Soy Marinated Honey Wasabi Salmon
Sweet and heat, this one hits all the right notes with the umami flavors of soy, wasabi, and honey paired with incredible Wild Alaskan line-caught small-boat Catch Sitka Salmon.
We recommend getting your honey from our friends at Hollow Tree Honey who are on a mission to save the bees by providing, "always pure, never heated, coarse filtered so the honey retains all the good stuff."
This recipe is inspired by one my wonderful friend Kerri created when she helped welcome me to the Sitka way of life when I first arrived in 2006.
- 2 Fillets - Catch Sitka Seafoods Salmon (King, Coho, or Keta)
- 1/3 C - Soy Sauce - or - Coconut Aminos
- 2 Tbs. - Wasabi Paste - or - Wasabi Powder made into a paste - 4 tsp. powder mixed with 6 tsp. water
- 1 Tbs. - Hollow Tree Honey, more if you like more sweet than heat!
- Sesame Seeds, for sprinkling.
- Rinse salmon under cool running water and pat completely dry. Place salmon and soy sauce -or- coconut aminos into a resealable bag. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight or at least four hours.
- Preheat oven to 450.
- Remove salmon from marinade and place into a shallow baking dish. Spread wasabi paste on top and drizzle with honey.
- Bake for 12-18 minutes depending on species and thickness of the fillet until they reach 145 degrees. We recommend taking your salmon out at 135 or 140 degrees and allow the carryover cooking to do the rest of the work. Serve over rice with your favorite veggie side.*
