Salmon is a versatile and nutritious fish that is loved by many. It's packed with omega-3 fatty acids, high-quality protein, and various vitamins and minerals. When it comes to cooking salmon, marinating it is a great way to infuse it with flavor and keep it moist and tender. And one of the most delicious marinades you can use is a combination of honey and garlic.

This blog will guide you through the process of marinating salmon with honey and garlic, from choosing the right type of salmon to cooking it to perfection.


  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions, divided

  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, divided

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot

  • 1 salmon fillet (2 pounds)

  • 4 cups fresh broccoli florets

  • 3 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2-inch slices (about 4 cups)

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  • Hot cooked rice, optional


  1. In a large bowl, whisk 1/4 cup green onion, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, vinegar, garlic, sesame oil, pepper flakes and ginger until blended. Pour 1/2 cup marinade into a shallow dish. Add salmon; turn to coat. Refrigerate, covered, 2-3 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.

  3. Preheat oven to 400°. Drain salmon, discarding marinade in dish. Place salmon on a greased rimmed baking sheet. Toss broccoli and zucchini with oil, salt and pepper; arrange in a single layer around salmon. Bake until salmon just begins to flake easily with a fork and vegetables are crisp-tender, 20-25 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, transfer reserved marinade to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half, 10-12 minutes. Serve salmon and vegetables with sauce and, if desired, rice. Top with remaining 1/4 cup green onions and 1 tablespoon sesame seeds.
