Sizzling Orange Salmon


This tender, delicious salmon is a weeknight repeat in our home.

The flavors of sweet, salty and savory mingle to create a light and flavor-packed dish. Allowing the fish to marinate in the sauce and spices infuses it with flavor. Make sure to serve each portion with a drizzling of sauce.

Sizzling Orange Salmon


  • ½ Cup Low-Sodium Gluten-Free Tamari Soy Sauce (San-J)

  • Zest of Orange, approx.. 1 Tablespoon

  • 2-3 Medium Navel Oranges, Juiced (approx.. ½ Cup)

  • 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup

  • 2-3 Cloves Garlic, Minced

  • ½ teaspoon Sea Salt

  • ½ teaspoon Fresh Ground Black Pepper

  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Ginger, Grated (or sub 1/8 tsp Ground Ginger)

  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Red Chile Pepper (Optional to taste)

  • 1 Sweet Yellow Onion, Sliced

  • 1 Red Bell Pepper. Sliced

  • 4 Salmon Filets (approx. 6 oz. each)

  • Cooking spray or Olive Oil

  • 2 Cups Quinoa or Brown Rice, Cooked


  1. Combine first 9 ingredients in a small bowl. Stir well.

  2. Place each salmon filet, skin side up in a glass pan or lined pan. Pour soy mixture over each filet.

  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.

  4. Heat large sauté pan over medium heat. Coat lightly with oil. Add Salmon, sauce and sliced onions and pepper.
