Honey Garlic Salmon Recipe
Seared salmon fillets drizzled with a simple yet flavorful 3-ingredient sauce.
- 4 salmon fillets approximately 4 ounces each
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 clove of garlic finely minced
Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large pan. Season the fillets generously with salt and pepper.
Place the fillets, flesh side down, into the pan. Cook for 5-6 minutes or until deep golden brown.
Flip the fillets and cook on the other side for 4-5 minutes more or until fish is just cooked through and easily flakes with a fork.
In a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce, honey, and garlic.
Drizzle the soy sauce mixture over the salmon and serve.
- Salmon filets: you may use skin on or skin off salmon filets. Fresh or frozen will work but if you can use fresh wild-caught salmon.
- Honey: this ingredient can be substituted with maple or brown sugar.
- Garlic: use fresh garlic as much as possible. Garlic powder will not yield the same flavors.
- Soy sauce: Use low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos.
