25 Minute Recipe: Honey Garlic Glazed Salmon

Recipe courtesy of Delish.com

This recipe is very convenient because it uses ingredients that you’re likely to already have! Be sure the skillet is nice and hot before adding the salmon to ensure you get a nice, seared crust.

I love trying creative ways to prepare salmon. It’s such a great fish to eat because it is high in omega-3 fatty acids and it easily takes on the flavor of your added ingredients.

This salmon is the perfect balance of zest, garlic, sweet and salty. It would pair well with mashed potatoes and asparagus!
