Honey Glazed Salmon

Honey Glazed Salmon

This honey glazed salmon is packed with flavor including fresh ginger, shallot, and garlic. The sauce is top notch and ready to impress!


  • 1 pound salmon

For the sauce

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup orange juice, I use fresh squeezed
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place salmon in a baking dish and set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan heat the olive oil over medium/low heat. Add the shallot, ginger and garlic, and cook for 5 minutes until wilted, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the orange juice, molasses, ketchup, honey, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Keep the sauce at a low rolling boil for 2-3 minutes, stirring often.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer the sauce for about 5-7 minutes until it begins to thicken, stirring occasionally.
  • Pour the sauce over the salmon and bake for about 20-25 minutes. Spoon sauce over salmon again about half way through baking.


*Use any leftover salmon to top over a salad the next day!
*This sauce makes extra, enough for about 1 1/2 -2 pounds of fish. So you can either make more fish, or save the extra sauce and use it to serve over chicken or meat later in the week!
