Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Season salmon with salt and pepper before gently placing in the skillet (skin side down if filets are not skinless).
  2. Cook salmon for 5-6 minutes until the filet easily releases from the pan then flip to cook the other side.
  3. Add the garlic to the skillet and saute for about 30 seconds. In a small bowl, mix the honey and lemon juice together before adding to the skillet.
  4. Continue cooking until salmon is cooked through and opaque, about 1-3 minutes.
