This honey ginger orange salmon is so full of flavor and easy to make! The glaze is made with
Florida OJ, and has the perfect combination of zest and sweetness. This recipe was made in partnership with Florida Orange Juice , but all opinions are my own.

I’m always on the hunt for new marinades for my salmon. I love combining sweet and savory
flavors, and always love a little zest on my fish. The delicious honey ginger glaze takes 5 minutes
to make, and can be used as a marinade for vegan proteins as well, like tofu! Plus, it contains
the beneficial nutrients found in Florida OJ!

It’s made with Florida Orange Juice, honey, ginger, garlic, coconut aminos and a few other
pantry staples.

Why choose Florida Orange Juice?

An 8-ounce serving of 100% orange juice provides you with more than the recommended daily
intake for vitamin C. It’s also a good source of folate, potassium, and thiamin, which can all help
support a healthy immune system.

Fortified 100% OJ is also a great way to get calcium and vitamin D into your diet to help with
immune health, and support bone health.

National Nutrition Month

March is National Nutrition Month, which is an annual campaign created by the Academy of
Nutrition and Dietetics to emphasize the importance of making healthy food choices and living
a balanced lifestyle.  

I believe there’s room for all foods in our diets, but truly enjoy cooking and baking from scratch
using feel-good ingredients, like Florida Orange Juice.

Growing up, we used a lot of pre-made sauces and marinades in our cooking that were high in
sugar, so I love to get creative and make my own versions when I cook. Using Florida OJ
provides a natural sweetness with no added sugar.

Pairing your serving of Florida OJ with other nutrients such as fiber and protein can help create
a balanced meal.

What you’ll need to make Honey Ginger Orange Salmon:

  • Salmon fillets, about 6
  • Florida Orange Juice
  • Fresh orange slices
  • Honey
  • Coconut Aminos
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Olive oil
  • Tapioca flour
  • Salt & pepper

Whisk together the marinade ingredients, and pour it over your salmon fillets. The longer the
fish marinates in the fridge, the better it tastes! You can prep this in the morning, and bake it
closer to dinner time.

I love to serve this dish with brown rice and a simple kale salad.

Prep time


Cooking time


Total time



1. If you’re prepping ahead, you can let the salmon marinate for a few hours and bake it 30 minutes before your meal time
2. You can substitute low sodium soy sauce instead of coconut aminos, but adjust the salt amount. I would start with 1/4 tsp and add more if needed


  • 2 lbs 2 salmon, or about 6 individual fillets

  • 2 tbsp 2 olive oil, to drizzle

  • Salt & pepper

  • 1 orange, sliced

  • Honey Ginger Orange Glaze
  • 1 cup 1 Florida Orange Juice

  • 1 tbsp 1 orange zest

  • 3 tbsp 3 honey

  • ¼ cup coconut aminos

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 2 tsp 2 grated ginger

  • ¾ tsp salt

  • 2 tsp 2 tapioca flour


  • Preheat your oven to 400 F.
  • Pat your salmon dry, place it onto a deep baking dish or sheet pan and season with salt & pepper.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together all of the glaze ingredients, using only 1 tsp of tapioca flour. You’ll add the last tsp before broiling.
  • Pour the sauce over the salmon, then drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 15 minutes if using individual fillets, and about 18-22 minutes for a larger piece of salmon. .
  • Remove from oven and whisk the last tsp of tapioca flour into the sides of the baking dish directly into the sauce. This will help thicken the sauce while it broils. Spoon some of the sauce onto the salmon
  • Set your oven to broil, and place the salmon back in for 3-4 minutes. Once finished, spoon the sauce over the salmon and serve fresh with your choice of sides.
