Slightly spicy, slightly sweet and absolutely delicious, this Honey Chipotle Salmon is making the weeknight rounds over here. So easy and so quick!

  • 1/4 cup (90g) Sue Bee's Honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground chipotle chili pepper*
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 individual salmon fillets (or a large 2 lb. fillet)
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together honey, chipotle chili pepper, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Place the salmon in a container, baking dish, or zipped-top bag. Brush or pour half of the marinade on top. Ensure that the glaze covers the entire pink surface of the salmon. Reserve the other half for brushing on the cooked salmon. I recommend marinating for at least 15 minutes or up to 8 hours.

  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350ºF. and place salmon on a lined baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes, depending on thickness (about 10 minutes per 1-inch thickness, measured from the thickest part of the fillet).**

  3. Once salmon is cooked, brush the warm salmon with remaining marinade before serving. Leftovers keep well in the refrigerator for a few days. Reheat to your liking.
Recipe Notes

*If you don't have chipotle chili pepper on hand, you can also use regular chili powder. **To grill salmon, fire up the grill to medium-high heat. You can grill the salmon on foil or on a cedar plank. Grill the salmon skin side down for 15 minutes (about 10 minutes per 1-inch inch thickness measured from the thickest part of the fillet) or until 145°F internal heat.
