Nutritional Benefits of Honey Glazed Salmon Salmon

Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which is vital for maintaining good heart health. The fatty acids in salmon help lower the risk of heart disease, reduce inflammation and even improve brain function. Apart from being versatile and delicious, salmon is high in protein which is essential for building and repairing muscle tissue. It is also low in calories and therefore a good source of weight management.

The other main ingredient in this dish, honey, is also very nutritious. Honey is a natural sweetener that is rich in antioxidants that help protect your body from damage caused by free radicals. It also has antibacterial properties that can boost your immune system. When combined with salmon, these two ingredients create a nutritious and delicious meal.

Preparing Honey-Glazed Salmon

Preparing honey-glazed salmon is quick and easy, and it requires just a few ingredients. To make the glaze, you will need honey, soy sauce, olive oil, sriracha/hot sauce, lemon juice, garlic, and ginger. Mix the ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. You’d then arrange the salmon in a baking tray, and sprinkle it with salt, paprika, and olive oil. Bake for 12-15 minutes until it cooks through and flaky.  Next, add the honey glaze to the skillet and cook for 3-5 minutes on medium heat until it thickens slightly. Finally, add the salmon to the skillet and spoon the glaze over each fillet. Cook for another minute or two until the glaze is caramelized and sticky.
