Honey Lemon Garlic Salmon


This sweet dinner treat combines the healthy omega-3s and protein of salmon with lemon’s tang and immune-boosting vitamin C.

  • 4 Wild-caught salmon fillets about 1/2 pound each, skin off or on
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika (mild, sweet or smoky)
  • 2 tbs Butter
  • 4 cloves Garlic, finely chopped or minced
  • 4 tbs Honey
  • 1 tbs Water
  • 2 tsp Soy sauce
  • 1 tbs Fresh squeezed lemon juice, (plus extra to serve)
  • Salt and pepper, to season
  • Lemon wedges to serve

  1. Slide oven shelf to the middle of oven; preheat to broil/grill settings on medium heat.
  2. Season salmon with salt, pepper and paprika. Set aside.
  3. Heat butter in a skillet or pan over medium-high heat until melted. Add garlic and sauté for about a minute, until fragrant. Pour in honey, water and soy sauce; allow the flavors to heat through and combine. Add lemon juice; stir well to combine flavors.
  4. Add salmon fillets to 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. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Baste salmon one more time then transfer the pan to your oven to broil/grill for 5-6 minutes, or until the tops of the salmon are nicely charred, and the salmon is cooked to your liking. (Add the lemon wedges around the salmon before broiling for a stronger lemon tang).
  6. To serve, drizzle with the sauce and a squeeze of lemon juice.  

Serve with steamed vegetables over rice or with a salad.
