My family loves salmon, as a mom I'm always looking for new and different recipes for my family. I stumbled on this recipe and thought that it would be a great fit for my family. Of course, I have this yummy salmon recipe on hand. However, I really did not feel like cooking and broiling anything. At first, I was really hesitant about trying this recipe. However, I do love the way honey tasted on my food so I said why not. This recipe is super simple to make and it tastes so yummy. I think I'm going to have a taste test with my family to see which recipe they prefer. If you're looking for a simple but yummy salmon recipe. You're going to love this.



  • 4 salmon filets, skin on
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice


  1. Minced garlic and have all ingredients ready and measured
  2. Season salmon with salt and pepper.
  3. Add oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Once hot add in the salmon skin side down.
  5. Cook salmon for 5-7 minutes on skin side (based on the size of the salmon)
  6. Very carefully flip salmon. If the skin is sticking to the pan give it more time to cook. 
  7. Add minced garlic to the pan and cook for 1 minute.
  8. Combine honey and lemon juice in a small bowl. Add the sauce to the pan.
  9. Continue cooking for 1-3 minutes or until the salmon is fully cooked and looks opaque and the sauce is thick.
  10. Take off of the heat. When the salmon is cool enough to handle peel off the skin.
  11. Serve immediately
