Hot to make Grilled Hot Honey Salmon
- Once your salmon is seasoned, place it on the grill or a baking sheet into the oven, and let the fish cook undisturbed for a few minutes. This will give your salmon a nice crusty sear, and seal in all those delicious flavors. You will find that the salmon has almost completely cooked.
- Then, lather your hot honey mixture on top of the salmon and let it cook for another few minutes until the hot honey is caramelized and bubbly.
While your salmon is cooking, consider grilling some fresh zucchini to add some extra flavor and nutrition to your dish. Simply slice the zucchini, toss with olive oil and seasoning, and place on the grill alongside your salmon. The zucchini will cook up to be tender and juicy, and make the perfect side dish for your hot honey salmon
When everything is cooked to perfection, serve the hot honey salmon and grilled zucchini with some rice or a salad. Your family and friends will be amazed by the delicious flavors and textures of this easy summer meal.
And the clean up? Oh, it’s a breeze. No need to worry about dishes piling up in the sink because everything is cooked on the grill.
In conclusion, this hot honey salmon recipe is quick, easy, and fool-proof! You can make it on the grill or in the oven, and it is a perfect choice for a summer night dinner.
