Found this recipe a couple of years ago in Taste of Home Magazine. The salmon is always moist, and there's only five ingredients! I put the salmon on top of a spinach salad with goat cheese and avacado

Ingredients

  • 1 c
    orange marmalade
  • 1/2 c
    reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp
    salt
  • 1/4 tsp
    pepper
  • 1 c

How to Make Orange Pecan Salmon

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small bowl, combine the marmalade, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Pour 2/3 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Add the salmon; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for up to 30 minutes. Set aside remaining marinade.
  2. Drain and discard marinade from salmon. Place salmon in a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  3. In a small saucepan, bring reserved marinade to a boil; cook and stir until slightly thickened. Stir in pecans; serve with salmon. Yield: 4 servings.
