This Honey Garlic Salmon is a terrific way to serve salmon that is just sooooo crazy quick and soooo crazy delicious! He said this was the best salmon he’s ever had and to please keep making it this way when we have salmon. Whole salmon are usually gutted: if you’re cooking a whole salmon, the gills should be removed. Even my sort of fussy eater raved about it. Thanks for creating such yummy and easy meals.
I didn’t have fresh garlic or ginger on hand so I used the frozen cubes, 1 garlic and 4 ginger (I like ginger and always lighten garlic in all recipes). Readily available all year round, farmed salmon generally has a rich, mild flavor, but lacks the salinity of wild salmon.
I used wild sockeye salmon for the first time and it was worth the few extra bucks! Use the natural essences of ginger, ruby-red grapefruit juice, honey and cayenne pepper to bring roasted salmon to new, healthy heights. I’ve made this many times now, and it is always perfect, in addition to being easy and quick.
Roll them in sugar, fork them down flat, and bam in the oven for 6 minutes at 300F and your done. Flip the salmon and briefly kiss the second side with the pan to give it a touch of color. Ever since we went 90% organic , we are more aware of GMOs and coming up with a homemade version of Thai Sweet Chili Sauce Recipe was a must to keep enjoying our baked Thai salmon recipe.
If your salmon filets are smaller than about 7 ounces each, these numbers will be lower. Serving Suggestion: I usually serve the salmon with a sort of homemade tartar sauce mixing mayonnaise, lemon zest and juice, some of the same herb I used on the fish, capers, and a very small amount of hot sauce.
