This is the absolute tastiest broiled salmon I've ever had, and only takes about 25 minutes from start to finish! Using just a few ingredients, you will have delicious meal in no time. I recommend serving it with steamed edamame or broccoli and brown rice.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a heat-resistant baking dish (such as Pyrex®) with aluminum foil and place salmon, skin-side down, in the dish.

  • Mix soy sauce, ginger, honey, sesame seeds, and cayenne pepper together in a small bowl until honey is dissolved. Pour over salmon fillet, making sure top of salmon is completely covered.

  • Cook under the preheated broiler until top of salmon has begun to turn golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and baste the top of the fillet with glaze. Turn the broiler off and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • Return to the preheated oven and bake until fish has a rich, dark brown glaze and flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes. Remove skin and serve.

Cook's Note:

As all ovens are different, broiling and baking times may vary.

We used in on coho salmon fillets. It was very good AND it was a recipe of normal ingredients that we had on hand. Read More

I really liked the flavor combo and this was simple to make. I do feel the method was a little backwards. Typically I bake and then finish off under the broiler. It did lose some of the crisp it got under the broiler but the flavor was still good. Read More

Everything was delicious! The skin, however, came right off. I think I would shorten the broil times by a minute or two, and that's about it. Otherwise, it was PERFECT!!! Read More
