Materials

Salmon

  • 4 (6 oz each) Salmon filets.
  • ½ tsp Kosher salt.
  • ½ tsp Black pepper.
  • ½ tsp Smoked paprika.
  • ¼ tsp Blackening seasoning. (optional)

Sauce

  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • 2 tbsp 2 tsp olive oil
  • 6 cloves Garlic – minced.
  • ½ cup Honey.
  • 3 tbsp Water
  • 3 tbsp Soy sauce.
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha sauce.
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice.

Instructions

  • Pat salmon dry, then season with salt, pepper, paprika, and blackening seasoning (if using). Set aside. Adjust oven rack to the middle position, then preheat broiler.
  • Add butter and oil to a large, oven-safe skillet over MED-HIGH heat. Once butter is melted, add garlic, water, soy sauce, sriracha, honey, and lemon juice and cook 30 seconds or so, until sauce is heated through.
  • Add salmon, skin side down (if using salmon with skin), and cook 3 minutes. While salmon cooks, baste frequently with sauce from the pan by spooning it over the top of the salmon.
  • Broil salmon for 5-6 minutes, basting with sauce once during the broil, until salmon is caramelized and cooked to desired doneness.
  • Garnish with minced parsley if desired.

Notes

If you’d prefer, season salmon as directed, then pan sear in the pan.  Flip over and sear on the other side, then remove to a plate.  Add sauce ingredients to the pan and cook until warmed through.  Add salmon back to pan and spoon sauce over the salmon.
