If honey and garlic butter aren’t enough of a power pairing, I mixed both of those together along with beautiful Asian sesame flavours, and created the best honey sesame sauce thats gets baked all over this salmon! The juices of the salmon soak into the sauce to create one of the best salmon recipes I have on Cafe Delites! Super juicy and tender, the salmon falls apart on its own. Is there anything better?! NO!

First, you’re going to start by making the best Garlic Butter / Honey Sesame fusion you’ve ever tasted. Reserve 1/4 cup of it for later, and pour the rest of it all over your salmon.
I use wild caught because it’s healthier and safer to eat. I’d love to encourage you to do the same. The flavour is unbeatable when compared to farmed salmon.
Salmon is baked in it’s own foil packet, and broiled to caramelise, char and crisp the edges. Then you are going to pour the remaining sauce over it, and behold the flavour bomb that’s about to take place.
- I use regular soy sauce to add much needed saltiness to the sauce. You can use low sodium soy sauce if you wish, or replace it all together with coconut animos. If using regular soy, be careful not to go over board when seasoning your salmon.
- If you don’t have access to rice wine vinegar, you can use apple cider or regular white vinegar as alternatives — or leave it out.
- We find 2 teaspoons of Sriracha enough to give the sauce a subtle hint of heat. For a spicier sauce, add more to suit your taste! Or leave it out for a non-spicy version. (The chili flakes are also optional.)
Keep your eyes on the oven while your salmon is broiling. If your broiler is set too high, or if the salmon is placed too close to the broiler, the foil will burn.
