Honey Garlic Salmon

Honey Garlic Salmon

If you’re craving a delicious and healthy meal without spending hours in the kitchen, you will love this Honey Garlic Salmon. Salmon fillets are cooked until tender and covered in the most incredible honey glaze made with just 5 simple ingredients. The best thing about this is that you only need one pan and the whole dish can be made in 15 minutes! I like to serve this with spicy mayonnaise, steamed rice, and veggies, but feel free to add whatever you think sounds good.

Can you Honey Garlic Salmon ahead of time?

Honey Garlic Salmon is best made and eaten immediately.
