Without a doubt, we recommend using our favorite Faroe Island Salmon, that is full of flavor with a truly unique supple, creamy texture. Due to it’s popular demand amongst our community, we generally have this available daily, but feel free to pre-order ahead of time by calling us at (781) 934-8167. In the theme of shopping local, the cranberries used in this recipe were from our good friends at Shoe String Bog Company in Carver.

Yields two servings
- Fresh Salmon (1 lb in two pieces)
- Fresh Cranberries (1 cup)
- Minced Garlic (1 tbs)
- Fresh Dill (for garnish)
- Honey (1/3 cup)
- Soy Sauce (1/3 cup – try low sodium for a healthier option)
- Cranberry Juice (1/4 cup – try low sugar for a healthier option)
- Paprika (1 tsp)
- Salt and Black Pepper (to taste)
**For the best results, you’ll want to marinate your salmon for about 30 minutes.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk the honey, soy sauce, and cranberry juice.
- Next, you’ll add the paprika and garlic before pouring over the salmon in a large Ziploc bag. Refrigerate for 15-30 mins.
- Then, preheat your oven to 400º and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Next, remove the salmon from the bag, place on the parchment paper, and set the remaining marinade aside. Finally, season the fish with salt and pepper before placing into the oven for approximately 10-12 minutes. (Please note the thickness of your salmon when baking, as thicker cuts may take longer then thinner, tail pieces.)
- Meanwhile, pour the remaining marinade and fresh cranberries into a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil before reducing the heat to low/medium. Then allow this mixture to simmer until it has reduced to a glaze and the cranberries are soft, about 6 minutes or so.
- Once your salmon is done, try plating over rice or spinach before drizzling the sauce over the top. Lastly, garnish with dill and enjoy!
