This ultra-easy salmon recipe is a winner when it comes to week night dinners. We love easy main courses like our Classic Southern Fried Shrimp and Lemon Pepper-Flavored Fried Chicken Wings. This is one of our favorite dinner recipes you’ll definitely want in your rotation.

Fresh salmon filets are perfectly seasoned, quickly pan-seared and basted in an incredible honey, garlic sauce infused with a little soy sauce and citrus, then popped under the broiler to finish caramelizing until moist and flaky.

Blackened Honey-Glazed Salmon

This blackened salmon packs incredible flavor and is so easy to make. It's got Cajun seasoning with hints of citrus coating the salmon, then it is seared to perfection!
