Ingredients for Marinated Grilled Salmon Fillet


This easy marinade all comes together to give this salmon so much flavor with little effort!

salmon – Use fresh or frozen salmon fillets for this recipe. If frozen, thaw in refrigerator and cook according to recipe. If the fillets are flat and thin fillets, the cooking time will be less.

juice – Use good old OJ to add a zesty orange flavor to this glaze. If you don’t have orange juice, try pineapple or apple juice instead.

sweetness – The sugar helps the glaze to caramelize, and the brown sugar and honey sweeten things up.

flavor We are proud of our ginger and garlic. If you don’t have fresh ginger or garlic, you can use powders, but only use 1 teaspoon of each in the marinade. Don’t forget to add toasted sesame oil to enhance the flavor.

Choosing the Best Salmon Filet

  • Look for marble cuts that are thick and clean.
  • Press the thickest part of the meat and the salmon will bounce without denting.
  • Let’s smell it! Anything that smells too fishy is probably best avoided.

How to grill salmon fillets

This salmon was marinated and baked in the oven. I bake until almost ready, and finally bake for a minute or so.

Set aside some of the marinade for brushing at the end.

  1. Marinate the salmon for at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours using the recipe below.
  2. Bake salmon for about 10-12 minutes (this depends on thickness, check early to avoid overcooking salmon).
  3. Brush with more marinade and bake for 1-2 minutes.

Green onions are beautiful and fresh garnish! Try topping with a twist of orange peel too!

The salmon flakes easily with a fork, but is slightly translucent in the center. Once the fish is flaky, remove it from the heat immediately (overcooking can dry it out).

The great thing about this easy baked salmon recipe is that you can make something very elegant very quickly. It goes well with most vegetable side dishes and rice dishes. Below are some of our favourites.

Tips for grilling salmon to perfection

  • Line the baking tray with parchment paper or foil after each cleanup.
  • For extra flavor and moisture, brush the salmon with melted butter before seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • Add fresh herbs such as coriander and parsley to the garnish.
  • A squeeze of fresh lemon juice or a few lemon slices is perfect for serving.
  • Cook salmon to desired temperature using an instant-read thermometer. The USDA recommends 145°F, but many people find this a bit overkill and prefer temperatures closer to 125-130°F. Consuming raw or undercooked seafood can increase the risk of food poisoning.
