Just because it’s colder outside doesn’t mean I have to put the grill away! To make this easy, quick and delicious grilled salmon, I brought out the indoor grill. Of course you could also grill outside or simply sear your salmon in a sauté pan too. The tasty glaze gives this dish a sweet and smoky flavor that I love. It’s really similar to smoked salmon. A beautiful, light and healthy dish to enjoy before (or during) the holiday binge!
- 1 cup honey
- 1/4 cup fresh rosemary leaves
- Zest and juice of 1 lemon

Pour honey into a small pot and heat over medium until slightly thinned and just hot, about 3 minutes.
Add rosemary and lemon zest and stir.
Remove from heat and let sit to infuse for 15 minutes.
Strain into a small bowl.
Arrange salmon, skin side down, in a shallow dish.
Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with 2 T honey.
Cover dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour to marinate.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-low and rub grates with the olive oil.
Place salmon, flesh side down, and cook, rotating 180 degrees on each side, 5-6 minutes per side, for medium.
