Gingered Honey Salmon Recipe

Gingered Honey Salmon Recipe

Ginger, garlic powder and green onion blend nicely in an easy marinade that gives pleasant flavor to salmon. We also like to use this versatile mixture when grilling chicken, but we've found it tastes even better when marinated in the fridge overnight. —Dan Strumberger, Farmington, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 salmon fillet (1-1/2 pounds and 3/4 inch thick)


  • 1. For marinade, mix first six ingredients. In a shallow bowl, combine salmon and 2/3 cup marinade; refrigerate 30 minutes, turning occasionally. Reserve remaining marinade for basting.
  • 2. Place salmon on an oiled grill rack over medium heat, skin side down; discard marinade remaining in bowl. Grill salmon, covered, until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 15-18 minutes, basting with reserved marinade during the last 5 minutes. Yield: 6 servings.

Recipe Note

Health Tip: Everyone thinks of omega-3’s when it comes to salmon, but it’s also a good source of most B vitamins, which are important in energy production.

"Delicious salmon recipe! My whole family loved this dish. I broiled the fish, rather than grilling it. Also, I used cilantro in place of green onion."

"Really delicious. I used pineapple juice instead of orange juice. I might try to use reduced sodium soy sauce next time, however."

"Wow!!! This was excellent. Used it on 1 1/2 pounds of salmon fillets and marinated them overnight. The only thing I didn't have was the green onions, but nobody seemed to miss them.Will definitely use this very tasty, super simple recipe again."
