Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
- 1 tbsp oil
- 4 salmon fillets (4oz)
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp fresh ginger
- ½ navel orange, zest and juice
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 green onions, sliced
- In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Arrange the salmon in the skillet. Cook until it is golden and releases easily from the skillet, about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the salmon and continue to cook until the remaining side is golden, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the salmon from the skillet and set it aside.
- If needed, add some more oil to the skillet. Stir in the garlic and ginger. Cook until they become fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the orange juice, orange zest, honey, and soy sauce. Continue to cook, stirring, until the sauce begins to thicken, about 2 to 3 minutes. Return the salmon to the skillet, and continue to cook, spooning the sauce over the salmon. Cook until the salmon is cooked through and the sauce has thickened, about 2 minutes.
- Serve immediately topped with the green onions. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
