Citrus Honey Glazed Salmon Recipe

The perfect pescatarian dish for your Thanksgiving feast!

Salmon is such a versatile meat that is not only full of healthy nutrients but is also quick to cook and low fuss. You can keep it very simple with just a drizzle of olive oil and lemon or dress it up with a glaze such as our Citrus Honey Glaze.

The glaze we are sharing with you today is sweet and salty - and packs a punch of garlic and ginger. You can also turn the heat up even further by adding a pinch of red pepper flakes if that’s your thing. The flavors in this recipe are strong and even a little bit goes a long way.

We recommend cooking the fish skin side down in a cast iron skillet to achieve a crispy skin. If you don’t have cast iron you can absolutely cook this in any other oven safe dish, skip the stove-top sear, and it will still be delicious. 

The key to making a killer piece of roasted salmon is not overcooking it. Cooking proteins can be tricky, especially if you’re new to the practice. A perfectly cooked salmon fillet is supple and juicy but can quickly turn to an overly firm and dry piece of fish in a matter of minutes. It’s best to stay close to the oven when roasting salmon and check regularly to prevent overdoing it.

Cook time will vary depending on the size, but a general guideline is to cook for 4-5 minutes per half inch of thickness. We recommend that you start checking it at around 8-10 minutes.
