Total Time:
15 mins


  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • Four 6-ounce skinless salmon fillets

  • Freshly ground pepper

  • Cilantro leaves, for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce and ginger and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir in the honey and mustard.

  2. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick ovenproof skillet. Season the salmon with pepper and add it to the skillet, skinned side up. Cook over high heat until golden and crusty, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn the salmon and spoon the ginger-soy glaze on top. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake the salmon for 5 minutes, or until cooked through. Using a slotted spatula, transfer the salmon fillets to plates, garnish with the cilantro and serve.
