  • 1/3 cup honey

  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1 tsp red chili flakes

  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • 4 6oz salmon fillets (make sure they are patted dry)

  • Kosher salt

  • Fresh ground black pepper

  • 3 garlic cloves minced

  • 1 lemon sliced into rounds

  • Freshly chopped parsley


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together honey, coconut aminos, lemon juice, and red pepper flakes.

  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat two tablespoons oil. When oil is hot but not smoking, add salmon skin-side up and season with salt and pepper. Cook salmon until deeply golden, about 6 minutes, then flip over and add remaining tablespoon of oil.

  3. Add garlic to the skillet and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the honey mixture and sliced lemons and cook until sauce is reduced by about 1/3. Baste salmon with the sauce.

  4. Garnish with sliced lemon and parsley to serve.
