Pinterest Recipe – Easy Crispy Honey Garlic Salmon

This is a great stove top recipe for when you are traveling for only a few days. I say a few days only because fish is generally more expensive and will keep you from other great stuff like fresh fruits and vegetables.

Easy Crispy Honey Garlic Salmon

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp lemon/lime juice (freshly squeezed is best)
  • 2 – 3 large garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 6 x 3 oz each salmon fillets, skin on/off
  • 1 – 2 tsp coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped

Directions

    1. 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.
    2. 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 your skillet is not large enough, I recommend cooking in two batches. If you over crowd the skillet, cooking time increases by a few minutes for each step. Serve hot garnished with green onions, alongside quinoa and steamed broccoli – my favourite.
Storage Instructions: Refrigerate covered for up to 5 days.

Notes

To make a full meal (optional): While salmon is marinating, cook quinoa per package instructions. To cook broccoli, in a medium pot bring water to a boil, add a pinch of salt along with broccoli, and cook for 3-4 minutes. Drain and place ice on top to stop the cooking process. Drain and serve. That’s it. Eating clean is easy, especially if you make enough for leftovers that last up to 5 days refrigerated.
