Sweet & Spicy Salmon Marinade Recipe – Flavour Packed & Healthy


-300-400g salmon fillets (2 salmon fillets)

-2 tbsp honey

-1.5-2 cloves of garlic, minced

-1 tbsp soy sauce

-1/2 tbsp rice vinegar

-1/2 tbsp sesame oil

-1/2 tbsp ginger, grated

-1 tsp Sriracha sauce

-dash of pepper

-2 shallots, sliced

-sesame seeds, optional

-boiled/steamed veggies of your choice (I like zucchini & carrots)


  1. In a small mixing bowl, mix honey, garlic, ginger, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, Sriracha and pepper until well combined.
  2. Add half the shallots to marinade and stir.
  3. Place salmon in a snap lock bag, large container or bowl. Tip marinade mix over the salmon pieces and ensure they are fully coated.
  4. Seal the bag/container/bowl and allow to chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Best 1-2 hours.
  5. One salmon has been soaked in the marinade long enough, remove from the fridge.
  6. Heat a frypan with some olive oil on low-medium heat.
  7. Cook salmon for a few minutes then flip and repeat.
  8. Serve the salmon over boiled rice and veggies. Drizzle with left over marinade from the pan and top with extra shallots and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
