Amazing Honey Sriracha Salmon

I absolutely love salmon. Baked, pan-fried, steamed or grilled. It is amazing any way you prepare it. This is one of my favorite ways to prepare salmon. Marinated in a sweet and spicy honey sriracha sauce and cook to perfection. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and spicy and is a super easy way to prepare salmon.

One of our favorite party tricks? Baking a big piece of salmon and letting our guests serve themselves. That’s why we’ve got baked garlic-butter salmon on heavy rotation. This honey-Sriracha variety does particularly well after a couple minutes under the broiler. Keep a close eye on it, and pull it as soon as the top layer of sauce begins to caramelize to avoid burning or overcooking the fish.

You can either bake of pan fry the salmon (I’ve included instructions for both!)

The sauce is just spicy enough with added sweetness from the honey. If you want it a bit spicier go ahead and add some more Sriracha or red pepper flakes. You can cool it down by adding more honey or soy sauce.

I like to double the sauce. I use half for the marinade and reserve the other half for brushing on top after the salmon has finished baking. It’s also amazing to pour the extra sauce over rice.

For the pan fry method:

Add olive oil to a large skillet. When the pan is hot add in salmon skin side down. Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side. The salmon should start to turn opaque. Take off of the heat. When the salmon is cool enough to handle peel off the skin. Serve immediately with a sprinkle of green onions and sesame seeds for garnish.

For the oven method:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking pan with cooking spray or layer with parchment paper. Place in the oven and cook for about 15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through. Make sure not to overcook the salmon. When the salmon is cool enough to handle peel off the skin. Serve immediately with a sprinkle of green onions and sesame seeds for garnish.
