Honey and Soy Glazed Salmon

This recipe is such a quick and easy dinner for a weeknight when you arrive home from the lab or an exhausting day at the library.  I’ve been making it for several years and it still hasn’t failed me, even though I’m not even that much of a salmon lover.  The recipe is from Gourmet, as always with a few small tweaks from me.  

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (lemon works, too)
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • two 6-ounce pieces salmon fillet

In a small bowl whisk together honey, soy sauce, lime juice, mustard, and water. In a small non-stick skillet heat oil over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking and cook salmon 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until golden and just cooked through. Transfer salmon to 2 plates. Add honey glaze to skillet and simmer, stirring, 1 minute. Pour glaze over salmon.

I like to serve this delicious fish with steamed vegetables (broccoli is my favorite) and brown rice or a baked potato.
