180 calories/serving


240 g salmon fillet
2 tbsp honey, liquid 45 g
1 tbsp soy sauce 15 mL
1 tsp olive oil 5 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
resealable plastic bag

Before you start

The fish can be cooked either in a grooved pan on the stovetop or using an outdoor grill.

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Cut the salmon fillet into similarly sized pieces, as per the number of servings required, then put them in a resealable plastic bag. Add the honey and soy sauce, then mix well. Let marinate 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Place the fish on an oiled, hot grill, then cook 8 to 10 min, depending on thickness of the fillet pieces, turning them once. Alternatively, heat the oil in a grooved thick-bottom pan. When hot, add the fish, then cook 4-5 min per side, turning the pieces once. It is important to check with a fork to see if the fish is cooked through.
  3. Season with salt and pepper, then serve on the warmed plates.


If desired, you may prepare some extra marinade, mix it with olive oil and obtain a "vinaigrette" which is then drizzled over the fish on the serving plates.

Very nice flavour. We baked it, makes for a juicier filet that isn't dried out at all. We usually do our salmon with maple but this will also be on the menu now.

I make a version of this with sesame oil instead of olive, and it's DELICIOUS. Just a suggestion for how to kick it up a notch!

I think I cooked the salmon a little too long over the grill, but I didn't have as much flavor as I had hoped. Next time I might just bake it.
