Garlic and Honey Glazed Salmon
You need to make this immediately…the lemon combined with Mike’s Hot Honey makes a glaze that is out of this world. This Garlic and Honey Glazed Salmon is another one of my super easy, super quick and super delicious recipes. If you are local to Charlotte, head on over to The Carolina Meat & Fish Co. and grab some Faroe Island Salmon (or your favorite Salmon) and a bottle of this amazing honey. Live elsewhere…the market can ship to you!!! Just a few ingredients will make a meal you and your family will love…make extra because seconds are going to happen!
What you need:
- 1 lb. Faroe Island Salmon
- 3 TBLS Mike’s Hot Honey (you can substitute Orange Blossom Honey if you wish)
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- juice of 1/2 lemon
Grab a cast iron pan and heat to medium-high. Rub with olive oil or line with non-stick spray. Season the salmon on both sides with salt/pepper. Place the salmon in the heated pan skin side down. Allow the skin to brown and become crisp.
While the salmon is searing, in a bowl, combine the honey and lemon juice. Mix well. Continue to sear the salmon on the other side (s). Faroe Island Salmon is sushi-grade, so for an 8 oz. piece, 4 to 5 minutes per side will produce a perfect medium to medium-rare. Do NOT overcook your salmon!
When the salmon is perfectly seared, with the skin side up, lower the heat, or you can actually take off the heat, and add the garlic. Pour in the lemon/honey mixture and allow to bubble and form a glaze.
Serve on a bed of rice and pour the remaining sauce on top of the salmon.
