Laquered honey salmon

Combine the rich flavours of salmon with a sweet and savoury glaze
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15-20 minutes
  • Total Time: 25-30 minutes
  • 4 salmon fillets (approximately 150g each)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Lacquer:

  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes (adjust to your spice preference)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 200°C (180°C fan) or 400°F (350°F fan). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it to prevent the salmon from sticking.
  2. Prepare the Lacquer: In a small saucepan, combine the honey, soy sauce, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, grated ginger, and chilli flakes. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat and set it aside.
  3. Season the Salmon: Place the salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet. Brush them with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Apply the Lacquer: Brush the lacquer generously over the salmon fillets, ensuring they are well coated.
  5. Bake the Salmon: Place the baking sheet with the salmon in the preheated oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. The lacquer should have caramelised and created a glossy finish on the salmon.
  6. Serve: Once the salmon is done, remove it from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes. Serve the lacquered salmon hot, garnished with fresh herbs or sesame seeds if desired.
