Ingredients:

 

4 salmon fillets

1/4 cup honey

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon grated ginger

Salt and pepper to taste

Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions:

 

Prepare the Glaze:

In a small bowl, whisk together honey, soy sauce, olive oil, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, and grated ginger. This will be your flavorful glaze.

 

Marinate the Salmon:

Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish and season with salt and pepper. Pour half of the honey glaze over the fillets, ensuring they are well coated. Allow the salmon to marinate for at least 15 minutes to absorb the delicious flavors.

 

Preheat the Oven:

Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.

 

Bake the Salmon:

Place the marinated salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the salmon easily flakes with a fork.

 

Glaze and Broil:

During the last 2-3 minutes of baking, brush the remaining honey glaze over the salmon. If you prefer a caramelized finish, broil the salmon for an additional 1-2 minutes until the glaze is golden and bubbly.

 

Serve:

Remove the Honey Glazed Salmon from the oven, garnish with fresh chopped parsley, and serve immediately. Pair it with your favorite sides, like steamed vegetables or quinoa, for a wholesome meal.
