Serving size: 2
Preparation time: 5 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins


2 wild caught salmon fillets (about 3-4 oz each)
½ Tablespoon coconut oil (or olive oil)
½ Tablespoon honey
3 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium to high heat. Season both sides of salmon with salt and pepper. Add salmon to skillet and cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, until golden brown.

While the salmon is cooking, whisk together honey, vinegar and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Add vinegar mixture to skillet and simmer until fish is fork-tender and liquid reduces and thickens, about 5 minutes. For a thicker, reduced sauce, simmer for 5 to 10 additional minutes. Just make sure you don't overcook the salmon.
