Honey Soy Salmon
This Honey Soy Salmon recipe is the perfect weeknight meal! All you need is 6 ingredients and 15 minutes to whip up this insanely flavorful dish that pairs perfectly with rice and a vegetable.
honey soy salmon, salmon
(approx. 2-3 salmon)
salt and pepper
green onions for garnish
for the sauce:
toasted sesame oil
arrowroot or cornstarch
Thaw salmon according to instructions on the package.
Heat a large nonstick or cast iron skillet over medium heat with 1 tbsp oil, then add the salmon skin side down. Place a lid on the skillet and cook the salmon for 4-5 minutes.
While the salmon is cooking, prep the sauce: whisk all sauce ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.
After the 5 minutes is up, add garlic to the skillet and cook the salmon for 1 more minute.
Reduce heat to low, then pour the sauce over the salmon and cook for 1-2 more minutes or until the sauce thickens.
Sprinkle green onions over the salmon before serving and enjoy!
*If the salmon fillets are on the larger size, slice them in half (which is what I did for this recipe!)
