This is such a fun and easy recipe! If you want to hop on the hot honey trend, this is a good way to do it. You don't need to buy any hot honey because you're gonna make it yourself! And...it's easy peasy. Just honey and thinly sliced jalapeno that simmers for about 5 minutes on the stove-top and you're all set. The honey gets a little spicy and the jalapeno slices get all candied and all kinds of delicious.
The salmon gets seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and lemon slices, then topped with the hot honey before getting roasted and after. It's the perfect mix of sweet and spicy and those candied jalapenos are tasty as ever.
Give this one a try if you're in the mood to shake things up!
Hot Honey Roasted Salmon
Adapted from How Sweet Eats
by Jessica Merchant
1/2 cup honey
1 jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced
1 (2 pound) salmon filet
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 lemon, thinly sliced
Preheat the oven to 425F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment.
Heat the honey and the jalapeno in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Let the honey come to a light simmer then turn off the honey. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Strain the honey through a fine mesh sieve to remove the peppers and the seeds.
Place your salmon filet on the foil and sprinkle it with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Spoon a few tablespoons of the honey on top. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.
Before serving, drizzle a bit more honey on the salmon and add the peppers if you wish. Serve with an extra spritz of lemon.
