This Honey and Pecan-Glazed Salmon is a great recipe for the whole family. We eat this healthy salmon recipe at least once every two weeks. Only 4 ingredients in this dinner! Even my family, who aren’t big into seafood and are picky eaters, love this dinner.

Honey and Pecan-Glazed Salmon

If you’re looking for an easy dinner that’s actually healthy, this easy salmon recipe is for you! Salmon is rich in nutrients and is supposed to improve brain function.


The marinade is made with three simple ingredients:

  • Salmon – fresh salmon is always best but Costco sells frozen salmon filets that I like too. Wild salmon has a fishier taste but is also a healthy protein option.
  • Honey – just a few tablespoons honey add enough sweetness to this dish.
  • Soy Sauce
  • Pecans

Stir the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl.

Let the salmon marinate in the honey mixture for at least 15 minutes. Then, place salmon filets in the baking dish

This sweet honey glaze works well with all types of fish. Salmon, tilapia, swordfish, halibut, or snapper would be great in this recipe.


Store leftover salmon in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two days.

This Pecan and Honey Glazed Salmon is so easy and so good. We eat this salmon at least onceevery twoweeks.


Prep Time: 10 minutes mins

Cook Time: 30 minutes mins

Total Time: 40 minutes mins

Servings: 4 servings


  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 teaspoons finely chopped pecans
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce, (for gluten-free use gluten-free soy sauce)
  • 4 (6 oz ) salmon fillets
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  • Combine honey, pecans, and soy sauce in a large zip-top bag. Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper; add to bag and seal. Marinate in refrigerator at least 15 minutes. I like to marinate mine all day so all that flavor gets infused.

  • Remove fish and nuts from bag, reserving marinade. Place fish on foil lined pan and top with nuts.

  • Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting fish twice with remaining glaze while baking.

    I make this at least once a week. I make extra marinade which I warm on the stove and drizzle on top of salmon for extra moisture. Yummy

    I can’t seem to save the honey and pecan glazed salmon to the recipe box I created on your site. Love your recipes. The hard part is trying to not make all of them the same day. Ugh! Where to begin! I need an app for my phone of your site so I can get to it faster!

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} Reply

      I fixed it! You should be able to save it now…

    Can this be made ahead & frozen?

    • Charlene Reply

      Oops. Nevermind. I see now that you can. I’m assuming you just throw everything in the one bag & freeze it until you are ready to bake it?

      • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} Reply

        That’s what I would do!
