We eat quite a bit of salmon in our house. It’s so healthy and you can still buy wild salmon at a very reasonable price. I love broiling fish because of the easy clean up and quick cooking time.
Because salmon is thicker than most white fish, the longer broiling time makes for a nicely browned and crispy top which I really love. This is a simple yet delicious recipe that I have been making for years and almost always make it during the week because it is so easy to pull together.
Salmon with Honey, Soy, and Maple Syrup
- 2 lbs salmon cut into 2 inch fillets
- 1T olive oil
- 1T honey
- 1T maple syrup
- 2T light soy sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
- squeeze of fresh lime juice (optional)
- Make the marinade by mixing oil, honey, maple syrup and soy sauce in a bowl.
- Add the salmon along with the marinade in a large zip lock bag. Remove as much air as you can and store in the refrigerator turning a few times for up to 2 hours.
- Line a broiler pan with heavy duty foil and add the fish. (Discard marinade)
- Broil the fish until it’s browned on top but still a bit underdone in the middle. (The timing will vary depending on the thickness of the fish, the heat of the oven and the distance between your broiler element and the fish.)
- Salt and pepper to taste and add a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
We hope you enjoy this salmon recipe with honey, soy, and maple syrup.
