Easy makes it around this house these days. All we really want is easy recipes that we can quickly prepare for the whole family.

Fortunately, almost everyone in our home loves fish. We live in Minnesota and fish a lot during the summer and winter, so we always have a lot of ice cream.

So when the impulse calls, we always take them out of the freezer and defrost. Unfortunately, we can't fish for salmon, but everyone loves it.

Especially when it comes to this orange-glazed salmon, this recipe is super easy, pairing from start to finish in under 30 minutes and everyone loves it.

At what temperature do you cook salmon?

There really is no right or wrong answer to this question. You can cook salmon at 350 degrees, 400 degrees, 450 degrees, etc.

We chose to cook our orange glazed salmon recipe at 400 degrees F. It gives us a shorter cook time that makes the recipe quick and easy.

The internal temperature of the salmon must be 145 degrees F to be considered done, as long as it crumbles and changes from a reddish color to a dull pink.

We like to use a larger fillet for this recipe, but it can also be made with smaller fillets, around 4-5 6-oz fillets each.

You'll need to adjust the cook time slightly to use smaller cuts, but as long as you have a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature, it's fine.

We also like to use the skin on salmon as well. The recipe itself comes off the skin, so you don't really have to worry about getting anything from the skin while eating.

You can choose to do this with skinless salmon, or remove the skin yourself if you have time. We simply prefer if it is activated for this recipe.

What goes well with salmon?

There are many amazing side dishes that pair well with fish, especially citrus flavored fish.

Some of our favorites are simply a salad, muffins, baked asparagus, grilled vegetables, etc.

There really are no limits to what you decide you want or you can serve with a salmon recipe because everyone has their own preferences.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Find yourself a good even salmon fillet to cook evenly, you don't want one that is really uneven because you will have parts that are overcooked or undercooked.
  • Make sure the internal temperature of your salmon reaches 145 degrees F. for optimal cooking.
  • Using aluminum foil really helps with cleaning this recipe and prevents salmon and frosting from sticking, as the honey will burn at high temperatures.
  • You can continue to glaze this salmon while cooking, just use a pastry brush and brush some of the frosting on the sides of the salmon.
  • If desired, lean your salmon to cook on a few orange slices, this will also enhance the flavor of the orange and help your salmon stick.

This glazed salmon is truly one of our favorites. Who doesn't love a meal of less than 30 minutes that feeds the whole family! I know I do.
