Asian Salmon Steaks


  • 3 Tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 (6 ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • minced cilantro for garnish, if desired


  1. Combine first five ingredients in a jar or bowl (w/ a lid); cover & shake well. Place salmon steaks/fillets in a glass dish. Spoon about 1 Tablespoon marinade over each steak. Refrigerate 10 to 30 minutes.
  2. To cook, remove salmon from marinade; discard marinade from dish. Place salmon on a lightly greased grill. Brush fish with some of the remaining marinade. Grill until fish is flaky to touch, turning once and basting (10 to 15 minutes total cooking time). If you would prefer to bake it in the oven, go with 375 degrees F. for about 20 minutes- or until the salmon is cooked through (you can bake it sitting in the marinade, and then spoon the marinade over the top to serve).
  3. Serve garnished with cilantro, if desired.

    This looked delish. Made wild caught on a cast iron grill pan (I recently made a different salmon recipe on the same pan last week without issue). It wasn’t looking cooked all the way though (dark pink center) so I cooked it until lighter pink. It was dried out. Was the dark pink okay? Advice welcomed.

      Salmon varies in color inside and out. Sometimes dark pink is okay, depending on the variety!
