Prep Time: 1 Hour

Yields: 4 Servings


1½ pounds salmon fillets

¼ cup honey

2 tbsps minced garlic

½ tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp warm water

1 tsp dried parsley

Salt and black pepper to taste

Cayenne pepper to taste

¼ cup olive oil

½ of 1 lemon, sliced into rounds

Pat salmon dry with paper towels then place onto a large plate. In a small bowl, combine honey, lemon juice, warm water, dried parsley, salt, and peppers, stirring to mix well. Pour the honey mixture over the salmon and allow it to marinate for 10–20 minutes. In a cast iron skillet, heat oil over medium heat.
