Happy Friday, or as we like to call it, Fri-YAY!
Fridays are super exciting for us because it's the weekend (duh!), and on the weekends we finally have the time to really cook and create meals that might be a bit more elaborate than what we have time for during the week.
That being said, sometimes it's nice to just have a simple meal that is nutritious and allows you to maximize relaxation time. Which is EXACTLY what this salmon is! This is a super easy dinner that you can definitely make with little to no hassle during the week. The whole thing takes only 22 minutes (perfect), prep is pretty minimal, and results are delicious. Enjoy!

Recipe Courtesy of Garlic Matters
- 250 g salmon fillets
- 4 tbsp light soy sauce
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 Black Garlic cloves
- 2 tbsp lemon zest
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp grated ginger
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- salt & pepper to taste
- wedges of lemon to serve
- Season salmon with salt & pepper.
- Smash black garlic with a fork or a side of a knife's blade, until it turns into a rough paste. Add all remaining ingredients and reduce this mixture in a pan on a slow heat so it starts to bubble and becomes noticeably thicker (about 5-7 minutes).
- Place your salmon in the pan with the garlic sauce and fry for 10-12 minutes, coating it with the sauce during cooking.
