Orange Salmon with Sauteed Spinach Recipe

I love orange marmalade and wanted a lighter version of orange salmon without heavy spice rubs or brown sugar. What a rewarding outcome this was. —Janet Caico, Hillsborough, North Carolina

"I think orange and salmon go together like peanut butter and jelly so this was a must try. It was delicious. My husband loved it. Definitely flavorful and would be a dish you are proud to serve to company."

"Excellent, my husband and I really liked it. I cut the recipe in half since there was only 2 of us, but I didn't cut the spinach in half. It cooks down so much the 6 oz. pkg, was perfect for 2."
