What looks fancy but actually comes together super quickly and makes you feel like A BOSS with all that big, feisty flavor?
Spicy-sweet salmon coated in fresh garlic, stone ground mustard, sweet honey, and flecks of red peppers flakes.
It’s this. It’s Hot Honey Salmon.
And it’s here for us because this is the fancy-but-not-actually-fancy is the vibe we aspire to.
This is a spicy-sweet little number (hello, “hot honey”) and it gets its name from the sauce that gets brushed over the whole thing, which is grainy from the mustard and flecks of fresh garlic, sweet and sticky from the honey, and a little, medium, or LOT hot from however many red pepper flakes you wanna throw in there. I cannot how beautiful it is to look at! And it’s one of those salmons recipes that works for even people who aren’t salmon people, because garlic, honey, stone ground mustard, and some peppery heat are magical little wonder foods.
It is about the most foolproof way you could ever think to make salmon. Chaotic dinnertime and lack of time and energy is no problem for this beauty.
The Ingredient Details
Our basic fabulous ingredient list:
Red Pepper Flakes
… Salt? Olive oil? I’m trying to think if there’s anything else worth mentioning, but I think that’s pretty much the whole shebang right there.
You shake up the sauce, you brush the salmon, and you bake it.
That’s the whole recipe.
And this is why is my favorite.
What To Serve with This Salmon
A pro tip: your sauce can actually work really nicely as a dressing, so save a little bit in your jar, drizzle with olive oil, and toss it on some greens and you’ll almost immediately round out your meal.
This salmon is extremely versatile – pair it with those dressed up greens, or steamed green beans from the garden, some roasted potatoes or rice or cauliflower rice, or, preferably, HOT CRUSTY BREAD WITH BUTTER, and just enjoy your life, really.
Make the sauce: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix the sauce ingredients in a small dish.
Bake the salmon: Line a baking sheet with foil (optional, but makes cleanup much easier). Place salmon skin-side down. Brush or spoon the sauce over the salmon, getting it really well coated on top. Bake for 8-10 minutes depending on desired doneness and the thickness of your salmon fillets, and broil for just a few minutes, in the end, to get it extra browned and pretty on top.
Finish and serve: Top each piece with more red pepper flakes. Serve with little lemon wedges, plus a green salad and maybe (for surely) a hunk of hot, crusty, buttered bread. Dreamy.
