Make a splash at dinner with this salmon dish, ready in less than 30 minutes.

Lent, the 40 days before Easter when some Christians practice fasting and spiritual self-discipline, started this week.

For some people, observing Lent means avoiding meat other than fish once a week. To make those meals easier for you, we’ve found some simple fish dishes to make at home.

Put together dinner for two to three people with honey garlic salmon from Rasa Malaysia. All you need is a skillet and a few ingredients.


  • 12-ounce salmon, cut into long strips — one for each person you’re serving
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon warm water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar (can also use lemon juice)
  • 1/2 lemon, cut into thin wedges
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Cayenne pepper


  1. Total cook time should take 15 minutes, plus about 5 minutes to prepare the ingredients.
  2. Sprinkle the salmon with salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper to taste and set aside. The surface should not be completely covered in seasoning.
  3. Mix honey, water, vinegar (or lemon juice) and a pinch of salt. Stir until the mixture is well combined.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a skillet and pan-fry the salmon until it’s cooked about halfway through. Stir in garlic and heat until the garlic is browned, then add the honey mixture and lemon wedges to the skillet. Cook until the ingredients form a sticky sauce over the salmon.
