Sweet and Spicy Orange Salmon fish

Today I’m excited to percentage one of my recent preferred dinners – orange salmon fish. It’s a healthy dinner concept that is quick and easy.

  • Juice from one orange about 1/4 cup
  • Zest from one orange
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp sriracha more or less to taste
  • Salmon fillet s, between 1 1/2 – 2 lbs total


  • Whisk together orange juice, orange zest, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, and sriracha in a bowl.
  • Reserve about 1/4 cup of the sauce in a separate bowl for glazing later on.
  • Add remaining sauce to a shallow dish (or a plastic bag) and place the salmon in it to marinate for about 20 minutes, flipping the salmon over halfway through.
  • As the salmon is marinating, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. You’ll want a rack to be situated in the middle of the oven, as well as one near the top.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil and spray it with cooking spray.
  • Once the salmon has finished marinating, place the salmon on the prepared sheet, skin side down, and bake on the middle rack for about 18 minutes.
  • After 18 minutes, remove the sheet from the oven and brush the reserved 1/4 cup of sauce over the salmon fillets (see note).
  • Increase oven temperature to 425 degrees F and place sheet on the upper oven rack.
  • Broil for about 2 minutes, or until the edges of the salmon begin to crisp and brown.
  • Serve!


Sometimes I separate out the reserved 1/4 cup of sauce into two bowls – one for brushing on the salmon before it broils and one for drizzling over the finished dish. The salmon fillets I used were about 1 1/2″ thick. If you have thinner fillets, you can reduce the cooking time accordingly. Typically you’ll want to cook the fish for about 6 minutes per 1/2
