Sweet Soy Salmon

I found this recipe on Delish who credits Eating Well. Mixing your meals up and having fish instead of chicken can be fun and keep your body guessing. Salmon also is full of omega 3's and protein...definitely does the body good.

Honey-Soy Broiled Salmon

One sweet, tangy and salty mixture does double-duty as marinade and sauce. Toasted sesame seeds provide a nutty and attractive accent. Make it a Meal: Serve with brown rice and sauteed red peppers and zucchini slices.

Serves: 4

Prep Time: 30 min

Cook Time: 10 min


  • 1 scallion, minced
  • 2 tablespoon(s) reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon(s) rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon(s) honey
  • 1 teaspoon(s) minced fresh ginger
  • 1 pound(s) center-cut salmon fillet, skinned (see Tip) and cut into 4 portions
  • 1 teaspoon(s) toasted sesame seeds, (see Tip)


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
