer to cook, but we loved this recipe. I shook the marinade in a jar and poured over salmon to reduce waste. Once the salmon was done, I poured the luscious cooked juices back into the jar and added 1 TBSP cornstarch; then heated in the microwave in that same jar for a Wonderful sauce. Looking forward to eating the leftovers.

Absolutely beautiful! Flavors were very complimentary with the salmon and the richness perfectly suited a simple salad making for a quick, healthy and delicious meal.
