Sweet and Spicy Orange Glazed Salmon


Orange glazed salmon is citrus-fresh, with the perfect balance between sweet and savory. A spice rub gives the pink salmon a lovely color; it lends just enough heat to make it interesting.

Sweet and Spicy Orange Glazed Salmon  Print Recipe

2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
(1/4 teaspoon salt if your Cajun seasoning does not contain salt)
6 boneless, skinless salmon fillets (about 6 oz. each)
1/2 cup orange marmalade
2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice, or to taste

1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

2. In a small bowl, combine Cajun seasoning, brown sugar, paprika, and salt (if your Cajun seasoning doesn't already contain salt). Rub mixture over all surfaces of fillets, covering completely. Place fillets on prepared baking sheet.

3. In a small bowl, combine marmalade  and lime juice. Spoon liberally over fillets, covering completely.

4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until fish flakes when tested with a fork.

  14. Good Evening Joy, I love salmon and this is quite different to how I prepare salmon. I have never used Marmalade to glaze a salmon and I find this so interesting. I have the very last jar of Marmalade which I made last year, in my store cupboard, so instead of enjoying Marmalade on toast I am going to try your recipe. Can I ask what spices are used in a Cajun seasoning, as I am not familiar with this seasoning and I would like to make my own. I am really looking forward to trying this recipe as both Salmon and Marmalade are two things which I love.
    Best Wishes to you.
