Easy Honey Garlic Salmon

This Easy Honey Garlic Salmon is a throw together recipe in one pan and a perfect sweet and savoury 5-ingredient garlicky sauce with a hint of lemon!

Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 10 minutes
    •    Cook time: 10 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4


Ingredients

    •    1 tbsp water
    •    2 tbsps butter
    •    4 tbsps honey
    •    1/2 tsp paprika
    •    2 tsps soy sauce
    •    lemon wedges to serve
    •    salt and pepper, to season
    •    4 salmon fillets (about 250gm each)
    •    4 cloves garlic, finely chopped or minced
    •    1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice (plus extra to serve)


Method

  1. Arrange oven shelf to the middle of your oven. Preheat oven to broil/grill settings on medium heat.
  2. Season salmon with salt, pepper and paprika. Set aside.
  3. Heat the butter in a skillet or pan over medium-high heat until melted. Add the garlic and sauté for about a minute, until fragrant. Pour in the honey, water and soy sauce; allow the flavours to heat through and combine. Add in the lemon juice; stir well to combine all of the flavours together.
  4. Add the salmon steaks to the sauce in the pan; cook each fillet (skin-side down if there's any skin) for 3-4 minutes or until golden, while basting the tops with the pan juices. Season with salt and pepper, to taste (if desired).
  5. Add the lemon wedges around the salmon (adds a stronger lemon taste). (Optional)

    Baste salmon one more time then transfer the pan to your oven to broil / grill for a further 5-6 minutes, or until the tops of the salmon are nicely charred, and the salmon is cooked to your liking.
  6. To serve, drizzle with the sauce and a squeeze of lemon juice. Serve with steamed vegetables; over rice or with a salad.
