  • 1-1.5 lbs salmon one fillet or portions
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 6 cloves garlic minced

Serving - optional

  • green onion minced
  • sesame seeds


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and set a rack in the middle of the oven. 
  • Line a baking sheet or baking dish with parchment paper. Optional: spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together honey, soy sauce and minced garlic.
  • Place the salmon skin-side down on the parchment. 
  • Pour the honey garlic mixture evenly over the salmon. (Optional: place another piece of parchment on top and tuck the edges underneath the salmon.)
  • Bake for 15-25 minutes depending on the salmon thickness (see note), spooning with pan juices halfway through. Serve and enjoy!


Baking time will be longer for thicker salmon pieces, and shorter for thinner end pieces. Bake for about 5-7 minutes per 1/2-inch of salmon thickness.
