Orange-Pecan Salmon

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 *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.
