SWEET AND SPICY GLAZED SALMON


Salmon is one of my favorite foods – it’s tasty and flaky, plus great for your health. Wild caught salmon is an amazing source of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin B12, which aids heart health and supports the body’s essential nutrients. This sweet and spicy glazed salmon is a little bit spicy, a little bit sweet and the perfect dinner when you have a time crunch. Give it a try!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2-4 pieces of salmon
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup ghee (butter also works)
  • 2 tbsp avocado or olive oil
  • 5-8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp sriracha
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup warm water

In a large saucepan, whisk together ghee, avocado oil, minced garlic, honey, lemon juice, sriracha, coconut aminos and water. Turn on medium/high heat and bring to a simmer.

Pat down salmon and season with paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. When sauce begins to caramelize, lower heat to medium and place salmon on top skin-down. Cook for 5 minutes on each side.

Turn oven on high broil, transfer salmon to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and top it with remaining sauce. Broil for 3-5 minutes, remove from oven and serve.
