Asian grilled salmon isn't difficult to make at home! Believe me, with this recipe, you'll be firing up your grill & eating it in no time!


  • 1 (15 oz.) can + 2 (4 oz.) Snack Cups Dole Mandarin Oranges, divided
  • 1 lb. thick cut fresh salmon filet
  • 10 large green onions with green stems, divided + 2 extra green onions for garnish
  • 2 tsp. Korean sweet & spicy sauce (or similar Asian-type hot sauce)
  • 5 Tbl. orange marmalade
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 ½ tsp. coarse ground pepper
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 5 oz. chow mein noodles


Open and drain mandarin oranges reserving the liquid. Place salmon in a shallow glass dish. Prick flesh with a fork. Mix one teaspoon each of salt and pepper with the mandarin juice. Drizzle on the salmon. Set aside for 15 minutes.

MAKING SAUCE: Heat the gas grill to 400 to 450. Coat a skillet with cooking spray and put 1 ½ cups of the mandarin oranges (with juice) in. Place skillet on medium hot grill blaze and sauté 5 minutes. Put 6 green onions on the hot grill, turn and cook until they are charred. Remove, let the onions cool then chop onions into pieces. Put oranges & onions into a food processor and blend. Put mixture in a saucepan and heat on a medium high blaze on grill.

Add to this saucepan the remaining mandarin juice, sweet and spicy sauce, marmalade, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium low. Stir occasionally and let this cook about 20-30 minutes to thicken. Remove from heat. Add mayonnaise and blend. Slice the remaining green onions/tops and add to sauce.

GRILLING SALMON: Coat grill with cooking spray. Heat to 400 to 450. Place salmon (skin side up first) on grill and cook on each side about 4-5 minutes.

Remove & let cool slightly. Remove bottom skin. Break salmon into random chunks. Put in a large mixing bowl. Add celery and toss. Drizzle the thickened sauce over salmon/celery and toss.

PLATING and SERVING: Put equal amounts of chow mein noodles on small plates. Top with equal amounts of the salmon mixture and the remaining drained mandarin orange slices. Chiffonade slice the two green onions and use as garnish atop the salmon.


This recipe can easily be done on the stove top.

To char the green onions, put on a cookie sheet and under the broiler until somewhat charred.
