Tender salmon fillets with caramelized honey crust, with a hint of garlic and topped with chopped scallions. Clean, simple and delicious! I served this Easy Honey Garlic Salmon ala ‘meal prep’ style – with cooked quinoa and steamed broccoli.
- 2 Tbsp of Honey
- 1 Tbsp of lemon/lime juice
- 2/3 Garlic cloves crushed
- 1/2 Tbsp of Salt
- 2 Fillets of Salmon
- 2 Scallions
- In a small bowl, whisk together honey, lemon/lime juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Place salmon fillets in a large resealable Ziploc bag and pour marinade over. Squeeze as much air out as possible and seal the bag. Gently move fillets around inside the bag to make sure they are all evenly coated. Place flesh side down and let marinate 15 minutes.
- Preheat large non-stick skillet on low – medium heat and add oil, making sure it coats the bottom of the skillet evenly. Place salmon fillets flesh side down leaving enough space in between them. Cover with a lid and cook for 3 minutes. Remove the lid, cook another minute and flip over. Repeat: cover, cook for 3 minutes, remove the lid and cook for another minute.If you over crowd the skillet, cooking time increases by a few minutes for each step. Serve hot garnished with scallions, alongside quinoa and steamed broccoli.
