  • 4 fillets salmon about 4 ounces each
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup honey


  • Turn your oven on the Broil setting.
  • Season the salmon fillets with salt, pepper and paprika.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the water, soy sauce, honey and lemon juice.
  • In a large oven safe skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add the soy sauce mixture and let it cook for a minute.
  • Add your seasoned salmon fillets to the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes and baste the top of each fillet with sauce while they cook, making sure each fillet is coated well.
  • Transfer your skillet to your preheated oven and cook for 5 more minutes or until the tops of the salmon are a dark brown and the salmon is cooked through to your preference.
  • Baste the salmon one last time with the sauce. Serve with lemon wedges and green beans or asparagus on the side.
