Honey Soy Salmon

Meet Honey Soy Salmon – a tasty dinner that’s anything but complicated. Imagine this: a crispy sear on salmon, just delicious. No need for a chef’s hat – you’ve got this.

Start with your salmon – a sprinkle of salt and pepper will do. Mix up a quick sauce with soy sauce, honey, and a few kitchen buddies. Let the salmon soak it up for a bit – the longer, the better, but no pressure.

Now, the cooking part. Toss your salmon into a hot pan. Hear that sizzle? That’s your dinner in the making. Flip it, let it get golden on both sides – easy peasy.

But wait, there’s more. A little cornstarch and water mixed into the leftover sauce in the pan – that’s your secret glaze. Pour it over the salmon, let it thicken, and you’re practically a chef.

Serve it over rice – maybe toss some green onions and sesame seeds on top if you’re feeling extra. Voilà – dinner’s served, and you didn’t need a culinary degree.

No need to make a big deal out of it. Honey Soy Salmon is just a simple, tasty dish, perfect for a weeknight when you want something good without the fuss. Enjoy your meal – no dramatics necessary.

  • Large non-stick skillet
  • Mixing bowls
  • Whisk
  • Tongs
  • Cooking spatula


  • 4 salmon fillets about 6 oz each
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger grated
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Green onions and sesame seeds for garnish


Prepare the Salmon:

  • Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels.
  • Season both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Make the Honey Soy Marinade:
  • In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, olive oil, minced garlic, grated ginger, rice vinegar, and sesame oil.

Marinate the Salmon:

  • Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish or a zip-top bag.
  • Pour half of the honey soy marinade over the salmon, ensuring it is evenly coated.
  • Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes.

Cook the Salmon:

  • Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Remove the salmon from the marinade, allowing excess to drip off.
  • Place the salmon skin-side down in the hot skillet.
  • Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until a crispy sear forms, and the salmon is cooked to your desired doneness.

Make the Glaze:

  • In a small bowl, mix cornstarch with water to create a slurry.
  • Add the slurry to the remaining honey soy marinade.
  • Pour the mixture into the skillet, coating the salmon.
  • Allow it to simmer for an additional 1-2 minutes until the sauce thickens.


  • Transfer the salmon to a serving platter or individual plates.
  • Drizzle with the thickened honey soy glaze.
  • Garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds.

Enjoy: Serve the honey soy salmon triumphantly over a bed of fluffy rice


    1. Ensure the salmon is patted dry before cooking to achieve a crispy sear.
    2. Adjust honey and soy sauce amounts based on personal taste preferences.
    3. Customize with additional vegetables like steamed broccoli or bok choy for added texture and flavor.
    4. Resting time allows the juices to redistribute, keeping the salmon moist.
