Honey Ginger Glazed Salmon

Thanks to my big bag of Sam’s Club frozen salmon, I’ve cooked a fair amount of salmon.  It also happens to be my favorite fish!  After I cooked this recipe the first time, The Boy proclaimed it to be one of his favorites out of all the quick dinner meals I cook during the week.  That was a big step.  Usually all I get outta him is “Thanks boo, that was good.”  I enjoy feedback!  I definitely recommend this recipe.  It was tasty!  I will mention, I didn’t make the arugula salad that goes with it. But I make the dressing and put it over whatever salad green I have on hand. Usually romaine.


Honey Ginger Glazed Salmon


2/3 cup honey
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice, divided
2 tablespoons warm water (100° to 110°)
1 1/2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
4 (6-ounce) skinless salmon fillets (1 inch thick)
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 cups trimmed arugula


Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine honey, 2 tablespoons juice, water, ginger, and garlic in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk until blended. Pour honey mixture into a 13 x 9-inch baking pan; arrange fish in pan, skinned side up. Let stand 20 minutes. Turn fish over; sprinkle fish with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bake at 350° for 7 minutes. Remove from oven.

Preheat broiler.

Brush fish with honey mixture; broil 7 minutes or until fish is browned and flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.

Combine remaining 2 tablespoons juice, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, oil, and pepper in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk until blended. Add arugula; toss gently to coat. Serve salad with fish.

    I agree, those big bags of salmon are the best and I usually have at least one in the freezer all the time but especially in the summer when I’m grilling almost every day, lol.

    People don’t seem to be able to understand when i tell them I can literally eat salmon every day. I would say it’s my favorite fish followed by catfish and grouper.
