Honey-Ginger-Garlic Glazed Salmon

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today, I will be sharing my recipe on Honey-Ginger-Garlic Glazed Salmon. This dish is extremely delicious and flavorful! It’s similar to the general tso sauce but on salmon! I also made the same recipe using Tofu which I will post as a separate blog in a couple of weeks. This is a super quick and easy recipe to make and healthy-ish with the fish! Let’s get started!

Ingredients:

  • Salmon fillets
  • Soy Sauce
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Honey
  • Brown Sugar
  • Crushed red pepper
  • Cayenne powder

Directions:

  1. First, finely chop the garlic and grate the ginger.
  2. In a small pot over medium heat, add a splash of oil and sauté the garlic and ginger until browned.IMG_0106.JPG
  3. Turn the heat on low and add about 4 table spoons of soy sauce, 2 spoons of honey, 2 spoons of brown sugar and stir well.
  4. Add crushed red pepper and cayenne pepper to taste.
  5. Let simmer on low for about 3 minutes and stir well. Set aside.IMG_0107.JPG
  6. Place a skillet on medium heat and let it warm up for about 2 minutes.
  7. Add about 3 spoons of oil and then add the salmon fillet.
  8. Let the salmon cook without moving it around for about 6-7 minutes. You should see the color changing from bottom to top.
  9. Carefully with tongs, flip the salmon on to it’s other side and let it cook for another 4 minutes. IMG_0118.JPG
  10. With the tongs, hold the salmon onto its side and let cook.
  11. Repeat with the other side.
  12. Place the skillet flat on the skillet on low heat and pour the ginger-garlic glaze over the salmon.
  13. Heat on low for 2 minutes.
  14. Plate and serve!IMG_0122.JPGIMG_0125.JPGIMG_0121.JPGIMG_0120.JPG

Suggestions, Substitutions, Tips & Tricks:

  • Serve alongside rice and vegetables.
  • I made this exact recipe but with Tofu: except the tofu takes longer to pan fry.
  • Baking the salmon is also a healthier alternative.
  • Add as much of any of the ingredients you want according to your taste.

This is a perfect recipe if you’re craving general tso chicken but want to opt out of that breaded and deep fried chicken. Salmon is a great source of protein, vitamins, minerals, and omega-3-fatty acids! It seriously takes under 30 minutes to make and is great for leftovers as well!
