Honey Garlic Salmon Recipe quickly marinated in honey, lemon and garlic marinade, then pan fried until crispy on the outside and juicy inside. Read tasty rave reviews yourself.

Delicious honey garlic salmon recipe where tender salmon fillets have caramelized honey crust with a hint of garlic, topped with green onion. And rave reviews in the comments do not lie. Healthy, simple and delicious quick dinner!

Here on the West Coast, we are always baking or grilling salmon (hello, lime ginger salmon and Thai salmon). Since making this recipe, my new favourite salmon cooking method is searing it in a skillet. You are guaranteed to get that crispy caramelized salmon that is often available at high end restaurants that costs an arm and a leg. Even skin is delicious, the proof – salmon stir fry.

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.
