Barbecue Glazed Salmon


  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each), skin-on or skinless
  • 1/3 cup BBQ sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley or green onions for garnish (optional)


  • Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil for easy cleanup.
  • Prepare the Glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together the BBQ sauce, honey, soy sauce, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, olive oil, and a pinch of black pepper.
  • Season the Salmon: Place the salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet. If using skin-on salmon, you can leave the skin on or remove it according to your preference. Season both sides of the salmon fillets lightly with salt and black pepper.
  • Brush with Glaze: Brush the prepared BBQ glaze generously over the top of each salmon fillet, ensuring they are well coated.
  • Bake the Salmon: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of your salmon fillets.
  • Broil to Caramelize (optional): If you want a caramelized finish on the glaze, after the salmon is cooked through, switch the oven to broil and broil for an additional 1-2 minutes, watching closely to prevent burning.
  • Serve: Once done, remove the salmon from the oven. Carefully transfer the salmon fillets to serving plates. Optionally, garnish with chopped fresh parsley or green onions for extra flavor and color.

Enjoy! Serve the BBQ glazed salmon hot with your favorite sides, such as steamed vegetables, rice, or a fresh salad.
