Whenever someone asks me how to cook salmon, this is the recipe I send them. It is so flavorful, perfectly cooked, and saucy. I love when a sauce is this easy and doesn’t require an extra pot/bowl/food processor to create. Here, the sauce becomes a delicious glaze right in the same skillet while the salmon cooks. A fantastic weeknight or date night at home meal!

One-Skillet Honey-Garlic Salmon

Ingredients

  • (6 ounce) skin-on salmon fillets
  • 1 tbsp neutral cooking oil
  • 1/4  cup  soy sauce
  • 1 navel orange, juiced
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 (1 inch) piece fresh ginger, gratedgrated

Instructions

  • Score salmon skin by using a very sharp knife to make four 1-inch lengthwise incisions into the skin. Do not cut past the skin. Allow salmon to come to room temperature by sitting unrefrigerated for at least 15 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Gently lay salmon skin-side down into the hot skillet; cook until the skin is crispy and golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip salmon and cook to brown other side, about 1 minute.
  • Reduce heat to low. Mix soy sauce, orange juice, maple syrup, garlic, and ginger together in the skillet. Flip salmon again to cook skin-side in the sauce. Continue cooking, basting frequently, until salmon flakes easily with a fork, 6 to 7 minutes.
