  1. Step 1 Prepare and Cook Salmon

    * Defrost frozen Alaska sockeye salmon which has been frozen just after harvest at the peak of freshness!*

    • Pat thawed salmon dry, drizzle with olive oil and season with garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, salt & pepper.
    • Coat your air fryer basket with oil to prevent sticking. Air fry salmon fillets at 400 degrees for approximately 7 minutes. Be sure to adjust baking time based on thickness of fillets.

    If using a conventional oven, bake at 425 for approximately 9 minutes depending on thickness of fillet.

  2. Step 2 Prepare the Honey Glaze

    • In a mixing bowl, add soy sauce, hot honey, lime juice, garlic, ginger, and crushed red pepper. Whisk thoroughly to combine.
    • While the salmon cooks, in a saucepan over medium heat add butter and sauce mixture. Bring up to a gentle boil and then reduce heat to a medium simmer while continuously stirring. Cook for 3-5 minutes until sauce consistency thickens.
  3. Step 3 Serve

    • Serve and pour hot honey glaze overtop. Garnish with green onions, sesame seeds, and a wedge of lime. Enjoy!
