How to make honey garlic salmon?

So, the first thing you want to do when making this easy salmon recipe is preheat your oven on broil. Next, in a bowl add your, butter (melted), minced garlic, soy sauce, and brown sugar. You want to mix those ingredients together well and set them to the side. 

The next step would be to preheat your stove to medium-high. Add your butter into the pan and allow it to melt. Once you have done this go ahead and add your salmon into the pan. Make sure you have a pan that is oven safe so that you will be able to place your pan in the oven. I used a cast iron pan to make this baked salmon recipe.

 Once you have your salmon into the pan begin seasoning the top of the salmon. 

Lastly, pour that sauce mixture that you made over the top of your salmon. Allow cooking for 4 minutes on one side. 

In a preheated oven on broil add your salmon in for 5 to 6 minutes. Allow cooking until the top is lightly browned. So, carefully remove from the oven. Place your lemon slices on the top and there you have it honey garlic salmon!

The Best Baked Salmon Recipe(Honey Garlic)

1)How do you keep salmon from drying out?

Allowing the salmon to cook in the oven at a gentle heat. This allows the salmon to stay moist. Also, I broiled my salmon but did not pass 5 to 6 minutes. Lastly, In doing this I was able to keep my salmon fillets nice and tender.

2) How to keep your salmon fresh?

I always say the best way to keep your salmon fresh is to purchase them fresh off the ice from someplace like Publix or a seafood market. If you can’t do that just make sure you keep your salmon in the refrigerator for no longer than two days at a cool temperature. Another, way to keep salmon fresh is by placing the salmon in an airtight refrigerator bag. 

3)How to tell if salmon is cooked?

If you use a spoon or fork to lightly press down on the top of your salmon if its breaks apart. Your salmon is done but if it doesn’t just allow your salmon to cook a little while longer.
