Salmon is high in omega-3's and is a great source of protein. Try this simple but delicious meal any night of the week. Serve with roasted potatoes and asparagus and you're done! #seafood
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce or tamari
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
4 salmon fillets (4-6 ounces)
3 tablespoons avocado oil
In a small bowl, whisk together the first four ingredients and submerge the fillets, turning to coat.
Marinate for 30 minutes or up to a few hours. (When ready to cook, reserve the marinade to be used later)
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat two tablespoons oil. When oil is hot but not smoking, add salmon skin-side down, 3-5 minutes. You may need to add more oil, then flip and cook an additional 3 minutes or until the flesh flakes easily with a fork.
Transfer salmon to a plate.
Add the remaining marinade to the skillet and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook until the sauce is reduced by about 1/3.
Baste salmon with the sauce and serve immediately.
