Orange Sesame Salmon


Orange Sesame Salmon is one of our favorite ways to enjoy this perfect fish. I briefly marinate the salmon in a mixture of fresh orange juice, a splash of sesame oil, and a few other flavorful ingredients. While the salmon roasts in the oven, I reduce the marinade, which then doubles as a sauce. I know it's delicious when my guys are still talking about it the next day. I promise if you give this one a try, you will love it too!


Ingredients for Orange Sesame Salmon:


4 6 ounce salmon fillets

1/3 cup fresh orange juice

1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce

1/4 cup dry white wine or dry vermouth

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger

1 teaspoon dried mustard

4 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon black pepper


I like to garnish the salmon with chopped parsley and sesame seeds.


Time-Saving Tips: If you don't have time feel free to use purchased orange juice for the marinade.


Let's see what we need.


We're ready to cook.



Combine the juice, sesame oil, soy sauce, wine, ginger, garlic, mustard, honey, and pepper.


Place the salmon in a large sealable baggie. Pour the marinade into the bag. Let the fish rest at room temperature for ten minutes, flesh side down. Turn the bag over and let it sit for another 5 minutes skin side down.


Remove the fish from the bag and place it on paper towels to let drain for a minute. Transfer the salmon to a parchment-lined sheet pan and bake in a preheated 450-degree oven for 8-10 minutes until the desired doneness.


While the fish cooks, pour the marinade into a pan and reduce until it thickens.






Once the fish is ready, transfer it to a platter, drizzle with sauce and sprinkle with the parsley and sesame seeds.








It's ready! Orange Sesame Salmon is incredibly delicious and easy. It comes together so quickly, and everyone loves it.


Enjoy!
