This gorgeous salmon recipe is an easy dinner option that is ready in under 20 minutes! The salmon is simply cooked in a non-stick skillet and coated with delicious ginger, orange, and honey sauce that adds a burst of fresh flavor. Serve your finished fillets over rice or with a side of sautéed greens! Enjoy! 


1 tbsp
salmon fillets (4oz)
garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp
grated fresh ginger
navel orange, zest and juice
2 tbsp
2 tbsp
soy sauce
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.
