Mildly spicy salmon


So with all of the cooking I’ve been doing recently, I think my taste buds has gone from not liking hot-spicy foods at all to wanting to try certain recipes that are mildly spicy. Like, for example, I enjoy using Frank’s buffalo sauce for cooking chicken and or just using it as a dipping sauce mixed with a little bit of ranch dressing, of course, lol. I too have enjoyed discovering recipes that call for cayenne pepper. Furthermore, not surprisingly when I saw that cayenne pepper is one of the main ingredients I immediately became inspired to want to cook this dish.

If you’re like me and love mildly spicy food then may I suggest you try this recipe. Including it being lightly spicy, it is also garlicky, sweet and a sticky salmon with simple ingredients. Takes 20 mins, so good and perfect for tonight’s dinner.

Honey Garlic Salmon

Ingredients:

12 oz salmon, cut into 2-3 strips
Salt
Black Pepper
Pinch of cayenne pepper
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp water
1 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lemon, sliced into wedges

Directions

Grab a sheet of wax paper and lay it on the kitchen counter. Rinse and pat dry salmon. Season salmon with salt, black and cayenne pepper. Set aside. In a small mixing bowl add the honey, water, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and a pinch of salt together. Stir to combine well.

Pour a few drops of olive oil in a large skillet and turn the stove on medium-high heat. Place salmon in skillet and cook it until half done. Add the garlic into the pan until slightly browned. Add the honey mixture and lemon wedges into the skillet, reduce the sauce until it’s sticky. Finish it off by broiling the salmon in the oven for 1 minute or until the surface becomes slightly charred (optional)
