Honey Garlic Salmon

  • 4 1/2-lb. salmon filets, skin off

  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 4 Tbsps. honey
  • 2 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. water
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • Chopped cilantro or parsley

Preheat oven to broil on medium heat. Heat olive oil in skillet over medium. Sauté garlic for 1 minute. Add honey, water, and soy sauce. Combine thoroughly, then add lemon juice. Add salmon filets to pan and cook in sauce for 3-4 minutes, continuously spooning sauce over tops. Baste fish once more before placing on a pan and broiling for 5-6 minutes, until tops are charred and salmon is cooked to your liking.

Rice Pilaf

When butter is melted, add rice and stir well; cooking, stirring frequently, until rice is lightly browned. Pour chicken broth into skillet; stir to incorporate, then bring to a boil. Once rice mixture begins to boil, transfer mixture to prepared casserole dish; cover with aluminum foil and place in oven; bake 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove casserole dish from oven and uncover; add celery, parsley, carrots, and sliced almonds. Season with pepper to taste, then stir well to distribute ingredients.
