Total time: 25 minutes
4 (170g each) salmon fillets, patted dry with a paper towel
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 lemon, sliced into rounds
3 garlic cloves, minced
30ml soy sauce
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Kosher salt, to taste
1 teaspoon chilli flakes
1. Whisk together 2 tablespoons lemon juice, honey, 1 teaspoon chilli flakes, and soy sauce in a medium bowl.
2. Preheat 2 tablespoons of oil in a skillet. Once hot, add in salmon in a way that skin-side remains up and season with pepper and salt, to taste. Cook each side for about 6 minutes, until deeply golden. Add remaining oil, if needed.
3. Sauté garlic in a skillet for just a minute, then add in sliced lemons and honey mixture. Stir and cook for a few minutes, until sauce is reduced by third.
4. Baste fillets with honey-garlic sauce and garnish with lemon slices. Serve and enjoy!
