Honey Ginger Salmon

"My friends say this is the best fish they've ever had! Serve with quinoa tossed with some ginger and garlic. I created this recipe as an accompinent to various Asian dishes I was preparing. Can be eaten along side a noodle salad with chopsticks as well."

Ready In:




  • Place Fillets in a large sheet of tin foil.
  • Season fillets with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Drizzle with honey.
  • Sprinkle and/or press garlic and ginger on the fish.
  • Douse in olive oil.
  • Seal the edges of the tin foil around the fish, forming a "pocket" that does not allow for the escape of steam.
  • Cook at 180/375 for 10 minutes and then remove from oven and CAREFULLY open the pouches.
  • Return to the oven to cook as per your tastes for the remainder of the time.
  • I prefer this fish to be "over cooked" and for the honey to take on a carmelized consistancy and the fish to be slightly "tough" and chewy. Though this is also excellent with a soft buttery consistancy fish. You'll know it is done when the fish looses it's transparent color and flakes apart in the center/thickest part with a fork.
  • Batay Avon! Bon Appitete! Happy Eating!

  1. This was very good, the combination of honey and salmon is outstanding! The only change I would make is to combine the honey, garlic, and ginger, then brush it onto the fish to give a more even distribution of the flavors. I left out the oil in order to lower the calories a bit, but I don't think it made a difference in the flavor. This is a recipe I will definitely make again. Made for PAC, Spring 2010.
  2. I thought this was pretty good. It was quick and easy and from start to finish took about 35 minutes. After the initial 10 minutes of cooking, I let it cook another 10 and it was perfect. The ginger and honey combo is great. My salmon was a little fatty, but I thought I'd post a pic anyway. Will probably make this again. Thanks.
  3. Your friends are right, this is some of the best fish ever! I also like my fish overdone and the caramelized honey together with the ginger was wonderful. We had this for an appetizer last Friday night and I just know this is going to be part of our Shabbat dinner for many Friday nights to come! Thanks!
