Crispy Honey Orange Glazed Salmon fillets are pan-fried in the most beautiful honey-orange-garlic sauce, with a splash of soy for added flavour!
Where do I start with these Crispy Honey Orange Glazed Salmon fillets? I think I just said it all! I don’t know which was the best part: the juicy salmon with crisp and charred edges; or the flavour of this sauce. Who would’ve thought salmon and honey with orange could go together so incredibly well?
How did this one come about? One f my readers wrote in and asked about subbing out lemon juice for orange juice in this Honey Garlic Butter Salmon recipe, and what flavours would work well. IMMEDIATELY my brain went into CRISPY over drive. No foil or baking. Just good old fashioned searing in a skillet, with charred edges and a soft and juicy centre.
Man oh man. This is it. The salmon recipe of our dreams. Forget honey orange chicken when salmon takes over!
And as per usual, drizzle those fillets in those saucy pan juices.

- 2 tablespoons butter (or use olive oil if you wish)
- 4x 6-ounce salmon fillets (or 170 grams each), with or without skin
- Juice from half an orange (about ¼ cup fresh squeezed orange juice)
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 4 cloves garlic, crushed
- Kosher salt and ground pepper, to taste
- Half an orange, sliced to serve
- Heat butter (or oil) in a pan or skillet over medium-high heat, Add the salmon, skin-side down, and sear on one side for 3-4 minutes. Flip salmon and sear for 2 minutes. Pour in the orange juice and allow to reduce to half the quantity (it takes about 1 minute to reduce down if your pan is hot enough). Add the garlic and cook until fragrant (30 seconds). Move the salmon to the sides of the pan and add in the honey, soy sauce and garlic; stirring well to combine all of the flavours together. Bring to a simmer until reduced to a nice syrup (this takes about another 30 seconds to 1 minute), and move the salmon around in the sauce to evenly coat. Remove from heat once the salmon is cooked to your liking.
- Season with salt and pepper to your tastes. Drizzle with the sauce to serve. Best served over rice, noodles, steamed vegetables or with a salad.
