I love salmon and this is a sauce with some great ingredients, like honey, soy sauce and pineapple juice. Gleaned from CDkitchen.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauce:.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Stir occasionally until sauce begins to boil, then lower heat to simmer and cook uncovered for 15 minutes or until syrupy. Watch the sauce closely to be sure it doesn't bubble over.
  3. Preheat barbecue grill to medium heat, or turn on broiler. Rub each salmon filet with olive oil, then lightly sprinkle salt and pepper over top.
  4. Grill(or broil) the salmon for 4-7 minutes per side or until done.
  5. Serve salmon with a small cup of the honey pepper sauce on the side. Enjoy!

Wow this was absolutely delicious. I did however bake mine at 400 degrees for 8 minutes and then basted the salmon with some of the sauce and then broiled it for an additional 5 minutes for it to caramelize on top. It was perfect and I served it over brown rice with sauce poured on top of both...added an excellent flavor to the rice as well.

I loved this recipe. I actually saw this recipe somewhere else on Zaar and rated it 5 stars, so I thought it'd be fair to rate this the same, since the recipe looks almost identical, with an exception of the apple cider vinegar.

This is a wonderful salmon recipe!! I also poured the sauce over rather than using it as a dipping sauce oh my god is it moreish. I love the flavours that come through. I too do not like a sauce that is too sweet so I made exactly as stated then added a little more garlic and cayenne pepper to compensate. It was so good, the sweet flavour coming through followed by the spice from the cayenne. I got rave reviews all round, followed by empty plates, can't go wrong. LOL. I will be saving this into my salmon favourites. Thanks for a great post Sharon.
