  • 2 lb fresh salmon (1kg, cut into 4 portions)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 4 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Mix the soy sauce, honey and garlic. Pour over salmon and let it marinade in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  • Heat up a pan and melt the butter with the olive oil.
    When the butter starts foaming, add the salmon skin side down and sear for 4 minutes [or until it cooks halfway through if you look at the sides of the fish].
  • Flip it over carefully and cook it until the other side cooks to the halfway point. Remove from heat immediately. This will leave you with a succulent medium rare piece of salmon.
