Honey and Salmon,

This recipe is another great way to introduce your child to fish in their diet. Salmon supplies a great source of Omega- 3 minerals and essential fish oils to your body. Any type of Salmon will work in this recipe, ( Pink, Silver, Red, Copper, etc.) What will make this recipe your family favorite is the combination of the brown sugar breading and the honey glaze topping at the end. Even the pickiest eaters in your family can’t resist the combination of these sweet simple ingredients. If they don’t like fish, just tell them it’s Chicken! Give it a try and follow these steps:


Feeds a Family of 4

4 –   6- 8oz. Salmon Filets, (No bones, please)

1 – Container of Bread Crumbs (Seasoned is optional)

1 – Package of Brown Sugar (Light or Dark)

1 –  Stick of  Salted Butter



Oven, Pre-Heated at 390 Degrees F

Cookie Sheet, lightly greased with butter

Cooking Steps:

Your fish should be clean and dry. Place half of your Brown Sugar and Breadcrumbs into a shallow bowl, (50/50 ratio). You will be using this bowl to ‘dip’ your filets into the mixture, so make sure you have room for the fish n the bowl.Pre-Heat your Oven to 390 Degrees F.

Take a butter knife and scoop some softened butter onto the knife and spread across all sides of the fish filet. The butter should have a light coat all around the fish. Now, take the fish in your hand and drop into your bowl of breading. Make sure all sides of the fish are breaded. Do the same steps for as many fish filets as you have.

Take your cookie sheet and lightly grease the sheet with butter. Place your fish filets on the cookie sheet. Make sure you give each filet a little room between each other. Place fish into the oven to bake for 15 minutes, (18 minutes for filets thicker than 1.5 inch). Allow Fish to cool for 5 min. Take your honey and ‘drizzle’ the honey over the top of the filet. The warm fish should melt the honey and the filets will look ‘glazed’, like a glazed doughnut!

You can compliment this meal with rice or mashed potatoes and your favorite vegetable… Enjoy!
