Just two simple ingredients, which are likely in your fridge and pantry today, are all that's needed to create a perfectly cooked, glazed salmon meal. Grab your favorite skillet and be ready to enjoy some of the best salmon you've ever had.
1-2poundsfresh salmoncut into serving size fillets
1teaspoonsoy sauceper fillet
salt and pepper
Place olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium/high heat on the stove. Once the oil starts shimmering, add salmon fillets skin-side down. Add a few dashes of soy sauce (about one tsp) and a squeeze of honey (about one tsp) on top of each fillet and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium, cover pan and cook for 4 minutes. Remove the lid and carefully flip over each fillet, cook for another minute uncovered. This is the point where the fillet will get seared and the honey and soy sauce will create a glaze. Don't worry if the salmon skin is blackened and crispy when you flip it over. The glaze on the fillet will be perfect once you remove it from the pan. Remove from skillet and serve right away. Garnish with chives, a sprig of fresh dill and lemon wedges.
Oven Baked Option
Place the salmon fillets skin side down on an non-stick baking sheet, or one lined with parchment paper. Add a few dashes of soy sauce (about one tsp) and a squeeze of honey (about one tsp) on top of each fillet and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Bake in a 450° F oven for 10 - 15 minutes. The glaze on the salmon isn't quite as thick using this technique, but it is still delicious.
