Easy Honey Garlic Salmon

April 18, 2020

Well hello there, meet your new favorite salmon dish! This recipe is so embarrassingly easy and turns out perfect every. single. time. The ingredients are so so simple but they create this bomb flavor combination that is down right cravable. Like I am seriously craving it right now as I type out this recipe. 

This makes the most amazing dinner but also a fabulous quick lunch. I served mine with rice (Jasmine, of course!) and asparagus but this is so good served both hot and cold.  Flaked and served atop a huge green salad would be spectacular.  Or in a yummy rice bowl with avocado? Perfection! 

The best part, besides it being an insanely delicious is that it comes together in under 20 minutes. I'd say that's a win, win, WIN.


1/2 Cup Soy Sauce
1/3 Cup Honey
4 Cloves of Minced Garlic {or 4 Teaspoons Crushed Garlic}
1 Teaspoon Rice Vinegar
1 Teaspoon Toasted Sesame Oil
4 Large or 6 Small Salmon Filets
2 Tablespoons Avocado Oil {or your oil of choice}
Salt and Pepper to taste
Sesame Seeds for garnish

{In a mixing bowl, add the soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil and garlic.  Mix well to combine.}

{Season salmon filets with salt and pepper on both sides.}

{Over medium high heat, pan fry the salmon until golden brown about 6 minutes per side.}

{Flip the filets and reduce the heat to low.}

{Add your sauce to the pan.}

{Continue to simmer over low heat for a minute to two. Baste your salmon filets with the yummy sauce. It will start to thicken and reduce.}

{Look how that came together. So so quick, so very easy and seriously delicious!}

{Sprinkle sesame seeds on top for some extra prettiness. Garnish with sliced green onions. Serve it up and enjoy!}

Don't you just want to devour this through the screen?
