  • 1 pound Fresh wild caught salmon
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice (about one large orange)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (about 1/4 of each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Lightly coat a casserole dish with about one tablespoon of olive oil.

  3. Rinse and pat dry salmon fillet.  Place salmon in the casserole dish, skin side down.

  4. Place orange juice, maple syrup, vinegar, ginger and salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk together. Set aside.

  5. Pour 1/2 of the glaze over the salmon fillet.  About 1/4 cup.  Set aside the remaining glaze.

  6. Bake salmon for approximately 20 minutes until cooked through.  Notes: Overall cooking time may vary slightly depending on the thickness of your fish.

  7. Pour remaining glaze over the baked salmon.  Sprinkle with chopped herbs, like parsley, if desired.  Continue to spoon glaze from casserole dish over salmon.  Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Notes: Overall cooking time may vary slightly depending on the thickness of your fish.

To remove the skin of the ginger, use a spoon to pull away the ginger skin or a small paring knife will work.

Four ways to grate ginger:

  1. Using a fork
  2. Using a grater
  3. Using a zester
  4. Using a ginger grater

Cooking Tips:

  • Add sliced oranges to the casserole dish to cook alongside the salmon as a garnish.
  • Use wild-caught salmon for best taste and a dose of healthy omega 3 fats.
  • Store leftover knobs of ginger in the freezer for use in this and future recipes.
  • Use this grater for easily grated fresh ginger.
  • Drizzle salmon with casserole dish juices.
  • May substitute honey for the maple syrup.
