|4 (170g each) salmon fillets, patted dry with a paper towel|
|3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil|
|1 lemon, sliced into rounds|
|3 garlic cloves, minced|
|30ml soy sauce|
|Freshly ground black pepper|
|2 tablespoons lemon juice|
|Salt to taste|
|1 teaspoon red pepper flakes|
1. Whisk together 2 tablespoons lemon juice, honey, 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, and soy sauce in a medium bowl.
2. Preheat 2 tablespoons of oil in a skillet. Once hot, add in salmon in a way that skin-side remains up and season with pepper and salt, to taste. Cook each side for about 6 minutes, until deeply golden. Add remaining oil, if needed.
3. Sauté garlic in a skillet for just a minute, then add in sliced lemons and honey mixture. Stir and cook for few minutes, until sauce is reduced by third.
4. Baste fillets with honey-garlic sauce and garnish with lemon slices. Serve and enjoy!
Notes: you can also bake salmon in the oven for about 12-15 minutes, basting it with the sauce from time to time. It is a great high protein dish perfect for protein diets.
