Orange-Pecan Salmon Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Bake: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine marmalade, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Pour 2/3 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Add salmon; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for up to 30 minutes. Set aside remaining marinade.
  • 2. Preheat oven to 350°. Drain and discard marinade from salmon. Place salmon in a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, 20-25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

"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."
