This Baked Honey Garlic Salmon is flavored with the perfect balance of sweet and savory glaze using honey and garlic. Make it a meal by pairing it with some Garlic Bacon Sauteed Green Beans or Dill Fingerling Potato Salad.
Trying to eat more wholesome foods and manage and well-balanced diet can get really hard. I especially find it difficult this time of year. Foods that are overly indulgent, and rich are some of my specialties, but I am trying to venture into more wholesome cooking.
Salmon is Nutritious
Did you know that Salmon is rich in Vitamin D and Omega-3 fatty acids? It is a superfood that is super nutritious for our bodies.
My husband and I prefer wild-caught salmon which has a ruby red, thinner flesh than farm-raised. It is so easy to prepare, and taste amazing baked in the oven.
Sweet and Savory is Delicious!
Lately, I have been on a sweet and savory kick. I love the combination of honey and garlic so I decided to use a similar recipe I created for chicken wings on my salmon. It came out great!
Honey Garlic Baked Salmon is super amazing, juicy, and contains the absolute perfect flavor profile to complement the mild salmon.
Honey and garlic are also considered to be superfoods so this recipe provides a power-packed, tasty, nutritional boost.
How Long Does It Take to Make?
It took me no more than 30 minutes to prep and cook this fresh meal.
Sides for Honey Garlic Salmon
Salmon goes well with both cold and warm sides. You can pair it with a baked sweet potato or even a salad. This Warm Kale Salad with Bacon is the perfect compliment.

I started taking Nature Made a year ago and I now have a good habit of not missing it and I’ve added other vitamins to my routine. I’ve been trying to eat salmon so eventually I’ll love it

I had no idea that so many people were deficient in Vitamin D. I know I need to take more vitamins. I need to check out Nature made, and I need to try this salmon recipe. It sounds amazing!

I take supplements as well but probably not as many. Salmon has a lot of benefits and it’s definitely one of the best ingredients to use when you’re eating healthy!

This looks like a delicious meal. I love salmon. I’ve purchased several containers of Nature Made vitamins, but I haven’t tried the Vitamin D yet.
My Teen Guide says
I love Honey Garlic Salmon. We have this often and my family always asks for seconds! I am happy that they do not have any issues with eating fish and other seafood. A vitamin D supplement is also essential to maintain healthy skin, nails and hair, so that is also in our medicine cabinet.
IT is really important to keep your vitamins up, sometimes our levels certainly decrease during the winter. Glad you shared a yummy salmon recipe and supplements that will help us to remain healthier!
Bill Sweeney says
Salmon makes for a great meal! I like this version, with honey and garlic. I prefer more garlic than the rest of my family, so, more on my fillet!
That sounds delicious! Garlic makes anything better, and I love the added sweetness of the honey.
