5-ingredient glazed salmon
Preparation Time: 5 minutes (+marinading time: 2 hours, but preferably overnight)
Total Time: 15 minutes (+marinading time)
2 tablespoons lemon (or lime) juice
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
4 (6-ounce) salmon filets
1. Mix honey, soy sauce, lime juice and mustard in a plastic storage bag. Add salmon. Marinate in the refrigerator for a few hours.
2. Spray a non-stick pan with cooking spray and cook your salmon on medium-low heat skin side up until the bottom is brown and crispy. (Keep leftover marinade, you'll need it in a minute).
3. Remove your salmon from the pan and set aside.
4. Pour your remaining marinade into the hot pan. Stir continually until the mixture comes to a boil. Add your fish back to the pan and let it finish cooking with the marinade. Your fish should be flaky and cooked through.
Pro tip: Coat measuring cups with cooking spray, so your honey doesn't stick for easier cleanup.
