Enjoy the following orange glazed salmon recipe, shared by executive chefs at some of the area’s finest senior living communities.



  • 3 oz fresh salmon
  • 2 tablespoons mandarin orange glaze
  • 1 tablespoon crushed pecans 
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil


Pat salmon fillet dry and crust the flesh side with crushed pecans. Heat oil in a saute pan until just before smoking. Sear fillet crust side down until pecans become fragrant and slightly brown, approx. 1-2 minutes. Flip, cover with glaze and put in oven.

Cook in oven at 375 degrees until glaze begins to brown and bubble and fish reaches internal temp of 140F.



  • 1 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • 2 tablespoons honey


Combine all ingredients and whisk. Store remainder in airtight container.

Chef Nick says salmon is a year-round favorite with residents. It’s loaded with vitamins and antioxidants and a greatsource of protein and potassium. The orange glaze adds a hint of sweetness while adding garlic, ginger and honey, all healthy additions.
