Recipe Variations

You can also buy skinless salmon fillets, but be careful with the pan temperature so as not to break up the fillets during cooking. To give a further note of freshness, grate lemon zest over the cooked salmon and add chopped parsley or coriander.

To cook honey salmon in the oven, all you have to do is add all the ingredients to a baking dish and cook at 170 °C for 10-15 minutes. If you don't like garlic, add whole cloves to the pan and remove after cooking. For a less tight sauce you can add a few tablespoons of water while cooking.
