Easy Honey Glazed Salmon _ FamilyFreshMeals.com -

We all know we should try to eat healthy. But let’s face it, it’s just not that easy.

I mean, there are so many rules! It’s not enough to eat veggies and fruit – you have to eat a variety of different veggies and fruits. And you’re supposed to eat fats, but they have to be the good fats – the kind you get in nuts and seafood.

And it doesn’t help that a lot of the things you’re supposed to eat are just, well, not that good. Yeah, I know a plate of steamed kale is packed with nutrients, but it’s just not my idea of a wonderful meal.

We really need more recipes that are healthy and delicious. Meals that include all that good stuff you’re supposed to eat, like fresh veggies and healthy fats, without leaving out the taste.

Well, this one does all that. It starts with salmon, which has all those wonderful omega-3 fatty acids the papers are always going on about. And it’s served over mixed greens, with seeds and nuts and dried fruit – all just loaded with nutrients. But it’s also glazed with honey and pan seared, which gives it a beautiful browned crust and a melt-in-your mouth tender texture.

Heck, if you didn’t know what was in it, you’d never even know it was healthy.

2. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick pan to medium heat. Season salmon with salt and pepper, to taste. Place the fish in the pan, skin side down. Cook about 3 minutes or until the skin no longer sticks to the pan then flip.  (Note: I like to remove the skin after flipping.)

3. Add the honey to the pan, it should melt instantly and start to bubble.  Coat the fish completely in the honey and cook through, about another 3-5 minutes depending on how thick the fish is.  Be sure to keep a close eye on the temperature so the honey does not get too hot and start to burn.

4. Remove the fish from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes before placing on the salad so the greens to not wilt. When ready, place the fish on the salad, top with the seed and nut mixture and drizzle a dressing of your choice.
