Honey Garlic Salmon

October 15, 2022

One of my favourite ways of eating salmon, packed with flavour, so filling, easy to make and perfect for a quick healthy lunch or dinner!

Honey Garlic Salmon

Today we’re making some honey garlic salmon which cooks in less than 10 minutes and pairs perfectly with veggies like broccoli, zucchini, green beans, asparagus, or brussels sprouts. And to make this a balanced meal, you can add any starches such as rice, quinoa or sweet potato. It’s easy to make and uses basic pantry staples but does not skimp on the flavour.

I’ve been making this a couple of times a week and I never get sick of it. It’s the perfect solution to those quick weeknight dinners for busy people.

I like to serve it with starch or grain and a veggie/salad. Some of my favourite options are:

  • Starch and grains: sweet potatoes, baby potatoes, mashed potatowhite rice, brown rice, couscous, quinoa
  • Veggies: broccoli, asparagus, spinach, carrots, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower etc.
  • Salmon: I used about two 150g (5.3 ounces) fillets for this meal but you can go up to 230g (8 ounces). You can tell the salmon is done cooking when it is no longer red but pinkish.  If the salmon flakes easily when pressed down gently with a fork it means is cooked!
