Orange Maple Tamari Salmon


Looking for another great (and fast!) salmon recipe to add to your repertoire? Here is a delicious, easy and flavourful recipe to try using freshly squeezed orange juice, maple syrup and tamari (an alternative to soy sauce). This recipe was inspired by the hoisin-honey-lime salmon recipe I posted last year, but I wanted to try a different flavour combination. You can find tamari right next to the soy sauce in the grocery store.


  • 4 boneless skinless salmon fillets
  • Zest and juice of half an orange
  • 2 tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 2 teaspoons reduced sodium Tamari
  • Coarse (Kosher) salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Sesame seeds and green onion (didn’t have any on hand but would have used it!) for garnish


  1. Pre-heat your oven broiler and line a baking sheet with non-stick aluminum foil or spray regular aluminum foil with cooking spray.
  2. Combine the maple syrup and tamari and set aside.
  3. Place salmon fillets on the baking sheet and squeeze orange over the fillets, as well as grate some zest over each. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Broil salmon for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove salmon from oven, baste each fillet with the glaze using a silicon brush.
  6. Place the salmon back into the oven and broil for an additional 3 minutes until glaze has thickened.
  7. Remove from the oven and serve over quinoa or rice. Drizzle glaze remaining on baking sheet over the salmon and garnish with sesame seeds (and green onion if desired). Serve with your favourite veggies.
