If someone told me that I could only have one thing to eat for the rest of my life, I’d pray that it could be fish. Especially wild-caught salmon. It is one of my all-time favorites and I’ve shared so many salmon recipes previously – from my parmesan herb salmon to my favorite grilled salmon recipe and just about everything in between. 

Orange Salmon Recipe

But, recently while in Florida, I decided to use some fresh oranges in a marinade for my salmon. Oh my word, this Orange Salmon is simply scrumptious! I just whisked together my orange juice with honey, soy sauce, olive oil, garlic, and a little ground ginger. The smell of the marinade alone is reason enough to make this dish! It smells incredible!

Once I had my orange marinade whipped together, I then placed my salmon in a sealable bag, poured in the marinade, sealed it up and let it marinate for up to an hour before we grilled it, let it rest and then devoured every last morsel of it!

It was fabulous!

I’m now making sure that I have plenty of fresh oranges on hand for this weekly obsession!

Here’s my Orange Salmon Recipe. I hope you love it as much as I do!

    Really good! I doubled the marinade and used half on sautéed veges. I grated the garlic and fresh ginger, marinated an hour on the counter. Definitely a keeper!
