Almost everyone has a quick, easy go-to meal they always go back to. For some it’s a simple chicken recipe, for others it’s a pork recipe. For my mom it’s spaghetti — but for me, it’s a salmon recipe.
It’s been a while since I’ve had a fish recipe, so we’re back again and this will probably not be the last time.
My go-to meal is a honey chili salmon typically served with some type of vegetable because you always need some form of veggie on your plate because trying to be somewhat healthy, and yes, I know salmon is healthy but you’ve got to get your veggie intake in.
I am also sure that for those of you who don’t fish or are allergic to it, I feel like it would probably taste great on chicken, but I haven’t tried it … yet. But now that I’ve written this I probably will, eventually — but maybe not this week since I’ve already figured out this week’s meals, because I’m that person.
The original recipe is living somewhere on Pinterest — shocker, but I have started doing my own thing and I couldn’t even tell you the original recipe anymore, nor could I find it.
Originally I tried this recipe because I was wanting to use honey and thought “hey, honey on salmon is good so let’s find a recipe on Pinterest,” and here we are with my now-go-to recipe. If I’m being completely honest I have this at least every other week and I’ve found that the sauce also tastes amazing on both asparagus and other veggies.
Typically I have it with asparagus because I love asparagus, but I didn’t have any the last time so I pulled out my California blend frozen veggies that have been unopened in my freezer waiting for me. The only thing about frozen veggies is that they taste extra bland to me, so I added more Cajun seasoning on it because, as I’ve stated before, I really like spicy things.
But I’m not going to give you the recipe on how to cook frozen veggies from a bag or any of that, but really all you have to do is not pour all of the mixtures on the salmon and then pour it on top of the cooked veggies.
Also, like normal, I don’t measure anything and I really just dump everything together for this one, so I wish you luck with this recipe because I swear every time I make it, it comes out tasting different — but it’s still just as good, I promise.
2 salmon fillets
1 tablespoon of olive oil
3 tablespoons of honey
1 teaspoon of red chili flakes
1 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning
Pre-heat your oven to 400. Mix the honey, red chili flakes and Cajun seasoning together in a small container.
On a baking sheet place the salmon and brush with olive oil then coat in the honey mixture.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes remove and let cool. If you think it needs to be a little spicier sprinkle a bit of Cajun seasoning on top of it.
