How to Make Orange Marinated Salmon Fillets


  1. Combine the marinade ingredients in a shallow pan or zip-lock bag big enough to contain the amount of fish you are preparing. Place fish and coat well with marinade, allow to rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  2. In a small saucepan reduce 1 cup of orange juice over low-medium heat until it thickens and becomes syrupy. It will reduce to about 1/4 cup.
  3. In the meantime, combine the remaining ingredients (except dressing) in a food processor and pulse until it becomes pasty.
  4. Add the paste to the syrup and stir until hot. Let mixture cool for 2-3 minutes then return it to the food processor and blend.
  5. Slowly drizzle in the Italian dressing until completely combined.
  6. Spray a baking dish with Pam and place fillets skin-side down. Drizzle the sauce evenly over the until well coated. Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes or until flaky.
  7. Broil 2-3 minutes to caramelize the sauce if desired.
