Honey Glazed Salmon Recipe

This honey glazed salmon is a perfect blend of sweet and savory, delivering a delightful and healthy meal that’s quick to prepare. The honey glaze caramelizes beautifully, creating a succulent, flavorful crust on the tender salmon fillets.

Ingredients:

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (optional, for garnish)
  • Lemon wedges (optional, for serving)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  2. Prepare the Glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, olive oil, lemon juice, and minced garlic until well combined.
  3. Season the Salmon: Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels. Season both sides with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Glaze the Salmon: Place the salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops generously with the honey glaze, reserving some glaze for later.
  5. Bake: Bake the salmon in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. Halfway through the baking time, brush the salmon with the remaining glaze.
  6. Broil for Caramelization (optional): If desired, turn on the broiler for the last 2-3 minutes of cooking to achieve a caramelized top. Watch carefully to prevent burning.
  7. Garnish and Serve: Remove the salmon from the oven and let it rest for a couple of minutes. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and serve with lemon wedges if desired.

Enjoy your delicious honey glazed salmon with a side of steamed vegetables or rice for a complete meal!
