Rebekah's Honey Paprika Salmon

Rebekah's Honey Paprika Salmon

Easy yet delicious meals are just the best. Fish is one of those ingredients that always seem to get the job done. This recipe comes from Rebekah from Oregon and my entire family absolutely loved the taste. I also loved that this recipe calls for honey which caramelized the salmon so perfectly. I served this with some buttery orzo and roasted beets.  


  • 1 whole salmon filet (1.5 to 2lbs)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon black ground pepper
  • Pinch of cinnamon 
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. In a saucepan on medium heat combine honey, olive oil, paprika, salt, garlic powder, black pepper, cinnamon and cayenne pepper. Stir until all ingredients are well mixed. 
  3. Rinse and pat dry the salmon.
  4. Place salmon on the prepared baking sheet. Pour the honey mixture over the salmon slowly until it is well coated. 
  5. Place the salmon in the oven for 20 minutes. (This depends on the size of you salmon filet) Keep an eye on the salmon because you will not want to overcook.
  6. Serve warm. 

Tips from Rebekah:

  • When laying out the fish on the parchment- tuck in any thin side under the filet so that the filet bakes evenly.  
  • When cooking the salmon the honey on the parchment paper will probably burn. Don't worry! The honey on the fish will be caramelizing. 
  • Test the fish with a fork- if it flakes easily the fish is ready. 
  • Serve hot with a little flaky salt on top.


This is such a great recipe and I am thrilled to have it stored safely in my Recipe Rolodex! I am so grateful to Rebekah for sharing her recipe and if you have a recipe to share please email us and share a recipe on the Ranch Recipe Rolodex.
