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


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


  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.
