Pan-fried salmon cooked in a delicious honey, orange garlic sauce. If you desire charred and crispy edges, I recommend grilling or broiling the salmon. Serve the salmon drizzled with sauce over rice or noodles. They are also excellent paired with steamed vegetables or with a salad.
4 (6-oz.) skinless salmon fillets, (170 g. each)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp butter
1/4 c. fresh orange juice, (about 1/2 an orange)
4 cloves garlic, crushed or minced
3 tbsp honey
2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 an orange, sliced to serve
salt and cracked black pepper, to taste
HOW TO MAKE CRISPY HONEY ORANGE GLAZED SALMON
Step 1: In a pan or skillet, melt the butter (or oil) on medium-high heat. Once the butter has melted, place the salmon in the pan (skin-side up) and sear for about 3 to 4 minutes. Then, flip and continue to sear the other side for another 2 minutes.
Step 2: Add the orange juice to the pan and let it reduce to half for about a minute. Toss in the garlic and cook for an additional minute.
Step 3: To the sides of the pan, move the salmon. Add the honey along with the soy sauce. Stir them well to blend the flavors.
Step 4: Bring the mixture to a simmer until it has reduced to a nice syrup. It takes about 30 seconds to a minute. To evenly coat the salmon in the sauce, gently move them around.
Step 5: Take the salmon out of the pan once done to your liking.
Step 7: To taste, season with salt and pepper. Over the salmon, drizzle the sauce. Serve over noodles, rice, or with steamed veggies or salad. Enjoy!
You can broil or grill the salmon in the last 2 minutes of cooking to get those charred and crispy edges. If broiling, make sure to preheat the broiler.
