Baked Salmon

Living in Oklahoma it’s hard to get your hands on fresh salmon. You try to convince yourself (and others) that the frozen salmon is just as good as the fresh, but it’s just not. The texture. The taste. The smell. No matter how much you doctor it up it’s just not the same.

I ran to the store yesterday to score some 75% off Valentine’s Day candy and grab a few other things. I picked up some salmon that was fresh, never frozen and happened to be marked down! Score and score!

This salmon recipe is by far my favorite. I find myself using this marinade every time I have fresh salmon on hand. It is so simple and I almost always have the ingredients on here at the house.


You’ll need:

  • 1/4 Cup Orange Juice
  • 1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable oil

Mix all ingredients together and pour over salmon. Marinate salmon(in fridge) skin side up for 30 minutes to an hour.


Bake 425° for 15-18 mins. (Depending on how big of a piece of a salmon you have)
