Honey Garlic Salmon with Roasted Parmesan Asparagus

We have a lot of fish in our freezer, but sadly non was Salmon. But we decided to try this out and see what we could come up with. It was really good. For a veggie we made roasted parmesan asparagus and for a side we made potatoes with oregano. We are also starting something new here. We decided to put a 5 star rating. If we give it a 5 stars it means we love that recipe so much we would like to make it again very soon and if it's a 1 (well, we won't post those) lol!

This is easy to make. We did Tilapia because we didn't have Salmon and it was still very good.

Honey Garlic Salmon

Ingredients:

4 TBS Honey
2 TBS Soy Sauce
2 TSP White Vinegar
1 TSP Minced Garlic
2 Salmon Fillets (We used Tilapia because that is what we had)
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Scallions, diced finely.


Directions:

1. Whisk together honey, Soy Sauce, white vinegar and garlic in a small bowl.
2. Pat salmon with a paper towel so it's fairly dry and season to taste with salt and pepper.
3. Put some oil in your frying pan (we used the Copper Chef pots so we did not add oil) and heat over high heat. Place salmon in the pan, and then immediately turn the heat down to medium.
4. Cook for 5 minutes until the middle of your fish is just starting to change from translucent.
5. Just before you flip the fish, spread 1 TBS of Sauce on the flesh of each fillet.
6. Flip and add some more of the sauce to each fillet and cook the other side just for about 2 minutes, or until it's done.
7. Remove from pan and let rest for a couple minutes.
Serve  with diced shallots
