Orange Maple Salmon

Orange Maple Salmon

Makes 4 servings

1 pound salmon fillets
2 oranges

1 clove garlic

2 scallions

⅓ cup Baird Farm amber maple syrup

¼ cup soy sauce

1 teaspoon sriracha (optional)


Cut the salmon into four equal pieces and pat dry. Zest and juice one of the oranges and slice the other into rounds. Mince the garlic and chop the scallions.


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a baking dish, whisk together the orange juice, zest, garlic, maple syrup, soy sauce, and sriracha, if using. Put the salmon in the baking dish and brush with the marinade. Let sit for 15 minutes. 


Remove the salmon from the dish and drain the marinade into a small pan. Place the orange slices in the bottom of the baking dish and lay the salmon on top. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven or until cooked to your liking.


Meanwhile, put the small pot with the marinade over medium heat and simmer until reduced in half. When ready, serve the salmon topped with the glaze, orange slices, and scallions.
