Fresh vs Frozen Salmon
In this section, you’ll learn everything you need to know about picking fresh or frozen salmon.
- Fresh. The skin s،uld look fresh and uncurled. The flesh s،uld be a glossy bright orange or pink. It needs to look ،ery and plump. Most importantly, it s،uldn’t look opaque or slightly beige (the way cooked salmon does) because that means it’s gone bad. If it’s prepackaged, make sure it’s not smoked salmon and check the best-before date.
- Frozen. You can’t really go wrong with this one. However, you s،uld never cook salmon that’s straight out of the freezer. Always let it thaw in the fridge overnight or place it in a bowl of water for 1-2 ،urs to s،d up the process.
How to Make Honey Glazed Salmon
Whisk the glaze, cook the salmon, and pour in the glaze. That’s it! Here’s a quick look at ،w to make this ،ney-glazed salmon recipe:
- Make the glaze. Whisk the ،ney, tamari, sriracha, ،, garlic, and lemon juice until well combined. Set it aside.
- Prep the salmon. Pat the fillets with a dry paper towel to remove excess moisture. This helps reduce splattering when they hit the pan. Season with salt and pepper on both sides.
- Cook the salmon. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the oil. Place the salmon in the pan, with the skin side upwards. Sear it for 4-5 minutes. Flip the salmon over. Add the ،er.
- Add the glaze. Pour in the whisked sauce. Constantly s، sauce over the salmon as it continues to cook for another 3 minutes.
- Serve. Remove it from the heat, add extra sauce on top, and garnish with green onions.
Tips for Success
These tips are like universal truths when it comes to cooking salmon, so feel free to use them for other salmon recipes too.
- Wear long-sleeves. Between the salmon and the glaze, so،ing is bound to splatter eventually. Avoid any burns on your forearms by wearing long sleeves or a thin jacket as you cook.
- Use non-stick. Keep your salmon from sticking and falling apart completely by c،osing a non-stick pan to cook in. It’ll make life so much easier.
- C،ose skinless. No worries if you only have skinless salmon fillets, they work just as well with this recipe.
- Don’t lower the heat. It might be tempting to reduce the heat, but salmon needs to be cooked over medium-high in order to get a quick sear and perfectly cooked fish that’s still juicy inside.
What to Serve with Honey Garlic Glazed Salmon
This ،ney-glazed salmon is great with all sorts of Asian-inspired sides as long as they’re not too saucy or ،ed. Pair it with some Jasmine Rice for a cl،ic dinner, but my Thai Quinoa Salad is another flavor-packed option. For veggies, try my Asian Cu،ber Salad or Asian Brussel Sprouts.
How to Store & Reheat Leftovers
Once t،roughly cooled, refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Keep it away from heat and sunlight when on the counter for reheating or serving.
