Soy, honey and garlic salmon

About this recipe: This marinade was a bit of an experiment, and it worked out really well. The sweetness of the honey with the salty soy sauce went perfectly well along with the garlic which I didn't expect! The salmon was incredibly moist and tender - I wished I had someone to share this with! I was just cooking for myself, since my mum doesn't eat fish. So please try this and let me know what you think. I wasn't very hungry at the time so I just served it with broccoli that I stir fried with sesame seeds, but this would be lovely with brown rice.

I also used dark soy sauce and tipped the rest of the marinade on top of the salmon in the foil. To go with it I made spicy, Chinese style stir fried rice, with the marinade poured over the salmon. My husband's only complaint was that there wasn't more of it! - 25 Mar 2015


I love this sauce. This sauce is good with salmon also with vegetables. - 03 Jan 2014


This is an absolutely gorgeous recipe! Fish was perfectly moist and flaky, after I put the salmon on the foil I tipped the rest of the marinade on top of the fish and I didn't want to waste a bit, and it came out lovely. I didn't use any oil, and I used dark soy sauce for a bit of a stronger flavour. Will definitely be making this again. - 13 Oct 2013
