Honey Garlic Salmon


4 wild caught salmon fillets about 1/2 pound or 250 grams each, skin off or on

Salt and pepper, to season

1/2 teaspoon paprika (mild, sweet or smokey)

2 tablespoons butter

4 cloves garlic, finely chopped or minced

4 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon water

2 teaspoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice, (plus extra to serve)

Lemon wedges to serve


  1. Arrange oven shelf to the middle of your oven. Preheat oven to broil/grill settings on medium heat.

  2. Season salmon with salt, pepper and paprika. Set aside.

  3. Heat the butter in a skillet or pan over medium-high heat until melted. Add the garlic and sauté for about a minute, until fragrant. Pour in the honey, water and soy sauce; allow the flavours to heat through and combine. Add in the lemon juice; stir well to combine all of the flavours together.

  4. Add the salmon steaks to the sauce in the pan; cook each fillet (skin-side down if there's any skin) for 3-4 minutes or until golden, while basting the tops with the pan juices.

  5. Season with salt and pepper, to taste (if desired).

  6. Optional -- Add the lemon wedges around the salmon (adds a stronger lemon taste).

  7. Baste salmon one more time then transfer the pan to your oven to broil / grill for a further 5-6 minutes, or until the tops of the salmon are nicely charred, and the salmon is cooked to your liking.

  8. To serve, drizzle with the sauce and a squeeze of lemon juice. Serve with steamed vegetables; over rice or with a salad.
