Applebee’s Honey Pepper Sauce for Salmon(Copycat)
This is a wonderful salmon recipe that we really enjoyed. We are not big on sauces that are too sweet so I made this as directed and then just added some extra garlic and cayenne to give it that added kick. It was very easy to make, healthy and had loads of flavour. To see more photos of this recipe or read more reviews please click here. I poured the sauce over my fillets rather than serving as a dipping sauce on the side.


3/4 Cup honey
1/3 Cup soy sauce
1/4 Cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/4 Cup pineapple juice
1 Lemon, juice of
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 Teaspoons olive oil
1 Teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 Teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 Teaspoon paprika
1/4 Teaspoon garlic powder
4 (8 ounce) Salmon fillets (skin removed)



1. Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Stir occasionally until sauce begins to boil, then lower heat to simmer and cook uncovered for 15 minutes or until syrupy. Watch the sauce closely to be sure it doesn’t bubble over.


1. Preheat barbecue grill to medium heat, or turn on broiler. Rub each salmon filet with olive oil, then lightly sprinkle salt and pepper over top.

3. Grill(or broil) the salmon for 4-7 minutes per side or until done.

Serve salmon with a small cup of the honey pepper sauce on the side. Enjoy!
