Servings: 2


1/2 pound Atlantic Salmon

For the marinade:
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons red chilli oil (can substitute with olive oil and red pepper flakes)
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ginger, minced
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
salt and crushed black pepper to taste


I bought 1 pound of cleaned Atlantic salmon, with skin on. For this dish, I cut the filet in two, saving the rest for another meal. 

Preheat the oven to 375F. Lightly clean the salmon with water, patting it dry. 

In a small bowl, whisk the honey, soy sauce, chilli oil, mustard, ginger, garlic, vinegar, salt, and black pepper. 

Line a baking sheet with foil and place the clean salmon, folding up the 4 sides of the foil to avoid spillage. Pour the marinade over the salmon. Fold the sides of the foil over the salmon, sealing the top and sides, completely covering the fish. Make sure that the salmon filet is flat and that the fish is immersed in the mustard and soy mixture. 

Bake in the oven at 375F for 20 minutes. After, open the foil, exposing the filet top. Broil for 3-5 minutes until caramelized and sauce has browned. 

Serve immediately and enjoy! 

Note: Serve with a side of sautéed spring beans in olive oil, soy sauce, and chopped garlic.

Preparation Time :
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Inactive Prep: 30-40 minutes
Cook Time: 10-15 minutes

Servings :

Ingredients :

For marinating the fish:
1 whole Bronzini fish (approx 2-3 pounds) sea salt black pepper
1 inch ginger sliced
½ scallion chopped
½ cup cooking wine
¼ teaspoon salt seasoning

To saute the fish:
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
½ teaspoon red pepper corn

For the Sauce:
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
½ scallion
1 ½-2 tablespoons garlic red chilli sauce
4 tablespoons soy sauce
¼ cup cooking wine
½ cup chicken stock
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar salt and pepper to taste

Directions :

First, clean the whole Bronzini fish. Take a knife and cut slits into the fish. Repeat on the other side of the fish. Into each slit, put 1or 2 slices of ginger, sea salt, and black pepper. Open the fish and add the salt, pepper, and ginger inside too.
Place the fish in a marinating pan and put ½ of a chopped scallion, the cooking wine, and the seasoning salt. Set aside to marinade for 30-40 minutes.

After the fish has been marinated, its ready to saute the fish. Heat a skillet and coat the bottom with 2 tablespoons oil and the red pepper corn. Add the fish and cook for a couple minutes on each side till it turns to a light brown color. Take the fish out and keep aside.

Coat the bottom of the pan with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Add the ½ chopped scallion and cook. After 2 minutes add the red chilli sauce and cook till hot. Then add the soy sauce, cooking wine, chicken stock, vinegar, and sugar. Cook the sauce until the sauce turns thick and hot.

Add the fish to the sauce and cook. Cover the pan with a lid until the side of the fish cooks and then turn over for the other side of the fish. Add a little bit of salt and pepper to taste.

Be careful about the bones in the Bronzini fish, as you do not want to eat them.
Serve the fish with the delicious hot and sweet sauce and enjoy!
