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.
