Honey-Soy Broiled Salmon

Here's Patrick's most favorite salmon recipe. It is one of my favorites too but I enjoy trying out different recipes more! The recipe is from the Eating Well website which I absolutely love. Here's the recipe on the website and I've also pasted it below.

This recipe is quick and easy! We usually serve with brown rice and sauteed vegetables!

* 1 scallion, minced
* 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
* 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
* 1 tablespoon honey
* 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
* 1 pound center-cut salmon fillet, skinned and cut into 4 portions
* 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds

1. Whisk scallion, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and ginger in a medium bowl until the honey is dissolved. Place salmon in a sealable plastic bag, add 3 tablespoons of the sauce and refrigerate; let marinate for 15 minutes. Reserve the remaining sauce.
2. Preheat broiler. Line a small baking pan with foil and coat with cooking spray.
3. Transfer the salmon to the pan, skinned-side down. (Discard the marinade.) Broil the salmon 4 to 6 inches from the heat source until cooked through, 6 to 10 minutes. Drizzle with the reserved sauce and garnish with sesame seeds.

*We did not garnish with sesame seeds.
*The marinade is very easy to prepare. Always do a taste test before you marinade to make sure the ratio of sweet and tangy is to your liking! The last time we prepared this we marinaded for about 30minutes and the salmon was the tastiest it had ever been!!


  1. Experimenting with the marinade is super fun! Add honey for more sweet, soy for more salt, or vinegar for more sour, and leave the tablespoons to the tables.
