  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 4 salmon filets 6 oz each
  • Kosher salt and ground pepper to taste

For the sauce

  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos or low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sriracha sauce
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 ½ tsp cornstarch
  • Chopped parsley to garnish
  • Lemon wedges to serve


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Season the salmon with smoked paprika, salt, and pepper on both sides.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes per side, or until nicely seared and flaky. Set aside.
  • To the same preheated skillet, add the oil and the garlic. Saute just until fragrant.
  • Next, stir in the honey, coconut aminos, sriracha, lemon juice, cornstarch and mix well to combine. Cook over medium heat for 1 minute then return the salmon to the skillet, basting the sauce all over it. Cook for 2-3 minutes more, or until the salmon is heated.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve immediately with lemon wedges.


  • Salmon filets can be skinless or with skin. If you are using skin-on salmon, cook with the skin down first.
  • Coconut aminos are usually used in place of soy sauce. You may use low-sodium soy sauce if preferred. 
  • We prefer that you use honey instead of maple syrup. But you may use maple syrup if preferred.
  • If you prefer a less spicy sauce, cut down the sriracha to 1 tsp instead of a tablespoon.
