Sweet Broiled Salmon

This is a fast, fresh, and easy recipe for parents to make at home for dinner, and then "makeover" the leftovers for a school lunch the next day by adding the salmon to sliced cucumber and topping with sesame seeds — it’s even a great idea to let your children sprinkle the sesame seeds on the salmon, so they can feel they were part of the process and be more likely to eat what "they" made.

Deliver Ingredients


  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 Teaspoons minced ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar or cider vinegar
  • 4 salmon fillets, skinned
  • Toasted sesame seeds, to taste


Turn on the oven broiler. Place the honey, soy sauce, ginger, and vinegar in a bowl and whisk to combine. Place the salmon fillets in a zip-lock bag and pour in the marinade. Marinate for 15 minutes.

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, place the fillets on the cookie sheet, and broil 4-6 inches from the heat for 7-9 minutes. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve.

Salmon Shopping Tip

A fresh fish should not smell fishy nor have milky, opaque eyes; it should have bright red gills, firm flesh, and a tight anal cavity.

Salmon Cooking Tip

Whole fish should be stored upright in ice in the refrigerator.

Salmon Wine Pairing

Pinot gris/grigio, sauvignon blanc, sémillon, albariño, or rosé with most cooked salmon dishes; pinot noir with salmon in red wine or other strong sauce; grüner veltliner, rosé, or vintage or non-vintage champagne or sparkling wine with smoked salmon.
