Honey Garlic Salmon

This is probably one of my easiest recipes on the blog. It’s so quick that I made it while talking in a 15 minute conversation with my sister. I have used frozen salmon fillets but fresh would be even better. Salmon is my preferred fish as it tastes great and can hold firm and isn’t flaky, not to mention the numerous health benefits of eating salmon. I have used my 3 staple ingredients. which I do, for most of my savory recipes- garlic, red wine vinegar and red chili flakes. Those 3 ingredients can add so much flavor to any dish. This quickfire dish has all the elements to get your taste buds tingling. The cherry tomatoes add a great acidity to the dish and the crunch of the roasted pecans is a perfect accompaniment for the fish. The star ingredient of this dish, however, is the natural honey which gives it that sticky texture and adds a sweetness to the savoriness of the fish.
