    I admit my husband and I like our proteins REALLY marinated, but I marinated the salmon for the full two hours, and it barely tasted of the marinade at all. I was disappointed because I couldn't find the Spice Islands Citrus & Herb Seasoning anywhere locally or online. So I found a recipe for it and bought all the separate ingredients to make it. I'm not an expert at marinating fish, but next time I'm going to try 3-4 hours. I think it's worth a next time. If the citric acid in the orange juice "cooks" the fish, I guess we just have orange flavored ceviche.
    i made it with just 3 ozs of salmon so i had to estimate the amount of each ingredient, but it turned out delicious! i am not a salmon eater but this was great.
    My entire family loved this dish, including my husband who doesn't really like salmon.
    even my picky sister who hates salmon likes this recipe! it takes away the fishy taste, and the orange totally compliments the salmon! great recipe!
    britt :)
    This dish was tasty and wonderful - as long as you're careful not to forget about the salmon, it will turn out exactly as it should! I used a nice lemon pepper for the "non-salt citrus herb" and it worked out wonderfully. I also took the tip from a fellow reviewer to use a foil tent after removing the salmon from the oven, which kept things nice and juicy. I'll definitely be cooking this one again and again!!
    Before I make this recipe, I would like to know if Sandra Lee
    used 1 teaspoon of minced ginger or minced garlic. I am asking a question before I try this recipe;therefore I can neither rate nor put a headline.
    I'm not one for salmon but I thought I'd try this recipe. The entire family loved it! It was easy and quick. We will use this recipe over and over I am sure!
    Thanks for a recipe that works great inside and on the grill. Try Apple Jelly is so much smoother and richer. I always use a hand held timer NEVER OVERCOOK SALMON reminber it continues to cook after you take it out of heat use it to your advantage. If you forget and over cook it use it in a salmon chowder but added at the very end in chunks so you don't break it up - two cans of Clam chowder soup and your done. Thanks
    My family thought the salmon was pretty good & actually give it about 3 1/2 stars.

    We did, however, grill ours since that's our favorite way to prepare salmon.

    We used a sweet marmalade, so our marinade was not bitter at all. Next time, we will a little less ginger since are not fond of ginger.

    This recipe is a keeper.
    I have made this 4 times and every time it comes out perfect. Everyone loves it even my young grandchildren who would never eat salmon or any type of fish before. This recipe is easy and delicious.
    I make salmon quite frequently using diff. recipes.
    I was concerned after reading previous review comments.
    However, it turned out moist and flavorful.
    I did not have dijon mustard, so I used honey mustard. It was delicious. I will keep this recipe.
    The quality of the marmalade and the thickness of the salmon will affect the taste and the cooking time.
    Sandra, keep up the wonderfull work you do and your table scapes.

    I found this FABULOUS! And I do NOT generally like salmon. This however was sweet, the sugars caramelized on the top. MMMM! The recipe was VERY easy to follow, I definitely recommend it.
    I really enjoyed this dish. The Orange was not over powering at all, but definitely added something wonderful
    Love the surprise of the orange
    I thought this was great. I can't imagine why the other reviewers thought it was not good. I used a sweet marmalade, and intead of using citrus seasoning, I used herbs de provence b/c it's what I had and I took a gamble. I gobbled this up. It was a combination of the butter flavor of the salmon, and the sweetness of the marmalade. YUM!
    Once was more than enough to get me to decide not to make this recipe again. It was very dry and had practically no taste. Sandra Lee has much better salmon recipes than this one. I suggest you look another one up.
    This is really quite good. I added some garlic (pre-chopped - in keeping with the semi homemade tone ;).

    This was flavorful, a hint of sweet and the fresh ginger added great flavor.

    Would I do anything different?

    I would marinate it longer. Probably a couple of hours.
    What an easy and great tasting recipe. I couldn't find salt-free herb seasoning, so I just sprinkled salt and ground pepper on each side of the salmon right before cooking. In the interest of time, I only marinated the salmon for about half an hour. Also, my broiler doesn't work so I cooked the salmon in a pan with olive oil. The flavor was nice and light, very tasty. I will make it a part of our regular dinner rotation. Try it with Ingrid Hoffman's quinoa salad which has orange juice and zest in it. Yum, yum!
    All of us hated it. Even me and I love salmon more than anyone. The ornage glaze tasted bitter and made the salmon burn. Try a different recipe.
    Very easy to prepare. The added bonus is that the kids loved it and wanted seconds!
    Followed the recipe to a "T" and ended up with salmon that were dry and overcooked (even a bit singed) and had very little taste, strangley enough. I would not recommend this particular recipe.
    We loved it. Was the best salmon we ever made. We grilled ours instead of broiling. This will be a weekly dinner menu item for us.
    This one might deserve a 2.5, but 3 isn't stretching it. This dish is certainly not as tasty as it sounds/looks. It was just o.k. It's not good enough to make the regular rotation. We weren't just wasn't super flavorful. It was quite edible and fine...we didn't have to make another dinner, but it's not spectacular.
    The fish came out very dry and overcooked and without much taste. We'll use a different recipe next time.
    this was the best salmon that I have ever had. So tasty and moist. Highly recommend!
    The glaze tasted horrible. Ruined an expensive piece of salmon.
    I don't make fish too often but this sounded so good! Ended up not liking the taste of it so much and also had a problem with the sticky glaze burning under the broiler.
    We didn't like the glaze, as it was bitter and too strong. We expected something "lighter" and more appetizing.
    This recipe is easy and fast and my family loved it. I did use finely chopped crystalized ginger and it turned out great.
    This came out fantastic. Highly recommended!
