Reviews for Orange-Pecan Salmon
"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 *JanieTaste of Home Volunteer Field Editor"
"This was so easy and delicious. The salmon tasted just as wonderful as other recipes with more ingredients. It was a huge hit and I will make it often! THANK YOU!!"
"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."
"My husband and I really like this recipe. It's tangy and savory...and the crunch from the pecans is a great touch."
