This may have been one of the first salmon recipes I have ever made going back maybe 15 years ago. Ginger Soy Salmon has been a favorite for as long as I can remember!

At first I mixed soy sauce with brown sugar, sometimes added Sriracha, and somehow I eventually perfected the Ginger Soy Glaze which I make in large batches and keep in the fridge.

So I can use it on lots of dishes easily without having to remake it each time.

There’s a perfectly good store bought version of this glaze as well.

Whichever glaze you use, just promise me that you’ll make this salmon dish because it’s so simple, absolutely delicious, and very healthy!

It’s a perfect weeknight dinner because if the glaze is already made, it takes 5 minutes prep and only 12 minutes to cook.

How to Make Ginger Soy Salmon

Place the salmon filets on a lined baking sheet skin side down.

Some people eat the skin, me…not so much.

It’s a pain to remove the skin before cooking, but once the salmon is cooked, the skin easily separates and sticks to the baking sheet (another reason to line it, saves clean up 🙂 )

Put a small amount of glaze into a bowl and brush directly onto the salmon.

I do this several times to get a few good coats on it.

You want to put it in a bowl so you don’t contaminate the whole container with using the brush on the raw salmon and back into the glaze.

Into a 425 degree oven for 12 minutes, on the middle rack.

If you want a charred or caramelized top, turn the broiler on high for the last minute.

I served Ginger Soy Salmon with cauliflower rice, topped with sesame seeds and green onions.

You’ll want to have plenty of glaze on the side to dip or drizzle!

Ingredients

Ginger Soy Salmon

  • 4 salmon filets (approx. 1/2 pound per piece)
  • 1/2 cup Ginger Soy Glaze (store bought or follow recipe below)
  • Optional: cauliflower rice, sesame seeds, green onions

Ginger Soy Glaze

  • 2 cups soy sauce
  • 1 cup honey
  • 3 Tbsps ginger paste (in a tube)

Instructions

Ginger Soy Salmon

  1. If making Ginger Soy Glaze see recipe below, or use store bought. Place salmon filets on a lined baking sheet, skin side down. Pour 1/3 of the Ginger Soy Glaze in a bowl, use  this glaze to brush on the salmon several times and reserve the rest to drizzle over top when the dish is served.

  2. Place the baking sheet into a 425 degree oven for 12 minutes. If you want the top charred, turn broiler on high on for the last minute. When removing salmon from baking sheet, slide a spatula between the salmon and salmon skin and it will easily separate.

  3. Serve over top of cauliflower rice with sesame seeds and green onions if desired. Serve the extra Ginger Soy Glaze on the side for dipping or drizzling.

Ginger Soy Glaze

  1. Whisk together ingredients in a small saucepan and bring just to a boil, reduce to low. Continue whisking every minute for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. It will thicken even more as it cools. Keep in a container in the fridge for up to several weeks. When ready to use just microwave a few seconds to make it drizzle-able again
