Mom's Famous 3-Ingredient Teriyaki Honey Grilled Salmon Recipe Is Massaged for Extra Flavor

I love healthy salmon, but my mom's salmon recipe in particular. It's flavorful, moist and delicious both hot off the grill or leftover straight out of the fridge!

Serve this easy, three-ingredient salmon recipe with a salad and a fresh vegetable. The leftovers also make a flavorful salmon salad that can be eaten over lettuce or as a sandwich.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 2 to 3 hours to marinate
Cook Time: 6 to 8 minutes
Total Time: 2 to 3 hours
Servings: 4


Here's how to make it:

  1. Place the salmon in a ziplock bag and add the marinade and orange juice. Zip the bag and massage together. Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours. Periodically, flip the salmon in the marinade and massage the marinade into the fish. (Mom calls this "wicking in.")
  2. Remove the fish from the marinade and place on a hot grill. Salt to taste. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Peek at the bottom and if there are grill marks, flip over and cook another 3 to 4 minutes. The cooking time will depend on the thickness of the filet. Test the doneness by trying to flake off with a fork. 


  • A little undercooked is better than overcooked. Not only is overcooked salmon dry and less tasty, but the fish will also continue cooking after removed from the grill and become even more overcooked. As my mom advises, "If it's too raw, you're only eating sushi!"
  • You could also cook this salmon recipe is a skillet.
