Orange Marmalade Glazed Salmon | Quick, Simple, and oh so flavorful, plus a quick Black Bean & Corn Salsa

Make something unexpected and brilliantly colorful this weekend.  Want an added bonus? It’s healthy.  Not enough? Well it is also easy and tastes amazing.  I love fish.  It is a working gal’s best-friend.  Not only does it balance out the 150 parties we seem to have around the office. Meaning donuts one day, and a birthday cake or two every week; but, it is also quick to prepare after a long days work.

This is also a beautiful way to utilize the amazing, flavor-packed goodness of jam in a savory form.  You could substitute other jams of course! The orange plays well with the soy sauce and garlic in this recipe, but as always – be daring, experimental, and adventurous! That is how we learn and grow in the kitchen. Plus that is how new and amazing recipes are born.

I served mine with Black Bean & Corn Salas (recipe below) and couscous.  It was a great balance to the caramelized sweetness of the salmon.

Orange Marmalade Glazed Salmon

  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 (1 1/2 pound) salmon fillet, or 4 salmon steaks
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to broil.  Line a broiler pan with foil; set aside.

Place the salmon on your prepared sheet/pan; pat dry with a paper towel and sprinkle with salt.

Spread the marmalade mixture over the fish; making sure top and sides are well coated.  Place under the broiler for 6 to 8 minutes; fish should be done, slightly brown on top, and flake easily with a fork.
