Salmon is such an easy dish to make. Baked, stovetop, fried you name it, it’s a winner in my house. Combination of garlic, honey and soy sauce, gives the salmon such a light taste allowing the salmon to be moist, flaky and just perfect for a quick meal. Paired with a salad and potatoes it’s always a hit.
How to make Honey Garlic Salmon
This honey salmon recipe only has a handful of everyday ingredients: salmon, soy sauce, honey, garlic, lemon juice .
STEP ONE – Season the salmon pieces. Sear them over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes/side or until the salmon is just cooked through.
STEP TWO – You then take the fish out of the pan and add the sauce ingredients into the pan (lemon juice, soy sauce, honey, garlic). Cook until it’s thickened, add the fish back in, serve warm!
Honey Garlic Salmon Sauce
This salmon is all about the sauce, using simple ingredients from your pantry as – soy sauce, garlic, lemon, and honey. The sauce is cooked down in the salmon allowing it to caramelize, yummy!
For freshness, its always nice to add lemon juice and garnish with lemon slices or wedges. The lemon takes away the fishiness from the salmon and you could literally taste the difference. Salmon is a fishy fish so don’t think about leaving it out . I hope you try this recipe and if you do I hope you love it just as much as I did.
