Honey Garlic Salmon

Honey Garlic Salmon

Garlicky, sweet and sticky. This recipe only takes 15 minutes and serves 3.

INGREDIENTS

  • 12 oz (340g) salmon, cut into 2-3 fillet strips
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon warm water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 lemon, sliced into wedges
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Season the surface of the salmon with salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Set aside, in the fridge is better.
  2. Mix the honey, water, apple cider vinegar or lemon juice and a pinch of salt together. Stir to combine well.
  3. Heat up an oven-safe skillet (cast-iron skillet preferred) on high heat. Add the olive oil. Pan-fry the salmon, skin side down first, for about 1 minute. Turn the salmon over and cook for 1 minute. Turn it over again so the skin side is at the bottom.
  4. Add the garlic into the pan, saute until slightly browned. Add the honey mixture and lemon wedges into the skillet, reduce the sauce until it’s sticky.
  5. Finish it off by broiling the salmon in the oven for 1 minute or until the surface becomes slightly charred (optional step).
  6. Top the salmon with parsley and serve immediately.

Feel free to double the sauce if you like your food saucy!
