Salmon is my version of fast food. It's already so wonderfully flavorful on its own that I don't have to put much effort into it. A brush of oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper, plus a few minutes in a hot oven or skillet and dinner is ready. In this recipe I whisk together marmalade, soy sauce and some freshly grated ginger, then I add a squeeze of fresh orange juice, pour it over the salmon, and then into the oven it goes. The result is sticky, sweet, tangy and oh so flavorful!
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet or baking pan with foil. Sprinkle the salmon generously with salt and pepper and place on the foil.
Whisk the marmalade, ginger, soy sauce, oil and orange juice together in a small bowl. Pour over the salmon. Drop the peel form the orange onto the baking sheet along with the salmon. Bake until the salmon is cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes. If you like, turn the oven to broil for the last 3 or so minutes of cooking to brown the top of the fillets.
Serve the salmon immediately or cool and refrigerate to use in salads or sandwiches.
I grate an inch off the full ginger root right into the bowl with the other glaze ingredients.
