Honey Soy Salmon

Honey Soy Salmon is healthy and full of flavor with honey, soy, ginger and scallions broiled in your oven in less than ten minutes!

Honey Soy Salmon  Honey Soy Salmon is one of the first recipes I ever tried when I started Weight Watchers in 2008. I found it in a magazine called Eating Well and it became a recipe we put into our weekly rotation. We loved it and we spent the points for it! Remember back then salmon wasn’t point free, so this recipe was considerably harder to fit into the day.

Now, all this flavor is just ONE smart point. And that point is from the honey. Everything else in this recipe is zero points and you’ll enjoy this recipe so much I know you’ll be bookmarking this page and coming back to it often.

We usually marinate the salmon for a couple of hours before cooking it, but even just ten or fifteen minutes is plenty of time.

The entire prep is just add the ingredients into a ziploc back (I use gallon size) and let it sit for 10-15 minutes while your oven heats up. Then just 7-9 minutes in the oven and it is done!

You can also use this same marinade on shrimp or steak.

Tools used in the making of this Honey Soy Salmon:
Honey: I use this brand because it is guaranteed to be real honey and it is the best price per pound (but buy it in the store!)
Lite Soy Sauce: I never use the full sodium variety, but always have this on hand.

  1. I have a question about the marinade – am I reading the instructions right that you keep the uncooked marinade and use again at the end? Or are you saying, add it to the pan for broiling, and spoon top of the salmon at the end?

      1. The stuff the uncooked salmon was sitting in? Or are you supposed to save some of the marinade at the beginning?

          1. Tyler, salmon can actually be eaten raw, so I’m not sure what contamination you’re referring to. Plus, the marinade cooks in the oven with the salmon as well, so any germs would be cooked out.

  2. I made this recipe tonight and it was delicious! I did pour it all into a dish after marinating in bag and cooked in oven at 400 for fifteen minues. Great flavor and will make this often.

    1. My apologies for not seeing this so much sooner. We had a glitch with spam filtering. I know it’s much too late to answer this but I’m trying to follow up with everyone. You’re going to hold back the marinade while you broil and top at the end. I hope it turned out good!

  3. 5 stars
    Terrific recipe! I’m making it again for dinner tonight.

    I took the “top with the remaining marinade and serve” as if there was any remaining marinade in the pan that the salmon was cooking in.

    That said, there is salmon and sushi grade salmon. Sushi grade salmon is frozen first, and kept extremely cold to kill all harmful bacteria. So no, not all salmon is eaten raw. Just an FYI.

    1. I’m so sorry this got caught in my spam filter. You’ve long either made this or not, but yes I have marinated this overnight successfully.

  4. I would not use the remaining marinade unless it’s cooked after being used on the United cooked fish
