How to Bake Salmon in a Stasher Bag

With all of the holiday baking hullabaloo that has begun, I know that I’ve been on the lookout for quick, delicious, and healthy dinner recipes. Enter: baked salmon with a honey clove balsamic glaze! This salmon is so simple to throw together and super delicious. It’s a little sweet, a little tangy, with just a hint of spice from ground cloves. Roasting the salmon inside of a stasher bag keeps the fish perfectly moist! Be sure to grab fresh, wild-caught salmon if you can. It has a gorgeous deep reddish/pink color and is much more sustainably raised - and more nutrient dense, too!

Roasted Salmon with Honey Clove Balsamic Glaze

(Serves 2)


  • 8 oz fresh, wild-caught salmon
  • Salt and pepper
  • ¼ c balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ t ground cloves
  • 2 T raw honey


  1. Preheat oven to 375.

  2. Rinse salmon with very cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Place salmon inside of a stasher and leave the bag partially open to vent. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the fish is cooked through and the juices run clear. Take out of the oven and let rest. * handle with care; stasher bag will be hot*

  4. To prepare the glaze, heat vinegar, cloves, and honey over the stove in a small pot on medium heat. Bring to a simmer and, stirring constantly, let it simmer for 5-10 minutes. The glaze should thicken, and will continue to thicken as it cools. Drizzle over baked salmon and serve!
