Honey Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon

  • Author: One Lovely Life
  • Yield: about 4 servings 1x


  • 4 (6oz) salmon fillets, thawed if frozen – I prefer wild-caught Alaska salmon
  • 3 Tbsp butter or ghee
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1/4c brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lemon Slices, to top
  • 34 Tbsp fresh herbs (chives, basil, cilantro, or parsley are nice).


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. In a small saucepan, combine butter/ghee, honey, brown sugar, and lemon juice and cook over medium heat until melted together and smooth. Stir in salt and taste. Adjust lemon juice or salt to taste.
  3. Place salmon on a baking sheet covered with foil. Brush salmon generously with honey glaze. Arrange lemon slices on top and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until cooked through, spooning the extra glaze on the foil back over the salmon. Sprinkle with fresh herbs, and additional salt and pepper.
  5. *If you cook one large piece (vs. fillets), you’ll need to add at least 5-10 minutes extra cooking time. Check it after 5 minutes and go from there.


Want a thicker glaze? This makes a TON of glaze, with plenty left on the pan to spoon over the finished salmon. If you want the glaze a bit thicker, you can add 1/2-1 tsp cornstarch or arrowroot to your glaze as it melts in the saucepan. Continue to cook until the mixture thickens slightly, then brush on the salmon as directed.
