Almost anyone would agree that salmon has won the well-deserved title of “superfood”. This fish is loaded with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins B12, A & D, protein, bone-protecting selenium, and so much more. It is truly “the ultimate catch”. You will find many salmon recipes on my blog, not only because of the aforementioned reasons, but because it’s super easy to prepare and almost always taste good!

Honey Sriracha Glazed Salmon Variations
Don’t Like Spicy! Well, you’re definitely missing out (just kidding!). If you’re not a spice person, eliminate the dry sriracha seasoning & red chili flakes from your sauce. In its place, add 2 tbsp of soya sauce instead of a tsp, add in fresh garlic then top with fresh cilantro!
I Don’t Like Salmon! – Try this recipe with chicken…that’s another banger!
Honey Sriracha Glaze Salmon Cooking Tips
Broil, Baby, Broil! – This dish does well with a couple minutes under the broiler. You must keep a close eye on it, and remove as soon as the top layer of sauce begins to caramelize. You do not want to overcook or worse, burn your delicious piece of salmon.
Marinate – I personally love marinating my meats and fish. If you have time, even just for 30 minutes to allow the flavour to soak in, do it!
Don’t Overcook – You’ll know your salmon is ready when the flesh of the salmon flakes. This means it separates easily when pressed or poked with a fork. Personally, it took me a while to get my fish out at the perfect time – my Caribbean background of “well done”/”overcooked” food was ingrained in me. Who else can relate?
Dry Rub & Sriracha Seasoning – I recommend seasoning generously. If you want that bright, fire-cracker colour, use a mix of the sriracha seasoning and paprika. You’ll get the colour…without as much spice!
What is the Difference Between Butter and Ghee?
If you follow me on IG, yesterday’s post was all about Ghee! So, what is it? Ghee is clarified butter, this is the short of it. It is made by simmering butter slowly to remove any milk solids and water. It is an ultra-rich tasting butter, and extremely delicious with seafood – think of that melted butter they serve with your lobster/ crab legs at your favourite restaurant.
The particular brand I use is Lee’s Ghee, you can find it in most grocery and health food stores. While on Keto, I was introduced to it – and I have no regrets about it! Here’s some additional information on Ghee by Aliza Abarbanel at Healthyish
Clarifying butter by removing water creates a higher smoke point—about 465º F compared to butter’s 350º F. The clarifying process also removes casein and lactose, making ghee suitable for the dairy-sensitive. The absence of water even makes ghee shelf-stable, meaning it can be stored without any refrigeration for extended periods of time.Aliza Abarbanel
