Broiled Salmon with Honey Soy Glaze

Adapted from


If you don’t want to serve the salmon with sauce, prepare half the amount of ingredients for the marinade.

  • 1 pound center-cut salmon fillet, and cut into 4 portions
  • 1 scallion, minced
  • 4 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds, for serving


  1. Whisk scallion, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and ginger in a medium bowl until the honey is dissolved. Place salmon in a sealable plastic bag, add the sauce and refrigerate; let marinate for 30 minutes or up to 3 hours.
  2. Preheat broiler.
  3. Transfer salmon to a sheet pan. Pour the marinade into a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes until sauce thickens.
  4. Broil the salmon 4 to 6 inches from the heat source until cooked through, 6 to 10 minutes.
  5. Toast the sesame seeds by tossing them around in a dry skillet over medium heat for about 2 minutes.
  6. Drizzle with the sauce and garnish with sesame seeds.
