Baked honey ginger salmon is a tasty explosion of flavor that is incredibly quick and easy to make. It’s perfect for a busy weeknight.


  • 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce, gluten-free tamari, or Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 6-ounce skin-on salmon fillets
  • Olive oil
  • 3 green onions, sliced (green parts only)
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, vinegar, ginger, and garlic.
  2. Place salmon in a baking dish large enough to fit both pieces without overlapping. Pour half of the marinade over the pieces of fish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 375˚F, and reposition oven rack so that it is in the center.
  4. Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil. Remove fillets from the marinade and place on the baking sheet. Bake until the flesh flakes easily with a fork, about 12-15 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, add reserved marinade to a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Bring to a boil and cook until reduced to a glaze, about 5 minutes.
  6. Plate the fish with the reduced glaze on top. Garnish with sliced green onion and sesame seeds before serving.
