I first made this baked salmon for a girlfriends' luncheon, and it received rave reviews! It was especially nice that I could pop it in the oven just before they arrived and still serve lunch within minutes.—Pat Neaves, Lees Summit, Missouri

"Simple and delicious! I grilled the fish rather than baking it."

"This is a perfect companion for Salmon. 3 levels of taste. Orange, soy and pecan.

Depending on how well you like your Salmon done you may want to bake it for less time.
20 minutes plus was a little too long for us. I would suggest checking after 15 depending on the size of the piece of fish.
I did use less Pecans based on the size of our fish.
What a wonderful meal we had. Broccoli and rice completed our wonderful dinner *

"Delicious and easy! I served it to guests, and they thought it was terrific. I will make this dish again but next time will either cut back on the marmalade or will use a European marmalade that is not as sweet as Smucker's and store brands. The toasted pecans added a nice taste and crunch."
