Recipe: Honey Glazed Salmon with Citrus Avocado Salad

from the Cooking Classy


Salmon 4 (6 oz) skinless salmon fillets
8 tsp honey, divided
8 tsp flour, divided
2 Tbsp olive oil
Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Salsa 1 large Hass avocado, peeled, cored and diced
1/3 cup chopped red onion (I like to run under cool water to remove harsh bite)
1 tsp orange zest 2 small navel oranges, peeled, segmented and diced*
1 tsp lime zest
2 Tbsp lime juice
1 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle tops of fillets with salt and pepper. Then drizzle tops with 1 tsp honey and rub over salmon to evenly cover. Sprinkle tops with 1 tsp flour and spread to cover.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 Tbsp olive oil. Once oil is hot add 2 salmon fillets to pan and cook until bottom is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Carefully rotate salmon and cook until bottom is golden, about 2 minutes longer. Repeat process with remaining 2 fillets.

Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray then transfer salmon to baking sheet. Bake in preheated until cooked through, about 7 - 10 minutes longer (cook time will vary depending on thickness of salmon). Serve warm with citrus avocado salsa.

Add all salsa ingredients to a medium bowl and gently toss, while seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
