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!
