Even saying "Honey Glazed Salmon" out loud just sounds luxurious, doesn't it? The fattiness and richness of salmon coated in a sticky, sweet, and deeply savory honey sauce is an enchanting prospect for a decadent dinner that isn't too heavy. Honey Glazed Salmon is basically a good time on a plate that comes together in a flash. Weeknight dinners just got much fancier and much more fantastic.


• 2 teaspoons olive oil • 4 (4-6-ounce) salmon fillets • salt, to taste • pepper, to taste • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced • 3 tablespoons water, room temperature, plus 1 tablespoon cold • 1 tablespoon lemon juice • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce • 3 tablespoons honey • 2 teaspoons cornstarch • 1 1/2 tablespoons parsley, chopped • lemon wedges, optional, for serving

Add the garlic to the pan and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds-1 minute.

Add the 3 tablespoons of room-temperature water, lemon juice, soy sauce, and honey to the pan, bringing the mixture to a simmer.

Step 7

Mix the cornstarch and cold water together to form a slurry.

Step 8

Slowly add the cornstarch slurry to the pan, whisking to combine.

Step 9

Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until just thickened, for about 1 minute.

Step 10

Return the salmon to the pan and spoon the sauce over it.

Step 11

Serve topped with parsley and lemon wedges.
