Honey Garlic Salmon

  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 2 1x


  • 1 lb. salmon fillet


  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce


  1. Combine the sauce ingredients and marinate the salmon in the sauce for 15-30 minutes
  2. Arrange salmon on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes depending on thickness, basting the salmon with the leftover marinade halfway through
  3. Over medium high heat, bring the leftover marinade sauce to a boil and simmer for 3-5 minutes until reduced *
  4. Dish and serve the salmon hot drizzled with reduced sauce


For a slightly crisp and caramelized top, sear the top of the salmon over medium high heat for 1-2 minutes before baking.

*If you are uncomfortable reducing the marinade to use as a drizzle, you can divide the sauce into half; half for marinade/basting and half to reduce for a drizzle. If you want even more sauce, double the sauce ingredients before diving it into half.
