Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.

This baked salmon is definitely a favorite to prepare and share, because you can adjust it to suit anyone by dialing up or down the mustard and honey. —Kari Caven, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho


  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 salmon fillets (5 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a small bowl, whisk the first seven ingredients until blended.
