Ginger Soy Glazed Salmon
Yields 4 servings.


  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sriracha hot chili sauce or other hot sauce (optional)
  • 2 teaspoon canola oil (or other low saturated fat oil)
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Sliced scallions for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. (see notes)
  2. Whisk the soy sauce, honey, mustard, ginger and Sriracha together in a small bowl.
  3. Heat the oil in a large oven-safe sauté pan over medium high heat. When the pan is hot, place the salmon fillets in the pan, skin side up. Cook 2-3 minutes without moving, until a golden crust forms. Turn the fillets over and transfer the pan to the oven. Cook 5-6 minutes or until salmon is almost cooked through but still just slightly pink in the middle. Carefully remove the pan from the oven and transfer the salmon to a platter.
  4. Pour off any drippings from the pan, and heat the pan on the stove over medium high heat. Add the soy sauce mixture to the pan and cook 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened. Pour the glaze over the salmon. Garnish with scallions if desired.


  • As an option, you may cook the salmon entirely on the stovetop. The salmon fillets I most recently cooked were somewhat thinner that usual. I flipped the salmon after about four minutes and then poured in the glaze, allowing it to simmer and thicken slightly while the salmon finished cooking, which took just over a minute for the thickness of my fillets.
