This just might be the easiest, most flavorful salmon you will ever make. Create a honey-sweetened, ginger, garlic, miso and soy sauce marinade which creates a nice crisp and caramelized crust after roasting. Once you cut into your salmon filet you end up with lovely juicy and tender meat. It’s almost like a piece of candy melting in your mouth.

The marinade is so easy to make. Baking salmon is really easy and requires little hands-on effort. Your baking time can vary depending on how thick your salmon filet is. The standard rule of thumb calls 10 minutes per inch of thickness. And that’s the secret to an extremely juice and flaky salmon.

I discovered that I like this recipe far more if I used a thinner salmon filet. That means more crust and more flavor.

The recipe is also perfect to serve to guests. You can of course marinated the fish overnight. You will just spend 1 minute in the kitchen to roast your salmon and once it’s in the oven your hands and kitchen is free for other things and enjoying time with your friends. I really like to serve this fish with some spinach, which is also prepared and cooked in no time.

Recipe Type: Main
Ingredients
  • 500 g (1 lb) salmon filet (without skin)
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1½ tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp miso paste
  • 6 Tbsp honey
  • 4 Tbsp soy sauce
Instructions
  1. Combine soy sauce, honey, miso paste, ginger and garlic in a bowl and whisk well.
  2. Place marinade and Salmon Filet in a Ziplock bag and refrigerate and marinate everything for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  3. I prepare something looking like a boat out of aluminum foil but of course you can also line a pan with foil.
  4. Preheat a heavy pan with just a tiny bit of peanut oil. Once your pan is extremely hot sear the top of the salmon for about 1 minute or until you have a nice crust.
  5. Immediately transfer your salmon to your prepared aluminum foil boat. Flip salmon so the crisp side is face up.
  6. Bake your salmon in your preheated oven at 180 C (350 F) for 15-20 minutes (depending on thickness). Baste salmon with the sauce halfway through.
  7. Pour marinate out of the Ziplock bag into a sauce pan. Bring sauce over medium high heat to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes until reduced.
  8. Serve Salmon with reduced sauce.

  1. Looks and sounds wonderful! On my “must cook” list.
    The taste will be exactly like I get in my local sushi restaurant.
    Thanks for your time to post. You have a lucky husband.

  2. Thank you for this recipe! The salmon was cooked perfectly with crispy bits and the marinade was sweet and delicious. Would absolutely recommend!

  3. I made the salmon tonight and it was wonderful. The salmon was moist and medium rare the way I like it and the crust was sweet and salty, a perfect combination. Thank you for an easy and delicious recipe.

  4. My fillets were a little over half an inch each. I baked them (without searing in the pan first) in the oven for about 6 minutes on 425, then broiled them for about a minute and a half (I have a gas oven that takes a little longer to broil than most electric ovens). I was sure to keep an eye on the fillets to make sure they didn’t overcook. They were perfectly delicious! Thank you for this recipe.
