  • (about 4 ounces each) salmon fillets, skin on
  • 1/4 salt
  • 1/4 pepper
  • tablespoons  butter
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • teaspoons  soy sauce
  • tablespoons  honey
  • tablespoon  water
  • tablespoon  fresh squeezed lemon juice,  (plus extra to serve)


  1. Arrange the oven rack to the middle setting and preheat to broil.

  2. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Heat the butter in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat until melted. Add the garlic and sauté for about a minute, until fragrant.

  4. Add the soy sauce, honey, water, and lemon juice and stir combine.

  5. Add the salmon filets to the skillet skin side down. Cook for 3-4 minutes, basting regularly with the pan juices.

  7. Remove from the oven and drizzle with lemon juice and remaining sauce from the pan.
