The Best Salmon Marinade Ever

The Best Salmon Marinade Ever
Fresh Publix Salmon
Pan Seared Salmon


I know this is something relatively new for us at CM but hear me out! I am always and forever trying to cleanse and eat healthier. This is a struggle for me, but whenever I get rolling I really get rolling. I made Cauliflower Mash with this and I am going to post my recipe up for you all, and I got the cauliflower  recipe from Chef Ed but that's another post.  Lets get to the fish. 


My boyfriend has a shellfish allergy and I'm from Florida. You can see how this can bring up issues in my kitchen. Of course I never have any shellfish out when he's around and I can't cook or eat shellfish/ seafood when he's around. 

I however love seafood. I was practically raised on it. Whenever I get the chance to cook it I grab at that opportunity for sure. So Treyton (my son) has made it clear to me that he like salmon so I grabbed some from Publix. I had intentions of buying it frozen  but it was more salmon than I needed so I bought it fresh and I ammmm sooo glad I did. SO GLAD. 

I marinated the salmon for wait for it.... 30 minutes! It took to the fish so well. It was absolutely amazing. Juicy and flavorful and next time I might add some more lime. 

+ 1 pound of salmon ( filets)

+ 2 tbsp of honey

+ 1 tbsp of lemon or lime juice

+ 1 tsp of minced garlic (or more depending on your palate)

+ Virgin Olive Oil

+ Salt & Pepper

Combine the honey, juice, garlic, salt, and pepper

Place your salmon filets in a ziploc bag, then pour your marinade over the salmon, mesh it around a bit. Lay the salmon flesh down if it still has the skin on. 15 minutes in the fridge would be fine or anytime longer. 

Pour  some olive oil in a skillet, have the heat on medium. Make sure the oil has covered the bottom of the skillet. 

Place the salmon in the skillet flesh down for about 3-4 minutes. Covered. Flip over your salmon, and make sure the bottom of the skillet is still coated because the you are now cooking on the  skin side. ( If you had the skin still on) Cook for 3-4 minutes. 

You should definitely serve this fresh out the skillet if possible. 

This would be so amazing with a quinoa salad, or a spinach, mozzarella, and balsamic salad
