Salmon is my go-to fish, are fantastic sources of DHA, the omega-3 fatty acid that is essential for brain development. I rotate through all my salmon recipes, some of my favorites are Maple Soy Glazed Salmon, Healthy Salmon Quinoa Burgers, Seattle Asian Salmon Bowls, and Gochujang Glazed Salmon, just to name a few!

I’ll take wild salmon over farmed any day, preferably Alaskan. I usually get disappointed when I order out because I know I can make it better. The reasons are, they usually overcook it, and many restaurants don’t have wild salmon as an option. This makes all, and I mean ALL, the difference in quality, taste and the health benefits.

Honey-Teriyaki Salmon Tips:

  • You can marinate this for 10 minutes, or as long as 8 hours.
  • If using frozen salmon, thaw in the refrigerator the night before.
  • Always buy salmon from your trusted fishmonger. It’s best to buy it fresh and freeze yourself.

  1. This was just delicious! The asparagus was just right when the salmon was done; we like it a little bit crunchy. And the marinade / glaze just topped it off. I will definitely be making this again. Another great recipe, Gina…thank you!!

  2. Hi! Love your skinnytaste recipes! 😊 I’m on WW. I have a question, not sure if I’m doing something wrong when calculating points but I always get higher blue points than what you have listed on your recipes.. I add the nutritional information under my foods and points do not match yours. I also tried adding the recipe under my food recipes and points do not match yours? I always get something higher -_-

    1. The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”) which does not count fruits and vegetables in recipes in the calculations as they are now 0 points.

      The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting the fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, now you know why.

  3. Great flavors and super easy. My only complaint is that the 10-12 minutes it takes to cook the salmon is not nearly enough to properly cook the asparagus. Would recommend putting the asparagus in for 8-10 minutes without the salmon, then add the salmon for 6-8 minutes (since the dish will already be hot.

  4. We loved it! The marinade/glaze would be excellent on chicken or steak as well. Thanks for this one, I will definitely make this again.

  5. This dish is incredible – restaurant quality!! I marinated the salmon for 11 hours and then grilled it over a wood fire (Big Green Egg). The glaze tied the whole dish together perfectly. Thank you so much!!

  6. I LOVE this recipe! It’s got me eating healthy salmon again! I just put the remaining sauce in the microwave to heat it up instead of pulling out another pot. It’s super fast & tasty serving with some frozen Asian vegetables. I just throw them on the pan with the salmon. Super quick and delicious!!

  7. For me this marinade fell flat, too sweet and not enough depth. Maybe it’s worth trying again to see if I failed the first run.

  8. When I enter this into weight watchers app recipe builder it comes up with a lot more points.  Why is this? I used the exact ingredients you have and serving size.  Is it because you won’t actually use all the marinade (which makes up most of the points)?

  9. Omg….. This was delicious. I made it last night for my boyfriend and me, and we both looooved it. I brought leftovers for lunch and it was just as yummy (I didn’t warm it up). I’m not the BIGGEST salmon person and was slightly hesitant. But I love anything ‘teriyaki’ so I thought I would try it. And I’m so glad I did. Definitely plan on making this recipe again 🙂
