    JanuaryBride's Note:

    So I thought I was following another recipe, doing it from memory (and obviously my memory failed me) and voila - a new recipe was created! Good mistake this time! SO wonderful. If you like to hide the fishy taste of salmon/steelhead then this recipe is definitely for you! If you prefer yours more natural tasting, I recommend decreasing the marinating time to only 2 hours. Prep time listed does not include marinating time.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice (blood orange works well too)
    • 1/4 cup soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 2 tablespoons maple-flavored syrup (I used light butter flavored pancake syrup)


    • 1/4 cup margarine (I used light margarine with no issues)
    • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    • 3 tablespoons maple-flavor syrup
    • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (may sub pecans)


    1. 1
      Place fish filet in a gallon resealable plastic bag.
    2. 2
      Wisk together the OJ, soy sauce, honey and syrup.
    3. 3
      Pour marinade over the fish, seal the bag, place it in a container (in case the bag has a small leak - you never know) and put it in the fridge to marinate.
    4. 4
      I like mine VERY marinated, so I let mine marinate for 6 hours. 4 hours is probably a great starting point for the first time you make this recipe and then go up or down from there in the future based upon your taste buds.
    5. 5
      Line a baking sheet with foil and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    6. 6
      NOTE: If you fish has skin, then do not grease the foil. If your fish has had the skin removed, you MUST grease your foil.
    7. 7
      Cut filet into 4-6 pieces (depending on the size of your filet), place fish on the baking sheet with the smaller pieces (such as the tail part) in the middle - and putting skin side down on the foil. Discard the marinade.
    8. 8
      Cook fish at 350 degrees (uncovered) for approximately 20-30 minutes depending on how you prefer your fish cooked (20 minutes will be more medium while 30 minutes will be pretty well done).
    9. 9
      About 5 minutes before the fish is done, you can warm up the sauce ingredients in a sauce pan over medium heat just until the sugar is melted - then turn the heat to low.
    10. 10
      Remove the fish from the oven, then remove each filet from the foil with a spatula (leaving the skin stuck to the foil), plate up the fish and pour the sauce over the top.
