Salmon has always been a hit in out house, especially when this honey soy glazed salmon is on the menu. It’s a stress-free, delicious meal that is bound to have the entire family excited at dinner time.
The mild, delicate flavour of the salmon is an ideal blank canvas for the flavourful sauce, made with sweet honey, salty soy and a hint of ginger and garlic.
The sauce takes minutes to cook and the recipe requires little to no prep. Simply add all the ingredients to a frying pan and saute together until the sauce becomes slightly sticky and coats the salmon.
5 salmon filets (sliced about 4 x 3 inches)
1/3 cup raw honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 tbs. pureed ginger
2 garlic cloves, halved or finely minced (I preferred halved and remove before serving)
Add garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and honey to a large frying pan.
Cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes until bubbling and reduced by about third.
Add the salmon filets and continue to cook on medium heat, spooning the sauce over the filets as they cook to coat.
Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until translucent but still moist. Salmon tastes best when it is still slightly pink inside however, it’s probably a better idea to cook it thoroughly when serving to little ones!
I’ve served this honey soy glazed salmon a variety of sides- on a bed of brown rice or risotto, sauteed or crispy kale chips, or with crunchy homemade parsnips chips (pictured below).
For the parsnips chips, thinly slice the parsnips (a mandolin works best) then fry in a deep fryer on large deep pan (be sure they are completely covered in the oil) until crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil. Garnish with a sprinkle of sea salt.
