If you’re a fan of salmon, there aren’t too many recipes that do the fish justice like our Sweet and Tangy Oven Baked Salmon. Sure it’s not a weekly recipe, but it’s one we enjoy treating ourselves with.

Remember, you can add toasted sesame seeds on top, which you can toast in a pan just before tossing them on your salmon. This isn’t necessary, but it does give a crunchy edge.

  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. While this is happening line your baking sheet with foil. When this is done cut four squares of foil out that will be big enough for your salmon fillets to fit inside.

  2. In a bowl combine honey, soy sauce, orange juice, rice vinegar, sesame oil, ginger and garlic. Whisk until well combined.

  3. Lay the salmon fillets down on the baking sheet in their own foil square, with the skin facing down.

  4. Using a brush, or a spoon, cover each of the salmon fillets with your glaze, spreading it evenly across all four. Once this is done wrap each fillet up in it's own foil square, sealing it closed.

  5. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through. Depending on your taste, this may vary.

  6. When the salmon is cooked through take a moment to open the foil and baste the sauce over the fillet again. Then put back in the oven, still open, to allow it to chrisp for a few minutes.

  7. Serve with your choice of vegetables or rice, and top with coriander or sesame seeds, as per your preference.
