I think this is one of my favorite dishes, as it’s very light, very quick and has terrific flavor.
Served with lemon-dill rice and ginger green beans (both recipes on this blog) makes the best meal without any guilt!
6 tbsp honey
6 tbsp soy sauce
2lbs salmon fillet, skin on
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 generous tbsp minced fennel fronds or Italian parsley
Preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil
In a small bowl, combine the honey and soy sauce and mix well.
Lay the salmon, skin side down, on the baking sheet.
Drizzle a quarter of the sauce over the salmon.
Sprinkle with the red pepper flakes and fennel and broil 2 inches from the heat source for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the salmon.
Drizzle every 2 to 3 minutes with the remaining sauce until the salmon turns a deep mahogany, is opaque and flakes when pierced with a fork.
Do not allow it to char.
