Honey Garlic Salmon
Sweet, garlicky, and spicy salmon. Quickly marinated then pan seared, dinner is ready in under 30 minutes!
- 1 pound salmon fillets
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon warm water
- 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- a pinch each salt, cayenne pepper, and black pepper
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 1/2 of a lemon sliced into rounds
- 2-3 tablespoons olive oil enough to coat the bottom of the skillet
Pat the salmon dry with paper towels. In a small bowl combine the honey, lemon juice, water, parsley, salt, cayenne, and pepper; stir well. Place the salmon on a large plate and pour the honey mixture over the salmon. Let it marinate for 10-20 minutes while you mince the garlic and slice the lemon.
Heat the oil in a cast iron skillet or other non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully place the salmon and marinade in the skillet and cook, turning with fish tongs (preferred) once, until cooked through and slightly browned on top, about 5 minutes. Turn the heat down, add the garlic and sliced lemon, and stir the garlic for 1 minute until softened.
