Soy Ginger Salmon

Original recipe here.

1 lb salmon filets
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons lemon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/3 cup orange juice

In a small saucepan over medium heat, pour in brown sugar, lemon pepper, garlic powder, soy sauce, olive oil, and ground ginger. Heat until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in orange juice.
Place fish and marinade into a re-sealable plastic bag and refrigerate overnight for best results.
Reserve marinade and bake salmon at 400* for 15-20 minutes (time depends on thickness) in a non-stick sprayed baking pan/dish.
While salmon is baking, put marinade in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for several minutes, stirring occasionally. For a thicker sauce use cornstarch or a bit of flour while cooking.
Serve salmon with sauce on top.

DH, the salmon lover of the family, thought this was fantastic! I put my paranoia aside and cooked the marinade down unlike the original recipe. Glad I did! I also baked the fish rather than broil because I prefer to not have the smoke detectors in the house going off. :)
