Thanks to my long-time friend, Vivi Mizrahi, for this Sweet Orange Salmon recipe! Are you as big a fan of salmon as I am? I fell in love with this recipe the first time I tried it at Vivi’s house. Because it’s marinated in a sweet orange sauce, the fish becomes tender and juicy when it’s baked. The salmon practically falls apart trying to transfer it to a serving plate.

Two servings of sweet orange salmon are displayed next to each other, with cutlery resting on top of a white napkin sitting between the two plates. A glass of water is displayed as well.

Vivi’s homeland is Israel, the heart of Mediterranean cuisine. Though this salmon recipe isn’t a traditional Israeli dish, it tops my list of favorites because of it’s versatility. Serve it over a bed of lettuce, rice, mashed potatoes, or sautéed vegetables and use the extra marinade as a dressing or gravy.  Whatever way you enjoy this salmon,  it may just be your favorite recipe too.
