Honey-Soy Broiled Salmon


by NICHOLAS AMMATURO on January 3rd, 2016

I swore I posted this recipe before, but I can’t seem to find it….so clearly I am going crazy. I am surprised it took me so long to post this one from EatingWell. I never used to eat salmon, I even used to avoid it. It was always the fishiest in my head, but I don’t ever remember trying it. I saw this one day on EatingWell and loved the ingredients. I thought maybe I could learn to like salmon, if I cooked it myself.

So here I was, scared to even touch salmon and I made this recipe. The minute I could smell the honey caramelize, I knew I was going to love it. I was right.

Honey-Soy Broiled Salmon



  • 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 (they can skin it where you buy it)
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds


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.

Preheat broiler. Line a small baking pan with foil and coat with cooking spray.



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.
