Baked Orange Ginger Salmon

Baked Orange Ginger Salmon

Easy orange ginger glaze gives the baked salmon such a great burst of fresh flavors! The glaze can be made in advance, but this baked orange ginger salmon dinner can be put together in less than 30 minutes! Opt for skinless salmon filets for this recipe, as the skin will get soggy and unappetizing. Plus, skinless filets bake quicker!

Ingredients:

  • 4 skinless salmon filets (4-6oz each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. To make orange ginger glaze, combine orange juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger and garlic in a small saucepan.
  3. Bring it to a boil over medium high heat.
  4. And then reduce heat and simmer on medium heat until the mixture is reduced by two thirds, about 10 minutes.
  5. To bake salmon, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy cleaning.
  6. Drizzle olive oil over the baking sheet and place salmon filets. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Carefully spoon the glaze over salmon filets and bake for about 15 minutes, or until salmon cooked through.
  8. Serve with steamed rice and scallions.

  1. Thanks Shinee! It turned out really great. The sauce thickened even more in the oven and I spooned the extra than ran off onto the pan over the salmon before serving. Delicious. Where can I find the link to your video?

  2. I think the brown sugar was also supposed to go in the saucepan, but it wasn’t listed. I added it anyway. 
    Is the glaze supposed to be thick or really liquid? Mine is still quite “liquidy” after 10 mins of simmering. 

    • Hi, Christie. Oops, I apologize for the mistake, and thank you for bringing it to my attention. It’s now fixed. I’d say, the sauce is still runny enough to easily spread on fish, but thick enough to stay in place. If that makes sense. Here is my video for this recipe, where you can see the consistency of the sauce at around 26-second mark. Hope this helps.
