Note: Make sure to not overcook the salmon so it remains soft and tasty to bite.
Honey Glazed Garlic Salmon
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp red pepper flakes
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
4 to 6 oz salmon fillets, patted dry with a paper towel
Freshly ground black pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lemon, sliced into rounds
1. In a medium bowl, whisk together honey, soy sauce, lemon juice and red pepper flakes.
2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat two tablespoons oil. When oil is hot but not smoking, add salmon skin-side up and season with salt and pepper. Cook salmon until deeply golden, about 6 minutes, then flip over and add remaining tablespoon of oil.
3. Add garlic to the skillet and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the honey mixture and sliced lemons and cook until sauce is reduced by about 1/3. Baste salmon with the sauce.
4. Garnish with sliced lemon and serve.
