Tips and Tricks to make the perfect One Pan Honey Citrus Salmon:
- I like eating fish, but I always try to buy wild-caught, which I highly recommend as well. Also, you can read about the benefits of wild-caught fish here.
- Run your finger over the salmon fillet before cooking to make sure there are no pin bones.
- In addition, for more enhanced flavor, I would recommend to let the salmon sit in the citrus mixture for 5-10 minutes to absorb it prior to cooking.
- Add more or less honey, adjust to your own preference.
- The garlic can be skipped, but I like the savory flavor it adds.
- When cooking salmon, it’s better to undercook than overcook. Therefore, I like to start checking a big piece like this after 15 minutes.
- When baking, it’s better to cover the salmon with foil, so it doesn’t dry out on the top and it cooks more uniformly.
- You can top the salmon with 2-3 tablespoons of melted butter, to make it extra flaky and the sauce creamier.
- Add a few red pepper flakes for a spicer touch.
- Serve with rice or a green salad.
