This sticky soy salmon can be either baked or fried, and enjoyed either hot or cold.

This dish is big on flavours, packed with protein and easy on the tummy. Make a double batch of glaze in advance and keep in a jar in the fridge for few days; it's just as good with chicken or can be used as a stir-fry sauce.

Serve with rice, cooked according to packet instructions, or a fresh salad.


  • Salmon fillets
For the glaze
  • Soy sauce
    2 tbsp
  • Runny honey
    1½ tbsp
  • Juice from ½ an orange
  • White wine vinegar
    1 tbsp
  • Garlic clove, peeled
  • Ginger, fresh
    ½ cm slice

Cooking Method

  1. Place all the ingredients for the glaze into a small pan and gently simmer until reduced by a third and having the consistency of runny honey. Discard the garlic and ginger slice.
  2. Line a roasting tin with greaseproof paper and lightly oil. Place the salmon skin-side down and spoon the glaze over.
  3. Roast at 200°C fan/gas mark 6 for 12-15 minutes. Alternatively fry in a little oil over a medium heat for two to three minutes each side. Pour the glaze over halfway through cooking the second side.
  4. Once cooked, use a fish slice to lift the salmon off the skin, leaving it stuck to the paper, and serve.
