Featured Recipe-Asian Inspired Salmon

Every week I am going to feature a great recipe that I have made and I feel you should know about. Inpatskithen recipe for Asian Inspired Salmon is the perfect quick and delicious meal. The glaze is outstanding. Sweet and spicy, with just the right amount of acid to balance it. It compliments the salmon perfectly. I love that the glaze is also the marinade, I used a blood orange marmalade and added a little lemon zest (I love lemon in just about everything).  Pat is an active homecook and you can see her many recipes not only on her blog but on food52. This recipe was also a finalist in Whole Foods salmon contest. You can visit her blog or view her other recipes at

  2. Thank you, it probably would have looked better without the blood orange marmalade though. It’s such a wonderful recipe, one of my favorites. Thank you so much for allowing me to share. My honor!

    I haven’t prepared salmon in a long time. The orange marmalade, red pepper and soy sauce sound wonderful together. Great recipe; as always!

    • I haven’t made salmon in a while either, just got some last week and froze it. Just been too hot to cook. I love this recipe. The sweet and salty combo is delicious. Thank you so much.
