  • 12 oz wild-caught salmon filet skin-on
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon local honey
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 medium garlic clove peeled and chopped
  • 1 piece fresh ginger root about 1" size, peeled and chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • *optional: orange slices for garnish


  • Place all ingredients for the sauce in a mini food processor, or blender, and blend until smooth. 
  • Place salmon, skin side down, in a cast-iron skillet or baking dish seasoned with a little olive oil. Pour sauce over the fish, using a pastry brush to coat the top.  Top with a few orange slices, if desired.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes depending on the thickness of your filet.  Baste fish with sauce every 5 minutes or so and remove from the oven when it flakes easily with a fork and reaches an internal temperature of 135-140 degrees F.
