Honey & soy glazed salmon

Honey & soy glazed salmon

A pretty salmon fillet magnified with a sweet & savory sauce that is so easy to make. It cooks in 10 minutes because while the salmon is baking, we're reducing the sauce and once the salmon is cooked, we drizzle it with the sauce and serve! As simple as that, really.

Served with roasted Brussels sprouts, it was a delight. Brussels sprouts are not the favorite veggie in my household (but I absolutely love it), but with the sweet and savory sauce, it went a little bit smoother for the picky eaters. You could definitely serve that over rice or a big bowl a greens, yummy.

Honey & soy glazed salmon (serves 2) :

  • 2 salmon fillet (about 150g each)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 lime
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sesame seeds
  • A few pomegranate seeds

Preheat the oven at 180°C/350°F.

Put the salmon on a parchment paper covered baking sheet.

Brush the salmon with olive oil.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a sauce pan, add honey, lime juice and soy sauce. Season with pepper.

Grate garlic finely into the sauce.

Heat the sauce on medium-low until it bubbles and thickens to form a sirupy sauce.

When the fish is done, drizzle it with the reduced sauce.

Add a few sesame seeds and pomegranate seeds.
