This Cranberry Honey Glazed Salmon is simple yet impressive, and tastes absolutely divine!! It’s zesty, sweet, savory, and flaky. It comes together in about 30 minutes.
I hope you had a WONDERFUL Christmas day! We had a great time. Our home was full with family and friend, and when I say full, I mean FULL. At first, I thought of setting up the food buffet-style, but my husband wanted a sit-down meal, so we had to buy some extra chairs and an extension to our dinner table. To make a long story short, everything worked out fantastic.
Confession time: This of being a multicultural family is exhausting! We had Portuguese, Venezuelan, and of course, American food. And even thought, I had a lot of help from my relatives, I still feel like I just ran a cooking marathon.
I am looking forward for a more relaxed menu for New Year Eve!
And this Cranberry Honey Glazed Salmon totally fits the bill. Easy and quick to make, and most importantly, full of flavor in every bite.
This Cranberry Honey Glazed Salmon comes together in about 30 minutes; it’s zesty, sweet, savory, and flaky.
We eat plenty of salmon around here, It’s not only super easy to prepare, but it’s also healthy and flavorful. This particular glazed is our favorite. The bourbon and cranberry juice provides a delicious tang that balances out the sweetness of honey. A bit of Paprika amps up the flavor profile, adding an irresistible smoky touch.

- 4 pound salmon fillets about 1
- Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
- ½ cup fresh cranberries optional
- Dill to garnish optional
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup cranberry juice
- 2 tablespoon bourbon optional
- 1 teaspoon smoked Paprika
- 2 garlic gloves minced
In a small bowl whisk together the honey, soy sauce, cranberry juice, bourbon (if using), paprika, and garlic.
Place the salmon filets in a large zipped-top bag. Pour half of this sauce over the salmon filets, coating them thoroughly. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or up to 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Remove salmon fillets from the marinate and place them in the prepared baking sheet. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Do not discard the marinate.
Bake for 10 – 15 minutes, or until completely cooked through.
Meanwhile prepare the glaze: Place the remaining marinade and fresh cranberries (if using) into a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat low-medium and allow to simmer for 5 - 8 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced into a glaze.
Remove salmon from oven and drizzle the glaze over the salmon.
Garnish with dill and serve.
