Always a hit in my family, there is never a protest from anyone when I make salmon this way. I like using ponzu sauce (think citrus flavored soy sauce) but you can easily use soy sauce instead.

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1/4 cup ponzu sauce OR soy sauce
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp mustard (I like whole grain)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Ground pepper
  • Cilantro leaves, for garnish
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the ponzu/soy sauce and ginger garlic and bring to a simmer.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the honey and mustard and set the glaze aside.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a large, ovenproof skillet.
  5. Season the salmon with pepper and add it to the skillet, skinned side up.
  6. Cook over high heat till the skin is crispy, approx 4 minutes. If you are using skinned fillets, cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  7. Turn the salmon over and spoon the glaze on top.
  8. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake the salmon for about 5 minutes or until cooked through.
  9. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fish onto plates and garnish with the cilantro before serving.
