Impress everyone with this honey glazed salmon recipe! The easy flavorful sauce features honey, soy, miso and garlic.


  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillets, room temperature
  • Olive oil, for brushing
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for brining
  • 2 tablespoons yellow or white miso
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (or tamari)
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Chopped parsley, for garnish (optional)


  1. Brine the salmon* (optional): In a shallow dish whisk together 4 cups room temperature water and 3 tablespoons kosher salt until it dissolves. Place the salmon in the water and wait for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat the broiler to high.
  3. Make the glaze: Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the miso, honey, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, garlic powder, and ground ginger.
  4. Prepare the salmon: Place a large sheet of aluminum foil on a baking sheet and brush it with olive oil. Pat each piece of salmon dry and place it on the foil skin side down. Brush the salmon with a bit of the olive oil and sprinkle with the 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt evenly divided among the fillets. Reserve about half of the glaze and brush the remainder on the salmon.
  5. Broil the salmon: Broil 7 to 10 minutes for 1-inch thick salmon (or less for thinner fish), until it’s just tender and pink at the center (the internal temperature should be between 125 to 130°F in the center). Pour the reserved glaze onto the salmon and garnish with the parsley, if using. Serve immediately. Leftovers last refrigerated for up to 3 days.
