I love salmon…its so versatile and delicious. Not to mention all those healthy omega fats! One of my favorite kinds of salmon is wild sockeye. If I can get it fresh (or frozen), its usually the one I’ll reach for. I love the bright color, and the texture is perfect and flaky when its just cooked through. I prepare salmon in a bunch of different ways, with savory sauces and sweet glazes. My preference is usually sweet, but I do really love a savory salmon too.
This sweet honey garlic and ginger salmon is a great staple recipe and would please just about anybody. Plus its super simple and easy to make. Fail proof…really! I used coconut aminos in mine, but lower sodium soy sauce or Bragg’s soy seasoning would work as well.
If you’re looking for some other yummy salmon recipes to bookmark, I recommend trying my other favorites: Lemon Balsamic Glazed Salmon, Salmon with Lemon Dill Sauce or my Easy Salmon Glaze (uses orange marmalade)
- 2 salmon fillets (113 g or 4 oz each)
- ⅓ cup coconut aminos (or lower sodium soy sauce)
- 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
- 1 Tbsp fresh garlic, minced
- 2 Tbsp honey
- In a medium bowl mix together everything but the salmon.
- Add the salmon to the marinade and allow to marinate for 10 min (up to 30 min)
- Heat a skillet on the stove over medium heat.
- Remove the salmon from the marinade (save the marinade) and place in the skillet (spray the skillet with cooking spray beforehand)
- Once one side of the salmon is cooked, flip and cook the other side.
- Remove the salmon from the skillet when done and add the reserved marinade and cook down until its reduced to a more syrup consistency.
- Drizzle the marinade sauce over the salmon.
- I served it with sliced red cabbage & onion sauteed with a splash of balsamic vinegar and a sprinkle of salt & pepper.
