We love salmon, it has so many health benefits and it's so easy to prepare. And this recipe is one of our favorites, it's sweet and garlicky and really showcases how easy it is to broil salmon!
- Brown sugar.
- Soy sauce.
- Salmon - buy enough to try our Slow Roasted Chipotle Salmon or our Five Spice Honey Glazed Salmon.
That's it! You could easily add a little minced ginger or some red pepper flakes.
Step by step instructions.
Preheat your broiler and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line it with foil.
In a small bowl combine brown sugar, soy sauce, honey and garlic. Microwave on high for 30 seconds, stir and microwave for 30 more seconds.
Place salmon filets on baking sheet and brush with sauce mixture.
Broil for 8 minutes or until salmon flakes easily. Occasionally baste with remaining sauce. I like to reserve a few spoons of the sauce to pour over for serving.
How easy was that?! As I mentioned earlier, this is such a quick salmon glaze and so easy to modify! You could easily add a little ginger, or lemongrass, or chopped chili.
Broiling salmon is so quick and easy, it's one of my favorite ways to cook it!

Definitely using this recipe next week. My only problem is what do I serve with it?
Pam Greer says
I would recommend my sesame ginger rice or coconut cilantro rice.
What temp you have the broiler set at
Pam Greer says
I usually set mine at high.
Easy and delicious! This may be one of the best recipes I've tried. I was worried about the salmon not having enough flavor but it was amazing! Basting several times while baking is key.
Never thought of adding brown sugar and now I'm hooked! It tastes wonderful and perfect in every bite
I have never tried making a brown sugar honey salmon. What a great idea! I have some salmon on hand, so will have to give this recipe a try!
We try to eat fish once a week. Gotta try this for our next fish day.
This salmon was perfect for a busy weeknight dinner!
