    • Seasonings: Salt and pepper.
    • Glaze: Honey, sriracha, minced garlic, white wine vinegar, and ground ginger.
    • To serve: Optional, but I love to add sesame seeds and sliced green onions to the baked fish.

    Can you make it ahead of time?

    Yes, if you meal prep the honey sriracha sauce the night before, you can make this recipe even quicker! Mix the honey glaze ingredients in a small bowl, cover it and place it in the fridge. All you need to do is brush the salmon with the glaze and pop it in the oven when you are ready and cook it. You can’t beat that! Super easy and quick weeknight dinner.

    Can you use frozen salmon?

    I prefer to use fresh fillets for this honey sriracha salmon, but frozen is often more convenient. Be sure to thaw your salmon completely and pat dry with a paper towel before brushing it with the glaze

    When salmon is frozen, it takes on a lot of extra water which can make it quite mushy when it is cooked, so before you bake it make sure you remove as much excess moisture as you can.

    What do you serve honey glazed salmon with?

    TIPS FROM NELI’S KITCHEN

    Recipe Notes and Tips for honey glazed salmon

    • Make sure not to overcook the honey sriracha salmon. Use a fork to test it for doneness, it should flake easily. When salmon is over-baked it can become quite dry in texture.
    • You can swap the honey for maple syrup if you prefer and white wine vinegar can be substituted for apple cider vinegar.
    • When making the glaze, you can first add less sriracha sauce, taste it and add more if you desire.
    • Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of your salmon fillets.

      Thanks!

    Honey and Sriracha make a great glaze!

    Question: Can I grill the marinated/rubbed salmon on a grill pan over a stove instead of baking. The wife loves salmon but hates baked fish.

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Yes, it should work. I would cook it over medium to medium high heat though because you don’t want the honey sriracha marinade to burn. Hope you enjoy it! πŸ™‚

    Laura @MotherWouldKnow

    Love simple marinades like this. The photo is so beautiful too. I’m with Laura T – serious food porn.

    Marcia

    what do I do with the remains 1/3 of the marinade ? Its doesn’t get mentioned in the recipes !!

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Just before serving, you can brush the salmon fillets with the other 1/3 of the marinade. Hope you enjoy it! πŸ™‚

    Sandhya

    You had me at honey and Sriracha. Your recipe and pictures are simply brilliant!

    Marissa @ OMG FOOD

    I also love quick 30 minute meals! It’s great to make a tasty meal in a short amount of time. I’m also a sucker for honey sriracha and usually make that sauce to have with chicken wings. I’ll have to try your recipe next time I have salmon in the house. <3

    Lovely marinade. I am sure it would work well with paneer or tofu…the veggie option.
