Honey Jerk Salmon

Amazing honey jerk salmon!

I doubt there is anyone in this world who loves salmon more than I do. My favorite way eat salmon is with jerk seasoning and done in the oven. The flavor is amazing and the omega 3 fatty acids in salmon are excellent for your health. Now I know jerk seasoning can be quite spicy for those who aren’t accustomed to spicy food so I developed this recipe as a way to tone down the heat while still retaining all of the flavor. Trust me, this sweet & spicy salmon is a must try!


1.5 lb of salmon filets

1 tsp of all purpose seasoning

1 tsp of seafood seasoning (old bay is fine)

1 tsp of dry jerk seasoning

2 tbsp of wet jerk seasoning

For the sauce:

1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp of finely chopped red onion

1 tbsp bbq sauce (i prefer sweet baby rays)

2 tbsp honey

1 tbsp minced garlic

2 tsp water

2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. You may want to bake your salmon on a baking tray or in a large dish. Start by adding the all purpose, seafood, and jerk seasoning (both wet and dry) to the salmon and massaging it in. Allow your salmon to marinate for approx 30 minutes. Now place it in the oven and bake for 20 minutes uncovered. Once the time is done, remove it and set it to the side. You’ll make your sauce and pour it on top of the salmon. In a small sauce pan, heat your oil for 2 minutes. Add the onion and minced garlic, and sauteé for 1 minute. Next, add your bbq sauce, honey, water, and stir for another minute. Now add your parsley. Quickly stir for a few seconds and pour it on top. Place it back into the oven uncovered for another 5 minutes and remove. Enjoy!

Salmon Fried Rice

Salmon Fried Rice

I couldn’t get enough fried rice while in Thailand, as nearly every meal consisted of some kind of fried rice or noodle. After a long day in the sweltering heat feeding elephants in the elephant sanctuary of Kanchanburi, we sat down for a lovely meal prepared by a local restaurant. The meal was served buffet style and the basil salmon fried rice was the only dish I went back for seconds to try! I knew then that I’d figure out a way to recreate this dish as well! Hope you enjoy!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 1 hour


For the rice:
2 cups of cooked parboiled rice
2 tbsp corn oil
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/4 green pepper diced
1/4 red pepper diced
1/4 yellow pepper diced
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp all purpose seasoning
1 tsp old bay seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
3 kaffir lime leaves
1 tbsp browning
3 basil leaves
For the salmon:
4 salmon filets
Season each with:
1 tsp ground lemon grass seasoning
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp chili paste (optional)
1 tsp all purpose seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp fish seasoning


First cook your parboiled rice and set to the side. Next, grill your salmon for 15 minutes or roast in the oven. When finished, set to the side. Use one salmon filet, and shred or break into small pieces with your hands and set aside. In a large frying pan or wok, set your fire to medium heat. Sautee your onions and peppers, and kaffir lime leaves for 1-2 minutes. Add seasonings and sautee for another 2 minutes. Add your shredded salmon next. Sautee for 1 minute and add rice. Continue to stir and add basil leaves. Lastly, add browning and stir until color is evenly distributed. Enjoy!
