Ingredients That You’ll Need:

  • Salmon: Fresh or frozen; If you’re using frozen, be sure to defrost it according to the package directions first. Sockeye salmon is another favorite of mine (though I did use Atlantic salmon in this pioneer woman honey soy salmon recipe and it was delicious).
  • Garlic: Helps to add flavor! I wouldn’t use garlic powder — fresh garlic is best.
  • Soy sauce: If you like, you may use tamari or coconut aminos instead. If you use coconut aminos, cut the quantity of honey in half since coconut aminos are naturally sweet.
  • Honey: No substitutions!
  • Sesame oil: Use toasted sesame oil, which has a much stronger taste than plain sesame oil.
  • Cornstarch: Alternatively, arrowroot will help thicken the marinade after it’s put into the pan.
  • Green onion: For garnish.
