Even saying "Honey Glazed Salmon" out loud just sounds luxurious, doesn't it? The fattiness and richness of salmon coated in a sticky, sweet, and deeply savory honey sauce is an enchanting prospect for a decadent dinner that isn't too heavy. Honey Glazed Salmon is basically a good time on a plate that comes together in a flash. Weeknight dinners just got much fancier and much more fantastic.
Ingredients• 2 teaspoons olive oil • 4 (4-6-ounce) salmon fillets • salt, to taste • pepper, to taste • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced • 3 tablespoons water, room temperature, plus 1 tablespoon cold • 1 tablespoon lemon juice • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce • 3 tablespoons honey • 2 teaspoons cornstarch • 1 1/2 tablespoons parsley, chopped • lemon wedges, optional, for serving
Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.
Season the salmon with salt and pepper.
Place the salmon in the hot oil, skin side up, and sauté until cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side. The salmon should flake easily with a fork.
Transfer the salmon to a plate and cover to keep it warm.
Add the garlic to the pan and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds-1 minute.
Add the 3 tablespoons of room-temperature water, lemon juice, soy sauce, and honey to the pan, bringing the mixture to a simmer.
Mix the cornstarch and cold water together to form a slurry.
Slowly add the cornstarch slurry to the pan, whisking to combine.
Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until just thickened, for about 1 minute.
Return the salmon to the pan and spoon the sauce over it.
Serve topped with parsley and lemon wedges.
