Glazed Salmon

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


Ingredients:

  • 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


Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the first four ingredients and submerge the fillets, turning to coat.

  2. Marinate for 30 minutes or up to a few hours. (When ready to cook, reserve the marinade to be used later)

  3. 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.

  4. Transfer salmon to a plate.

  5. Add the remaining marinade to the skillet and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook until the sauce is reduced by about 1/3.

  6. Baste salmon with the sauce and serve immediately.
