Orange-Maple Salmon Teriyaki

"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."

  1. 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.
  2. Delicious! Nothing more to add. :)
  3. 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.
  4. I'm always on the lookout for delicious, simple salmon recipes...and this definitely fits that description. The salmon was juicy, tender, and lightly flavoured. I stretched the marination time a bit, and the fillets I used were quite thick, so I increased oven time to 18 minutes.


<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am&nbsp;33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
