How to make Glazed Salmon in the Oven:

First, place 6-ounce salmon fillets on a parchment-lined baking sheet (or in a casserole dish). I used 4 fillets here, but you’ll have enough glaze for 6 or 8 fillets, if necessary.

Pat the fish dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper.

How do you make baked salmon glaze?

This easy honey glaze for the baked salmon comes together with just a handful of basic ingredients — most of which you probably already have in your pantry!

You’ll need soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, orange juice, garlic powder, and of course — honey.

Whisk them all together and your prep work is basically done! I’m telling you — 5 minutes is all you need!

Baste the glaze on the salmon and then set aside the rest of the glaze to use later.

The glazed salmon roasts in a 450 degree F oven for about 10-12 minutes. I like to baste with the remaining sauce about halfway through for even more flavor.
