Blood Orange-Soy Salmon

  • Prep Time 0:25
  • Cook Time 0:12
  • Estimated Cost $9.00

This salty-sweet rendition of salmon is wonderful served hot alongside rice and vegetables, but I also love it cold over a bed of lightly dressed baby spinach and sliced almonds. Feel free to omit the chili sauce if you’re not a fan of spiciness.


  • 2 4-oz. fillets of salmon, preferably wild, skin-on $5
  • 1/8 cup soy sauce Pantry
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar Pantry
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced Pantry
  • 1 small piece ginger, peeled and minced $0.50
  • 1 blood orange (half zested and juiced, half sliced into thin rounds) $0.50
  • 1-2 tsp(s) Asian chili sauce (depending on taste) $2 for 8 oz.
  • 1 small bunch flat-leaf parsley, chopped $1

Recipe Serves 2


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, blood orange zest and juice and chili sauce in a large bowl. Whisk until well-incorporated. Place salmon, flesh-side down in the marinade, gently pressing salmon down to ensure that all of it is exposed to the marinade. Allow to marinate like this in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  3. Once salmon has marinated, place fillets, skin-side down in a glass baking dish. top each fillet with 1-2 slices of blood orange and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until fish is cooked to desired done-ness.
  4. Serve garnished with flat-leaf parsley.
