Pepper Honey Baked Salmon

Served this salmon last night to Ray and TJ, they really enjoyed it.  I am always trying new salmon recipes as Ray loves salmon.  It’s a super easy recipe and very flavorful.

Prep time:  10 minutes

Cooking time: about 40 minutes-this includes time to cook fish and reduce sauce.

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

One salmon filet-36 ounces

1/4 cup pineapple juice

1/3 cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons white vinegar

2 tablespoons lemon juice

3/4 cup of honey

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Season salmon filet with salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Bring the pineapple juice, soy sauce, vinegar, lemon juice and honey to a simmer in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and stir in the sugar, black pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has reduced to a syrupy consistency, about 15 minutes. Set the sauce aside.

  3. Season the salmon with a light sprinkling of salt and pepper. Place the filet onto a parchment paper or foil lined baking sheet.  Brush a small amount of the sauce over the salmon filet, and throughout the cooking brush the salmon with the sauce a few times. Cook until the fish turns opaque in the center, 18-25 minutes, depending on the thickness of your salmon. Serve with the remaining sauce. I served with brown basmati rice and my roasted baby bell pepper recipe.
