honey soy roasted salmon

My recipe for honey soy salmon is a satisfying, delicious dish that work well any time of year.  In the colder months, prepare as the recipe below, in the oven, but in warmer months it is fantastic on an outdoor grill.

You can serve this dish family style or prepare individual plates.  Fish needs to be served immediately as it does not retain heat as much as a meat dish.  If you have two ovens, put one oven on the warm setting to keep all items warm as you plate.

thoughts&stories

The first time I made this dish, I cooked it on a grill for a summer dinner with some English friends.  After dinner, I remember one of our friends telling me that when he heard we were having salmon, he was disappointed because he felt like something more hearty, like beef.  But he said the salmon and all the wonderful flavors made the meal rich and satisfying- absolutely amazing.  I took that as a big compliment and have happily served this menu for lunch and dinner ever since- it is delicious….and very simple to prepare.

Directions

1
Done

Remove any small bones on salmon, rinse with water, cut in appropriate portion size (about 2 inches) and pat dry. Set aside.

2
Done

Add honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger and garlic to medium bowl and mix well.

3
Done

Place salmon in a container with lid or baking dish, pour the soy glaze over all fish coating well, and let marinate for at least 20 minutes or overnight in refrigerator.

4
Done

When ready to cook place salmon in a baking dish with all the marinade.

5
Done

Heat oven to 350F (180C) degrees.

6
Done

Cook for 15-20 minutes until slightly flaky inside (temperature to 145F). I check after 15 minutes to determine how it is coming because overcooked salmon is not good.

Done

Transfer to a serving dish, or keep in baking dish. Add garnish and serve immediately.
