A taste of teriyaki without the heavy sauce, this creative blend of asian spices, honey, soy and brown sugar is light enough to bring out the flavors of the salmon without being too overpowering.

Number of Servings: 4


    16 oz Salmon Filet with skin
    1/4 cup soy sauce
    2 TBSP brown sugar
    1 TBSP honey
    1 tsp minced ginger root
    1 TBSP minced onion (optional) can use 1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp minced garlic (optional) can use 1 tsp garlic powder


1] Preheat oven to 425 degrees

2] Wash and dry one 16 oz atlantic salmon filet. Pull out a foil sheet that will cover and create a tent for the salmon piece.

3] Place Salmon in middle of foil sheet, bring up the sides so that it makes a pocket.

4] cut slits in salmon horizontal, against the grain

5] Pour soy sauce, minced ginger, honey, brown sugar, minced garlic (optional), minced onion (optional) over the salmon, making sure to coat it evenly. pick up the salmon, and then coat the top. Make sure the entire filet is covered with marinade.

6] Marinate the salmon for 20 minutes in a oven safe baking dish, while in the foil wrapper.

7] Create a tent with the salmon, making sure to have at least 1 inch of space above and around the fish, before wrapping the aluminum foil tightly at the top and sides. This will keep the moisture inside and keep the fish tasting moist instead of dried out.

8] Bake at 425 degrees for 40 minutes, checking often after 30 minutes. As soon as the fish is flaking easily and is not raw on the insides, take the fish out. Don't let it overcook.

Makes 4 - 4 oz servings
Serve with Brown Rice and Steamed Asparagus

    Very good, fish is tender and juicy. I did not use Atlantic salmon because that is another name for farmed salmon. Farmed salmon has antibiotics, pesticides and uses a pink dye that can cause retinal damage. It's lower in nutritional value because of how it's fed. It also causes harm to wild salmon - 8/26/11

  • I made it in foil and used the extra sauce to drizzle over quinoa & steamed asparagus. Even w/ reduced-sodium soy sauce it was way too salty (was so thirsty for the rest of the night!) so will probably cut the soy in half and replace with water or wine next time. Otherwise it was tasty & easy! - 3/1/11

  • Very good flavor, and easy to make. The salmon came out very tender and moist, not dry at all. I was out of honey and substituted mirin instead, and it still tasted great! - 7/7/09
