  • 500g salmon fillet: Cut into bite-sized pieces for easy eating.
  • 2 tablespoons honey: Adds a natural sweetness that caramelizes beautifully.
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter: For a rich, smooth glaze.
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced: Brings a pungent depth to the glaze.
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce: Introduces a savory umami element.
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice: A splash of acidity to balance the flavors.
  • Salt and pepper: Season the salmon to enhance its natural flavors.
  • Chopped parsley or green onions for garnish (optional): Adds a pop of color and freshness.
  • Sesame seeds for garnish (optional): Provides a subtle crunch and visual appeal.


  1. Season the Salmon: Begin by seasoning your salmon bites with salt and pepper, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  2. Cook the Salmon: Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the salmon pieces, cooking until they are golden and nearly cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove the salmon from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Make the Glaze: In the same skillet, reduce the heat to medium. Add the unsalted butter and minced garlic, sautéing until the garlic is fragrant and golden, about 1 minute. Stir in the honey, soy sauce, and lemon juice, and cook until the mixture has thickened into a glaze, about 2 minutes.
  4. Glaze the Salmon: Return the salmon bites to the skillet, gently tossing them in the honey butter garlic glaze until they are evenly coated and heated through.
  5. Garnish and Serve: Transfer the glazed salmon bites to a serving dish. If desired, sprinkle with chopped parsley, green onions, and sesame seeds for garnish.
