Ingredients

  • 1/8 cup honey
  • 1 medium lemon
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 12 ounce salmon
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil

Serve With

  • 1 cup wild rice, raw
  • 4 cup broccoli, florets
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon butter, unsalted
  • 2 cup peaches, canned in own juice

Instructions

  • Cook rice according to package directions.
  • While rice cooks, mix honey, 1 teaspoon of lemon zest, juice from the lemon, crushed garlic cloves, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Pour marinade into a ziplock bag and add the salmon. Move salmon around to fully coat and allow to marinate for at least 25 minutes. (Place the salmon with skin-side up so the marinade is easily absorbed).
  • Ten minutes before the rice has finished, preheat a large, non-stick skillet over low-medium heat.
  • Add oil to hot skillet and allow to melt and coat the skillet (add more if necessary, depending on size of skillet).
  • Add salmon to hot oil, skin-side up. Cover and cook for 3 minutes, then remove the lid, cook for an additional minute, and flip. Cover again and cook for 3 minutes more or until cooked through.
  • Once the salmon has started cooking, add broccoli and approximately 1 inch of water to a large pot.
  • Bring the water to a low boil and cook for 5 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking; drain water, cover, and set aside until ready to serve. (Or use a steamer basket if preferred.) Garnish with butter if desired.
  • Serve hot salmon with rice, steamed broccoli, and peaches on the side.

Looks like a great recipe! Can I use maple syrup instead of honey? If so, do I use the same amount as honey? Thanks!

I forgot to ask- What are your thoughts on cooking the salmon in an air fryer? Will it come out better or the same or not that great? If recommended, how long should I cook salmon in an air fryer and what temperature? Do I need to flip it at some point?

Salmon is great in an air fryer! Set your temperature to 390 degrees for 7 minutes, and check the doneness. You may need up to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of your salmon filet. Enjoy!
