The sides for this Honey Garlic Salmon Recipe:

So, I didn’t include the recipe for the sides that are in this Honey Garlic Salmon Recipe. Reason being is this amazing Salmon recipe is truly the highlight of this post. To make some sides, easily sautee any of your favorite veggies and serve this with a side of quinoa. You can also serve this over salad.

For this Honey Garlic Salmon Recipe, I served it with sauteed spinach with a side of sauteed mushroom, carrots and zucchini then topped with some sesame seeds.  When making the side spinach, I kept it simple with salt, pepper and olive oil. As for the other side, i sauteed shredded carrots, mushrooms, and zucchini with sesame oil, garlic powder, a bit of honey, salt, and pepper.

You can certainly be creative when making some sides for this amazing Salmon recipe. I am sure anything you make with this will turn out great.
