Serves 4 (serving size: 1 fillet and 1 lemon wedge)

Serve with Snap Pea and Radish Sauté and Quinoa with Toasted Pine Nuts. Or serve with Soba Noodle Salad and Wilted Spinach with Fresh Chile. There are a number of sustainable salmon options available; look for U.S.-caught and U.S.-farmed fish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Combine marmalade, soy sauce, salt, black pepper, and garlic in a small bowl. Arrange salmon fillets, skin sides down, on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Brush fish fillets evenly with half of marmalade mixture. Bake fish fillets at 450° for 4 minutes.

Step 3

Heat broiler to high (do not remove fish from oven); broil fish 6 minutes. Spoon remaining marmalade mixture onto center of fillets. Broil fish an additional 3 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Sprinkle fish evenly with green onions; serve with lemon wedges.

I made this for 2 of us with 12 ounces of salmon - really good and easy. Oven time too long: oven 2-3 minutes; broiler 3 + 1 minute. I served with the Soba noodle salad. Great dinner!!

Good salmon recipe; I make one minor change, adding red pepper flakes for a little heat/spice. Don't forget the chopped scallions; they do make a difference.

Easy and tasty, just needed a little kick

We really enjoyed this - per other reviewers I added about 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes to the marinade and warmed it in a saucepan to make it easier to pour over salmon. I used Dundee three fruit marmalade (orange, lemon and grapefruit) and doubled the marinade (except the salt). I didn't want the marinade to burn so I cooked at 425 degrees for about 12 minutes, took the fish out to use rest of marinade, then broiled for about 3 minutes to finish. Definitely will put into the rotation, and will probably add a bit more red pepper flakes or maybe some Thai chile garlic sauce.

We eat a lot of salmon and I was told this was the best recipe I'd made. Super easy. Did not add any salt. I broiled it on the Center rack
