At least 30 min before:

When you're ready:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Remove the salmon from the marinade, and discard any leftover liquid.
  • Lightly grease the bottom of a baking dish, and place the salmon in it.
  • Brush with the reserved marinade/glaze, and cover with the blood orange slices.
  • Bake in the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes, depending on how thick the fillets are. The fish should be flaky and cooked all the way through.
