For the glaze
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons finely minced fresh rosemary
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon

  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring to combine, until sauce is just starting to bubble (about 2-3 minutes).
  3. Add rosemary and lemon zest and stir for another minute.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool for 15 minutes to let herbs infuse the sauce/glaze.
  5. Strain and discard solids (optional).
  6. Drizzle glaze all over salmon fillets, marinate for 30 minutes.
  7. In an oven-proof skillet, set over medium-high heat, add oil/butter.

  9. Remove skillet from heat and place it in the oven set high on broil.
  10. Continue cooking, 5 inches under the broiler, for another 5 minutes for every inch thickness of salmon (i.e., if your salmon fillets are 1.5 inches thick, then cook them for 7.5 minutes).
  11. Drizzle any left-over glaze. Serve immediately.
