I am the only one in my family who likes salmon. I don't know why my crazy husband and boys don't! Weirdos!! It's one of my favorite things. Oh well - more for me I guess! HaHa! At least it's an easy dish to cook for one. If you are cooking for more than one though this recipe should double or triple easy. I absolutely love this recipe, it is SO good and SO easy to throw together! And it even looks kinda fancy, so you could whip it up for company.
Spicy Honey Glazed Salmon
2 Tablespoons hot water
2 to 3 Teaspoons honey
1/2 Teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 Teaspoon red pepper flakes (Or more if you like it really spicy!)
1 Teaspoon butter
In a small dish mix the hot water and honey until the honey is melted. Add in the garlic and red pepper flakes. Next pour the mixture into a small hot frying pan. Let the sauce bubble for just a couple minutes. Add the salmon. Cook for about 3 minutes. Add the 1 teaspoon of butter. (Don't forget it! It really does make a difference.) After about a minute flip the salmon and cook for about another 3 -5 minutes. Depending on how thick your salmon is it should be about done by now. As the salmon cooks the sauce will reduce and turn into a beautiful glaze that just tastes amazing.
