Who is ready for another easy, but delicious meal? I know I am! This recipe is, once again, simple and perfect for a quick meal on a busy weeknight! It is also super healthy because salmon is one of the best fishes out there you can eat! I add just a tiny bit of honey just to add some more sweetness and flavor. My family and I make this meal all the time. We just cannot get enough of it!
I am very picky when it comes to fish. Although I have been fishing and eating my own catches since I was in diapers, I was picky then, and I am picky now. This is one recipe I don’t have to be picky about because the flavors are just so delicious. Without added flavors, salmon can be very bland. The flavors the honey and spices add are just so insane. The walnut also adds another texture, a little crunch to the dish.
This dish needs to be cooked in the appropriate dish for it to be successful. A casserole dish is required. This size depends on the size of the fillet you are baking. The casserole dish helps keep all of the juices that form on the bottom which help flavor the fish better.
I had a fishing pole in my hand for the first time when I was about 8 months old. My Dad was determined to make sure I knew how to fish. As I grew older, I decided it was important to not only to catch the fish, but to learn how to cook them too. My go to was always coating the fish in Panko bread crumbs and frying it. Always delicious. But, we knew we needed a healthy alternative that we liked just as much.
My Dad and I are very similar in the fact we both love to experiment with different flavors in the kitchen. This recipe came very naturally. Over time, we have altered it in different ways and at this point, it is pretty much to perfection.
This recipe is delicious, succulent, and has amazing texture. I highly suggest bringing this meal to your kitchen table.
- 1 Fillet of Steelhead Salmon
- 1 tbsp creamed honey with lemon (or regular honey)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp Jamaican Jerk Seasoning
- 1 tsp olive oil
- ¼ cup chopped walnuts
- Turn the oven onto low broil.
- Coat the bottom of the casserole dish with olive oil. This helps the fish to not stick to the bottom. This is not for eating purposes since you will not eat the skin, but it allows for an easy clean up.
- Lay fillet of fish on top of olive oil.
- Spread garlic powder and Jamaican Jerk seasoning on the top of fish, evenly coating.
- Measure honey and drizzle on top. Do not spread the honey or it will melt off the fish while baking.
- Spread walnuts on top of the honey. This helps keep the honey in place while baking.
- Cook on low broil for 15 mins.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 5 mins.
