Honey-Glazed Sativa Salmon
Cannabis product: Baked Edibles Organic Honey Tincture
Start to finish: 50 minutes (active: 10 minutes)
Yields: 1 serving
Approximate dosage: 10mg THC per serving
- 2 salmon fillets, skin removed
- ½ cup honey
- 2 teaspoons Baked Edibles Organic Honey Tincture
- ⅓ cup reduced sodium soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon minced ginger
- Sesame seeds
- Preheat your oven to 350°F.
- In a bowl, whisk together the infused honey, regular honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. Set aside.
- Place your salmon fillets in a large zip-lock bag and pour in half of the honey sauce mixture. Seal the bag and lightly shake to ensure the salmon fillets are coated thoroughly. Place in the refrigerator and let sit for 20 minutes.
- Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, take the fillets out of the zip-lock bag, and carefully place them on the baking sheet. Transfer to oven and bake for 20 minutes.
- While the salmon cooks, pour the unused portion of the honey sauce into a small saucepan and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit until glaze thickens.
- When the salmon is done, slowly pour your thickened honey glaze over top and garnish with a pinch of sesame seeds.
Pro tip: Serve this dish with a side of cooked vegetables, such as asparagus, broccoli, or carrots, for added nutritional benefits.

*Note: The amounts of cannabis products specified in these recipes is a very loose suggestion; the actual amounts you use should be modified based on the strength of your cannabis products and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky (click here to learn why), so the best way to test for potency is to start with one portion of a serving, wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis.
