Baked Salmon with a Sweet-Soy Marinade

Yields: enough marinade for 2-3 salmon filets

  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 4 Tbsp. soy sauce (or a low sodium alternative)
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil



  1. In a small bowl or cup, mix all of the ingredients above together.
  2. In a shallow dish or plastic bag, place your salmon filets flat and let them soak in the marinade.
  3. Place them into the fridge to keep cool, and let them soak in the marinade for about 30 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  5. After the marinade is set in (about 30 minutes), place the salmon filets on a non-stick baking sheet with the excess marinade poured out on top.
  6. Bake until the salmon is cooked all the way through. This should take about 12 to 15 minutes.
  7. Take it out of the oven and serve it immediately. This dish pairs perfectly with a side salad or roasted vegetables.
