honey soy salmon

Hello my lovelies!

I'm currently house/pet sitting for a friend of mine while he travels the world in 4 weeks. I'm lucky that he lives really close by the a grocery store, but when you're lazy and not wanting to go anywhere you have to make the most of things. I came across this recipe for honey glazed salmon. It wasn't very tasty for some reason. I thought it to be too sweet. This time around I decided to play it up with some soy sauce. It came out pretty delish! Try it out and let me know what you guys think. If you have any suggestions on how to make this dish better, please let me know!

Honey Soy Salmon


  • 1/2 to 1 cup soy sauce
  • 2 filet salmon
  • 4 tbs of butter
  • 4 tbs of honey


  1. Pour soy sauce into a resealable bag or container. Submerge the salmon into the soy sauce. Let the salmon marinate in the soy sauce for an hour. If the salmon isn't completely submerged, either add more soy sauce or just flip the filets over after a half hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. In a pan over low heat, melt the butter. 
  4. When the butter is melted take off the heat. Spoon in the honey. (If you want to make this a little more sweeter, add a couple more tbs of honey.) Stir well.
  5. Take the filets out of the marinade and gently place them in to the pan of the honey mixture. Coat both sides of the filets well. 
  6. Place the filets into a baking dish. Spoon the leftover honey mixture over the salmon.   
  7. Put salmon into the oven and bake for 15 mins. 
  8. Serve warm with a side of rice or cous cous. 

Bon appetit!
